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

There should be a place like this in every city. This is a healthy take away made with fresh veggies and ingredients and very tasty all around! Been there 2 times in 2 days and would go there again if i ever go back to Chamonix!

Vegetarians and non-vegetarians in our group absolutely LOVED the food at Papillon. Couple that with terrific service and an ultra hip vibe and it's no wonder we got food here on numerous occasions and we weren't the only ones, the staff there knew many if the people on a first name basis. I still dream about the sweet potato curry... More

This is not your ordinary takeaway place. The food is top notch, and we ended up going there several times during our stay. The service is perfect: Efficient, people are smiling and really enjoying what they are doing, and the food is freshlymade while you wait. The Shanghai beef is a winner, and the Sweet potato yellow curry is very... More

This was such a treat when we arrived in Chamonix - we went here because we were both tired and wanted a night in. Take out that wasn't cheese, potatoes, or red meat in the mountains - that exists?! Perfect. We ordered the veggie curry of the week (which was lentils with spinach I believe), the yellow curry with sweet... More

Location was very convenient to my hotel. I ate here after a day of skiing, it was great not to have to get dressed up for dinner. I had the coconut chicken curry which was excellent for take out. However i wish they would provide a plate, as it was I had to dump the rice into the curry to... More

Visited Chamonix in January 2014, and although there are some quite good restaurants in town, nothing beats being able to relax in your apartment/hotel room after a long day on the slopes with some healthy take-away. This great little take-away spot is worth a visit. Great curries, fresh salads: they change them daily... all delicious, all easy, super friendly staff,... More

Just got back from half term with our two kids. Went self catering and visited papillon after reviews on here. Ended up going three times in one week which tells u how good it was! The chicken coconut curry was to die for. The nearest thing to a real Thai curry we have had in the 14 years since we... More
