“Veggie Heaven!”
5 of 5 bubbles Review of Papillon - CLOSED

Papillon
Cuisines: International
More restaurant details
Restaurant details
Dining options: Lunch, Dinner, Takeout
Description: Papillon is now closed at this address. Tripadvisor won't remove our listing for reasons they prefer to keep to themselves. Perhaps they too hope we'll re-open?! Anyway, a big thankyou to all of our lovely customers! We've started a new speciality coffee roastery in Chamonix called Cafes Moody - we'll be selling our freshly roasted beans, brewed coffee drinks and accessories at the Chamonix market on Saturdays - hope to see you all there soon!

“Veggie Heaven!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 May 2014

Thanks for being in Chamonix! It's hard to fight the temptation to eat here more often than i already do...Your sweet potato curry is one of my favourite things to eat - ever! Service is brilliant and even if i only come in for one thing i always end up with a bag of goodies that i can't get anywhere else. Love it. Go to Papillon.

“Our favourite Eatery”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 April 2014

Papillon is everything Chamonix needs. Awesome, healthy and friendly and Vegan/Vegetarian/GF to boot. (It's nice to see something labelled Veg in France that doesn't contain anchovies!!) From someone who has grown to detest savoyard food with a passion Papillon is light and fresh! My boyfriend and I eat here at least once a week, we love the service and the whole feel of the place. The sweet potato curry is pretty much the best thing ever along with the shanghai beef. I wish they had a restaurant - or maybe I don't - because we would never eat at home again. Oh and try the cupcakes - they are fantastic and always different. Anyone who doesn't like this place should be given a wide berth :)

“Best price/quality take away ever”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 April 2014

There should be a place like this in every city. This is a healthy take away made with fresh veggies and ingredients and very tasty all around! Been there 2 times in 2 days and would go there again if i ever go back to Chamonix!

“Amazing!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 March 2014

Vegetarians and non-vegetarians in our group absolutely LOVED the food at Papillon. Couple that with terrific service and an ultra hip vibe and it's no wonder we got food here on numerous occasions and we weren't the only ones, the staff there knew many if the people on a first name basis. I still dream about the sweet potato curry - it was divine. This place is not to be missed!

“THE # 1 Fresh Food takeaway in Chamonix”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 March 2014

This is not your ordinary takeaway place. The food is top notch, and we ended up going there several times during our stay. The service is perfect: Efficient, people are smiling and really enjoying what they are doing, and the food is freshlymade while you wait. The Shanghai beef is a winner, and the Sweet potato yellow curry is very good, even for someone who loves meat. The house wine is a steal at only 7euros. The salads are a meal in itself, mix as you wish. Even the cupcakes are good. Whatever you order, it will taste divine without clearing your wallet. Open from 11-20:00.
