We were attracted by the quite nice exotic look of the Monkey Bar and by its choice of barbecued meat. However, the overall dinner experience was highly disapointing.
Beside the fact that the quality of the meat was far below expectations, we felt cheated by the staff.
We had a bottle of red wine, but while eating, I had some doubts if it was really the bottle I ordered. So I asked for the wine menu again to check, which was quite easy since they reproduced the labels of the various bottles in the menu. Well, the bottle we got was not the one we had ordered. The wine was ok, so this wouldn't have been a major problem - but they billed the wine we ordered (35 €). When I complained that I was disposed to pay the price of the wine I have got but not willing to pay for a wine that I ordered and didn't get, the answer was: "Yes, but since you have accepted the wine, you have to pay that price." The waitress had even the audacity to pretend that the wine we got was more expensive than the one we had ordered. Hard to check, since the wine we had got was not on the wine menu...
Summary: relatively nice setting, mediocre food, try to rip off clients ... The Monkey Bar has all the major attributes of a tourist trap. Avoid !
