Went into monkey for Taco Tuesdays. The service was impeccable, especially from our waiter Will. I had one vegetarian and one chicken taco, the vegetarian option was particularly delicious. My friend had the duck pancakes, a solid favourite. Couldn't have had a better night! Would highly recommend the frozen margarita (Ali Wilson is a cocktail connoisseur)

We decided we wanted a good burger and a beer and thats exactly what we got. The bar is based on a traditional British pub set up. Our hotel was nearby so we had passed it a few times and where slightly put off by the impression that it was just a party pub, but after reading the other reviews... 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.

No need to dress up, come as you are, ski pants, jeans everything is fine. Good view on aguille du midi and nice... More

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.
