Nice place to chill & good pub food

We were almost every day here for couple of drinks and we also ate once here, I had salmon and my partner beef curry (day menu) good prices for food, good taste and loved the chill atmosphere. No need to dress up, come as you are, ski pants, jeans everything is fine. Good view on aguille du midi... read more

We had good burgers here but realised it was more of a young person's late night drinking place. Burgers were good but menu was very limited.

Really wish we had found this bar earlier in our stay in Chamonix. Great atmosphere, found a lovely corner with some sofas and a big table for a bit of R & R. Really good bar snacks too. Sweet potato wedges and crispy duck pancakes to name a couple. Really well done. Only thing missing; an open fire!

A nice place to relax and have a couple of beers. It's in a quiet enough area, with a good view of Aguille du Midi, and often has live music. The only negative things are the relatively high prices of drinks, and the sometimes inattentive service.

We recently had dinner here as it was near our hotel and got good reviews on tripadvisor. Our initial impressions were not great. It's a dark, pokey bar space. However, our server was very pleasant, our food very tasty and very good value. If you're looking for a casual place to eat good food then this us the place for... More

I was in Chamonix this past weekend skiing. The transportation is horrible in the town because the busses do not run late and the taxis are expensive. After getting food and a drink from the bar, my friend and I rushed to the bus stop to find that we missed the bus. The staff helped us contact a taxi and... More

3 of us had fish and chips last night in Monkey (Thursdays). Huuuge portion, absolutely gorgeous, better than English fish and chips! Couldn't believe how cheap it was for the quality. Finished just in time for 9pm 2 for 1 cocktails too- blew our socks off. Only popped in for a quick one and ended staying all night :) Top... More

After a visit to Aiguille du Midi we left the cable car continued for lunch in Chamonix. We soon left the main street and found our selfs in front of "Monkeys". Everyone was hungry and we basically stopped at the first place we found. Little did we know that we had stumbled on to a little jewel. There were some... More

We stayed a 2 minute walk away, and went in twice for food. The atmosphere, service and meal were great. We were disappointed there was no space on our final evening.
