Restaurants and Dining
There are a number of good mountain restaurants on the slopes down from Alpe d'Huez, as well as a couple closer to Oz.
At the intersection of the pistes at the Alpette you'll find P'Oz Chez Passoud, a brasserie and snack bar with stunning views over the surrounding ski area. They serve a wide range of typical local and international dishes to warm you up before you get back out on the mountain, from gratin dauphinois to soups and hamburgers.
Close by you'll also find the Auberge de l'Alpette, a cosy, family-friendly restaurant and bar offering a winning mix of traditional cuisine, beautiful views and welcoming staff.
After coming down in the scenic Combe du Poutran, Le Perce Neige is a great place to warm up by the fire or bask in the sun out on the terrace, depending on the weather! They serve up delicious regional specialities, including andouilettes, gâteau perce-neige and profiterolles.
Restaurants in Town
There's a small selection of fantastic restaurants in Oz itself, dotted around the central street. Most of these serve local Savoyard cuisine, but you can also find a couple of good international options if you're looking for something different.
At the foot of the pistes and accessible either on skis or by foot, Restaurant La Ferme d'Oz at the Chalet des Neiges (+33 476 11 05 49) has a cute alpine interior and two large south-west facing terraces. Serving crepes and much-loved mountain specialities such as fondue, raclette and tartiflette as well as a few special house dishes, this is a great place to meet friends for a meal on a sunny afternoon or a chilly evening.
Being a small village, the majority of the grocery shops are traditional French delis and boulangeries. L'Atre d'Oz (+33 607 32 30 58) sells freshly baked artisan bread, pastries, tarts and quiches, whilst Le Habert (+33 476 79 52 58) stocks a range of regional products, including cheeses and charcuterie, souvenirs and delectable gifts to take back. There's also a Sherpa supermarket (+336 07 32 30 58) in the heart of the resort, selling the essentials to make your stay comfortable as well as regional food products, take-away pizzas, fire wood, snow chains and stamps.
