  • "Great food, something for everyone, good happy hours on drinks, crazy parties, not enough free booze!" - Trip Advisor
  • "Nice afterski place for people not seeking bling-bling atmosphere. Bear is cheap on happy hour and burgers are good." - Trip Advisor
  • "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!" - Trip Advisor
