The whole area has about half a dozen mountain restaurants. The value-for-money Prariond has a good atmosphere, and the Altipano at the top of the gondola has an excellent terrace to complement its menu. If you're over by Lauziere, try the Banquise, and if you're at Lanchettes go for L'Arbet. On the whole the food found on the mountain doesn't really live up to the views. In the resort there's something for most tastes: the Grenier in Mottet scores highly, as does the Petit Savoyarde.
As the last of the sun disappears, the terraces of the bars of Bourg Morel and Le Grenier get seriously packed. Head to the main street once the sun has gone to find the best bars in the resort. If you're looking for some quiet cocktails, Le Shaker bar in hotel La Fontaine is the place to try. ESF have made Café de la Gare their favourite haunt and there's live music most nights. Perce Neige has a lively atmosphere, as do the Casbah and Petit Prince. The resort only boasts one nightclub – Jeans – at which you can carry on carrying on until the early hours.
There are mountain trails to follow and a couple of churches to view, but failing that you are restricted to soaking up the sun on the café terraces. There's lift access to a couple of mountain restaurants so you can meet up with friends at lunch. There's snowshoeing, sleigh rides and a cinema, but it's pretty quiet otherwise.
