Went into monkey for Taco Tuesdays. The service was impeccable, especially from our waiter Will. I had one vegetarian and one chicken taco, the vegetarian option was particularly delicious. My friend had the duck pancakes, a solid favourite. Couldn't have had a better night! Would highly recommend the frozen margarita (Ali Wilson is a cocktail connoisseur)

We decided we wanted a good burger and a beer and thats exactly what we got. The bar is based on a traditional British pub set up. Our hotel was nearby so we had passed it a few times and where slightly put off by the impression that it was just a party pub, but after reading the other reviews... More

We had good burgers here but realised it was more of a young person's late night drinking place. Burgers were good but menu was very limited.

We were almost every day here for couple of drinks and we also ate once here, I had salmon and my partner beef curry (day menu) good prices for food, good taste and loved the chill atmosphere. No need to dress up, come as you are, ski pants, jeans everything is fine. Good view on aguille du midi and nice... More

Really wish we had found this bar earlier in our stay in Chamonix. Great atmosphere, found a lovely corner with some sofas and a big table for a bit of R & R. Really good bar snacks too. Sweet potato wedges and crispy duck pancakes to name a couple. Really well done. Only thing missing; an open fire!

A nice place to relax and have a couple of beers. It's in a quiet enough area, with a good view of Aguille du Midi, and often has live music. The only negative things are the relatively high prices of drinks, and the sometimes inattentive service.

We recently had dinner here as it was near our hotel and got good reviews on tripadvisor. Our initial impressions were not great. It's a dark, pokey bar space. However, our server was very pleasant, our food very tasty and very good value. If you're looking for a casual place to eat good food then this us the place for... More

I was in Chamonix this past weekend skiing. The transportation is horrible in the town because the busses do not run late and the taxis are expensive. After getting food and a drink from the bar, my friend and I rushed to the bus stop to find that we missed the bus. The staff helped us contact a taxi and... More

3 of us had fish and chips last night in Monkey (Thursdays). Huuuge portion, absolutely gorgeous, better than English fish and chips! Couldn't believe how cheap it was for the quality. Finished just in time for 9pm 2 for 1 cocktails too- blew our socks off. Only popped in for a quick one and ended staying all night :) Top... More
