Eating out in Chamonix for a family of four (teenage daughters 19 & 15) is expensive. But we ate here twice and the food was lovely. 8oz burger was about 10 euros and was very very tasty. Bill for the four of us with sides and drinks came to about 80 euros. Vibe was good, they even changed the music... More

Monkey Bar is in a part of Chamonix that draws a local crowd, everybody knows everybody- and this gives way to a cliquey vibe. The breakfast is probably the best in Cham but the place has a real amateur feel- service is slow and employees are kind of 'detached' from their duties and tables are sticky. Luckily for them, the... More

We stopped off here for drinks and/or food most days, and we're not normally like that. Food was excellent after a long day's ski and is great value for money. Very welcoming staff, ideal for the younger croud and have a happy hour and drinks specials as well as a live band there one night. Great to sit inside or... More

Went here seeking to fulfil my craving for a burger while on holiday. Slightly away from the main tourist sites it's definitely worth a visit. The burger selection is varied and would highly recommend the pulled pork. The burgers don't come with chips but the portions that come as sides are large. Well worth a visit.

We really enjoyed this place! The burgers were good as well as the bbq pork. They have great food and drink specials and the prices generally are really reasonable. It's a common place to find lots of english speakers. There is a fun ping pong table and great outdoor seating. The wait staff is friendly and patient despite being crazy... More
