Monkey Restaurant, Chamonix - Centre

Restaurant & bar, close to the Aiguille du Midi lift in the heart of Cham Sud

Featured in: | Updated

Since 2005, Monkey has prided itself on bringing together delicious food and drinks, from breakfast and brunch through to lunch and dinner. With a friendly, laidback style to enjoy every day of the year.

A firm favourite with locals and tourists alike, the Monkey restaurant has earned itself a reputation for good honest food, delicious specials, a friendly atmosphere and great prices. Open all day and all year round you will never be disappointed if you turn up at the door looking for a feed. From breakfast, brunch, lunch, apres-ski snacks and dinner there is something for everyone!

Their menus are regularly updated with new treats and you'll always find something you're looking for, with a fantastic selection of Mexican-inspired cuisine, including feel-good burgers, burritos, tacos, tapas, comidas and salad bowls. There are also plenty of vegetarian and vegan choices on offer. For more about their various menus and delicious food offerings check out our Restaurant Reviews where we enjoyed the Monkey Restaurant Brunch and some of the best lunchtime burgers in town.

Behind the bar they've got a selection of lagers, ales and craft beer from around the world and a whole host of cocktails – many of them tequila or mezcal-based – to choose from. If you fancy something non-alcoholic, they've got a great selection of softs & coffees to choose from.

They've also got regular parties and events on year round, from live music to DJ sets, pub quizzes and jazzy brunches so keep an eye on our events calendar for the latest in what's on. Their food and drink offers are also legendary around town, especially their €10 cocktail and beer jugs on Monday nights.

The Neighbourhood

The Cham Sud area is a popular pedestrianised square with several bars, restaurants, cafes and ski shops. Due to the large number of apartments for locals and tourists you will find this is always a busy place with a good friendly atmosphere.

The Bar

If you are looking for a quiet afternoon coffee or a lively apres-ski drink then the Monkey Bar is the place to go!
