A great friendly bar popular with both locals and tourists, mainly down to the amount of sport they show. We've taken our children here for a few years now when we visit Chamonix (now 8 and 10) and have always felt comfortable. The staff are really friendly - put up with my poor to non-existant French and are delighted when... More

Went there with two young lads and the boss, Charlie, was really hospitable despite it being a busy evening (Paris SG v Barcelona) and explained the deal they did on burgers and how they offer kids plain burger or cheeseburgers, as they know most don't want salad etc. Burger, chips and drink for 10 or 12 euros is good and...

Found on our way to another place and ended up staying for the evening; a couple of drinks and the best burgers ever......I'm a veggie and the veggie burger was amazing. Great atmosphere and lovely/friendly staff.

Came in this place by chance. Was greeted by a friendly staff member who seated us. Ordered our drinks, reasonable prices. Food was very well cooked, delicious!! The staff members seemed to care a lot about what we thought. Would definitely recommend

Nice bar, Stella and Leffe on tap Small selection of spirits. Bar staff is very friendly a bit on the expensive side. Monkey bar is still the place to be in Chamonix sud

You can watch football here and have just a beer in a proper hugarden glass! Enjoy the mounting view during the sun set with a glass of wine! And don't worry and be happy!

The wife and I visited this place several times over the week we were in Chamonix. It was a good low key place to have a few drinks before starting the night. Good music, good selection, super chill and Guinness on tap. And the Monkey was right next door if we wanted to take it up a notch. Pool table... More

We looked all around town for a pub which was showing our rugby match (not involving France) and charming host Claude, who was very knowledgeable about rugby, welcomed us, kept the beer flowing and offered snacks and friendly banter. Wish we had gone back but we just didn't have time. Highly recommended, cheers Claude!
