I stumbled across the place on a wander around town and I am very happy that I did. A really great place for food, booze and coffees. It's has a laid back atmosphere in the afternoons then some lively parties with the locals when the sun goes down. I can't wait to go back.

Burgers and drinks. Very nice fast food. Seemed to me that this is a typical place where young people drop by to eat and drink after skiing

While traveling through Europe with friends, we stopped in Chamonix for 3 nights. We decided to try Monkey the first night because we'd heard that they had a great deal on burgers. The burgers were quite tasty and the two-for-one drinks only added to the experience. If you have room, try the desserts - they're worth it. Because we had... More

It too a while to find Monkey but when we did we weren't disappointed, on the night we were there it was quiet but with kids in tow wasn't a bad thing. Burgers and the wife's curry were really quite tasty this is what a neighborhood bar should be like. If your after a good meal and beer at reasonable... More

We had had it with French food & just wanted a good burger. That's exactly what we had! Burgers were great & loved the Hand-cut fries! Jose our server was friendly & efficient!

Read the reviews on trip advisor and thought we'd give it a go. Was greeted by what I thought was Seth Rogan, but it was in fact the bloke from Amityville (ok he was just a looky like). Place was quite small and decor was a bit shabby but we were comfortable. We both ordered a burger (my wife's a... More

Ate at Monkey yesterday lunchtime - had the salmon salad daily special which totally hit the spot. Shared starters (great duck wraps). Salads and the burgers were fabulous - really great quality. Nice friendly atmosphere with a good outside terrace area in safe pedestrian area - so the kid could run around while we had lunch. Great drinks (decent wine... More
