Had dinner at this place and found the food to be very good. The Mexibowl and burgers were superb. Fast service from English speaking staff.

Called in for lunch. Ice cold drinks and great food...with a mountain view to die for. You have to visit but you really need to get an outside table

Wow...what a meal, basicly full after sharing a portion of nachos! Which were soo tasty, with pulled pork on top. Next we got the wraps with chips. Again large portions and soo tasty. Was hoping to try the sticky toffee, but physically couldnt eat anymore. Great spot :-) well worth a visit.

Food was really good, had two different kind if burgers, sweet potato fries and slaw. Ok seating, good atmosphere. However waiter demanded payment up front, as she was about to go off duty (still there 1,5 hours later). Then had to remind her of our order twice.... Received the drinks and burgers after a good wait....

Amazing bar for a good beer/ cocktail. Was there during the EU Soccer finals and had all matches streamed on 3 large screens. Burgers we had there were great food for a good price. Staff were super friendly. Wish I could have stayed longer.

Unfortunately, I never ate at the Monkey Bar, however, I did frequent this bar almost every night that I stayed in Chamonix with my study abroad program. Not only was it an easy walk from our hotel, but the bartenders were extremely friendly and made the experience all the better. On Bastille Day, there was live music in the courtyard... More

This is a bar/restaurant that is filled with young and loud crowd who seem to live in Chamonix and work there. The food was ok. My wife had the pulled pork sandwich which was slightly better than the spicy burger I had. Ok food for the money and if you like the young single atmosphere then this may be the... More

Service cheerful and friendly. The burgers were freshly made with plenty of spice. our choice of wine was not great but then again beer goes so much better with burgers.

Such a good laid back atmosphere. We ended up going here every night of our week stay. Happy hour was great, always drunk too much wine. Watched the rugby here one night. Had the burgers one night which were really good. Would definitely go back.
