After seeing the excellent reviews, we visited Papillon early in our stay in Chamonix. We ordered the Tofu noodles, Chicken noodles, Chicken Coconut curry and Meatballs in tomato sauce (rice/potatoes not included and need to be ordered as a side dish). Unfortunately the meatballs had just sold out so we decided to share the other three dishes rather than order... More

First place we went to. Good food but nothing to special. Coconut chicken turned out to be green curry. No too expensive and if you like thai food worth the money. Only 3 stars for no fireworks :)

Astounding that a No.1 rated restaurant on Trip Advisor is a take-away. However, it lived up to its expectations. It is situated a walk away from the town on the main street, the menu is not vast but they actually make the food in front of you. My husband had the famous coconut curry mentioned in previous reviews - it... More

Down to earth owners, terrifically tasty food - a wonderful experience. We took the salmon and potato salad for a picnic (they recommended a terrific bottle of white wine for us as well) in Les Praz, and we strongly recommend Papillon.

Ok... everything is fresh. The people are adorable, the food is fabulous, the choices are excellent and the service is top notch. What can I say, I love Papillon. Tons of gluten-free and vegan options, healthy and affordable. This place is only take out however, though they have a cute bench right out front. I would recommend calling and ordering... More

Thank you for a wonderful, tasty, wholesome 'take away' meal! As a vegetarian travelling through France, I am delighted to find Papillon and my whole family loved this meal (non-vegetarians!) The stir fry and curry I had were delicious, and comments from my boys as to 'when can we go there again' speak volumes! Highly recommended!

Every bit as good as described - was only surprised that it wasn't a 100% veg place after having skimmed through some reviews here. In any case worth a try!

Thanks for being in Chamonix! It's hard to fight the temptation to eat here more often than i already do...Your sweet potato curry is one of my favourite things to eat - ever! Service is brilliant and even if i only come in for one thing i always end up with a bag of goodies that i can't get anywhere... More

Papillon is everything Chamonix needs. Awesome, healthy and friendly and Vegan/Vegetarian/GF to boot. (It's nice to see something labelled Veg in France that doesn't contain anchovies!!) From someone who has grown to detest savoyard food with a passion Papillon is light and fresh! My boyfriend and I eat here at least once a week, we love the service and the... More
