Came across this place and really enjoyed the poutine and smoked meat sandwich! It was slightly more expensive than expected but I would still return.

Looking for some traditional Eastern Canadian food ... head to La Belle Patate. Hidden away in an industrial area of Canmore, (so you need to know where you're going). Decor is basic, over the counter service - but truly it's all about the poutine which comes ten different ways. The 'traditional' is always my favourite. The piled high Smoked Meat... More

We came here on our way back into Calgary from Banff. My friend was recommended this place so we thought to give it a try. So we tried two poutines, a hotdog and a sandwich. The classic and smoked meat poutine were wonderful. The fries were freshly fried and golden brown. The cheese curds were just melting. The gravy is... More

One of the best poutine's I have had! I have had poutine in Montreal and supposedly "the best in Ottawa "...does not even come close to LA Belle Patate ❤

Came here expecting a taste of true Quebec poutine and smoked meat. Both were somewhat disappointing. The cheese in the poutine was not exactly fresh (it had lost its squeak and chewyness). We were here on a Sunday evening and this place is closed on Monday-Tuesday. As we sat there eating, they ran out of curd cheese and were offering... More

I've been a supporter of this place since it opened. I still go there from time to time, but less frequently now. I order the Smoked meat poutine every time I go. Have never needed to try any other one...this was my go to. As of late, the menu has decreased in size, the opening hours are shorter, and the... More

Had a poutine dish and a steamie which is a steamed hot dog. Hot dogs at costco are much better,I guess these are for kids. The poutine was ok but the gravey was not hot enough and it didn't even start to melt the cold cheese curds. Expensive for what you get, not worht a revisit. Only open till 3pm.

- staff at this little dive were AMAZING: so friendly, guided us through the menu and options we had and was simply fantastic - menu offers a variety of comfort foods: poutine was delicious: great fries, toppings and most importantly real cheese curds - good value - lots of locals eating when we were there

(4.5) Wow, a very unique and tasty restaurant. Kind of a "little hole in the wall" strip mall industrial location with limited seating....all that being said your taste buds will be glad for the treat! :)

We have visited here three times on a couple of trips. The regular/plain poutine wasn't our favorite, but we always prefer it dressed up a little. Second and third visits we got the Mexican poutine and it is awesome. On those specialty poutines like the Mexican, you can only order regular or larger, so it is for sharing unless you... More
