Saw this place on trip advisor after 2 weeks in Italy. We were desperate for something other than gnocchi, pasta, or bruschetta. Monkey hit the spot! I had a burger with goat cheese, mushrooms, and grilled onions. The bun is homemade and was yummy! On Mondays, from 6-8 pm, they have half price burgers which we managed to catch. Monkey... More

Their salad of Crispy fried duck with orange segments & pomegranate on a bed of rocket is to die for. There is no better salad served in chamonix. Generous portion, very reasonable price, friendly staff...what more can you wish for? Except some sunshine maybe! :-)

The Monkey bar is a bar, plain and simple, Not especially fancy, but friendly enough. A nice mix of locals and tourists among the customers.

Outdoor ping pong and beer. What more to life is there? Go for apres ski happy hours. Young crowd, but they seem nice.

It seems that Monkey is famed for its burgers but I’m afraid we found them nothing special at all. The actual burgers themselves were very poorly made and to be honest I’m not sure the meat was beef to start with! I must admit I’m rather partial to horsemeat but it doesn’t have the fat content to make really good... More

This is my 3rd time in Chamonix Sud and this place has become a regular haunt. We were there again last night. The burgers (Plat de jour) were half price (9 euros for both) and they were delicious, plus the chips were to die for! Happy hour again, 2 pints of lager and 2 white wines for 8.5 euros. A... More
