There are several restaurants in and around Les Carroz, offering a range of traditional Savoyard food, typical French cuisine, or merely snacks. During the high season, it is advised that tables are booked a day in advance, as they do get very popular. Restaurants of note include the Bois de la Char, with its good management, ideal location and great value, and the British run Hotel Belles Pistes, with its great staff, food and proximity to lifts. On the slopes themselves, there are fewer restaurants, but where they do exist, they generally have a good reputation, and offer good value food, with the Cupress offering good table service.
Les Carroz may not be as active or party-orientated as other resorts, but there are cafes, bars and clubs for all ages, all within 10 minutes walk of the centre. Whether relaxing with a vin chaud, coffee or beer for a family drink in a café, or a more music orientated night, there will be something in the village for you.
Village life centres on the square, with its cafes, restaurants, village shops, food specialists, boutiques, and cinema. The ski school's descent is a great event, and culminates with vin chaud and live jazz performances in the square.
The regular free shuttle bus service also runs to Flaine, and gives access to the larger town and its slopes. Here snow-mobiling, dog-sledding, swimming and ice-driving is available, whilst Les Carroz itself offers some outdoor ice-skating.
