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

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
