Great food, great atmosphere

We stayed a 2 minute walk away, and went in twice for food. The atmosphere, service and meal were great. We were disappointed there was no space on our final evening.

Don't know if we were really stoned but three out of three had the best burger ever. I strongly recomend the amaretto sour

Nice decent food with good atmosphere. However kind of thought food presentation and actual cooking was a bit rushed. However staff and atmosphere were great.

Me and my partner got lots on our walk around Chamonix and stumbled across Monkey. It was the first bar in a 15 minute walk that had more than 2 people in. What really took our eye to this place was the ping pong table which was right out front of the bar. We went in and just made it... More

Ate here two times during our 4 day stay in Chamonix. The burgers were so good we just had to come back for a second helping! At 15,50 Euros for a burger, beer, fries and coleslaw, the price is also pretty hard to beat! Service was super friendly as well. A lively atmosphere with good music too. Will definitely be... More

Decent bar but difficult to find worth the hunt though - decent live bands and very good tex/mex restaurant next door

As we had 3 birthdays on our table of 6, I dropped the staff at 'Monkey' an email to assist in organising a surprise bottle of champagne and a birthday cake. The chef came up trumps with a great cake,... More

I had just come down from a superb days skiing and was recommended to check out monkey bar in Chamonix Sud. Straight away I was greeted by a charming French bar tender who was happy to converse in English. I had a tremendous pint of Guinness and a large tasty plate of nachos. Listening to some fantastic youthful music the... More

Since 2009 this place has got better and better. At the mo on my annual visit to the amazing Chamonix, the monkey bar has outdone itself with its new decor, new staff/chef and delicious menu. The burgers are out of this world and the specials are seriously competing with the 5 star 'savoie' resto's. Come here for seasonaire banter and... More

If you want après with great tunes, awesome eats and cheap booze then look no further! It's even got a table tennis table! What's not to like?
