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

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.

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.
