The food was seriously delicious, especially the falafel artichoke salad. I could eat that every day for the rest of my life. Go on Tuesday for 1/2 price wine.

We arrived to Chamonix and needed a lunch and something to drink. Monkey was a great spot: the food (burgers and salads) were excellent - better that you'd expect based on the looks of this place. The personnel were super-friendly.

We had a fabulous evening meal at Monkey, 8 of us in total including 4 teenagers. We were able to reserve a table to accommodate our group and despite the fact that we arrived an hour early we were seated and served immediately. The menu is mainly burgers (no complaints from the teenagers from the off!), great music (play list... More

Me and my wife went there and was very busy. Took a little to take a sit and the kitchen forgot our burgers. Besides that, food very good (monday half price for burgers), Nice staff and place.

The chilli burger nearly blew my head off but was terrific - one of the best! We turned up on quiz night and had great fun, winning another burger! Beer was good and the atmosphere was buzzing, due to the number of teams competing and the comedy of the quiz host and his pals. Defo a good place to hang... More

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
