We went for lunch. Food is great for the price, Mexican-inspired (example: the falafel "burrito" is actually more like a wrap - a cold one - but with Mexican flavour), and casual, cozy atmosphere. It was kind of freezing, though, which made it hard to enjoy the meal (we were all wearing our winter jackets inside. It was COLD.). Service... More

Hi Lucusekali, Thanks for your review and glad you enjoyed the food. Sincerest apologies for the temperature. Our under floor heating system recently stopped working and it takes an hour or so for the establishment to heat up by the windows at lunch time We are in the process of installing a heating solution which should be done by the...

My partner and I recently had dinner at monkey. A simple menu of tacos, burritos and starters. It is more then enough. The tacos were great and the cod burritos was really enjoyable. Highly recommend

Monkey magic indeed! 3 days in Chamonix, 2 meals in Monkey says it all! Great staff, fantastic food - Mexican themed. Chamonix is pricey, Monkey is reasonable. Always busy when we arrived but always able to fit us in (3 of us). Prompt service with a smile. Food very fresh, very tasty and spicy as you want. Big shout out... More

Came here to get a quick dinner. They quickly fitted in 11 of us and we ordered bar food which was a good price and good value for money. Well worth a visit

the location is nice (in a quiet square), the food is good (the home made falafels are just spicy enough, perfect), the salad is good and the staff is very pleasant and helpful.

It is a little difficult to find the restaurant as it is on a little square behind the main road. It is truly a hidden gem, with the best burgers, wraps, tacos etc. Plenty of choice for vegetarians as well. Super friendly staff, highly recommended, even if it is just for a drink.
