“Easy bar and burger place”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 6, 2013

Nice afterski place for people not seeking bling-bling atmosphere. Bear is cheap on happy hour and burgers are good. Waiters are not the most efficient.

“Ok”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 6, 2013

The bar was full of pretty young people and the food was ok mostly generic bar food, burgers and stuff not very inspirational. If I was marking as a bar it would be higher as the atmosphere was great but as this is for restaurants I couldn't go any more than 3/5, not sure how this is top 10 for food in town.

“My favorite bar in Chamonix, hands down”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 1, 2013

Monkey has something for everyone - from younger folks looking to have a fun and crazy late night, to older folks who want a quiet drink on the terrace looking up at Mont Blanc. They have great 2-for-1 drink specials and an excellent menu that is a cut above typical pub food. The Sunday roast is easily the best in France, and maybe Europe! Tourists and locals are welcomed equally, and it's the kind of place where you'll find that you are friends with the bar staff and half of the patrons before the night is through. Good live music, DJs and pub quizzes too. Monkey is my first stop every time I'm back in Chamonix!

“You will not regret a night at monkey bar!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 26, 2013

Dont let the door man throw you off, the monkey bar is the coolest place on earth! A few reasons you should enter- Power Pints, Pool Table, Unisex Bathrooms, Scandanavians, Beer Bongs, Banter, Crail Burgers and all the Bar Staff but most importantly ask for Mesh.......
