Calgary Zoo Inspired Dino Dining RestaurantsIf you love dinosaurs, you will enjoy some of the coolest dino-dining experiences found throughout Calgary. There are plenty to choose from and it all starts with a trip to the Calgary Zoo.

At the zoo, you can enjoy the Prehistoric Park, which has recently re-opened and it's better than it has ever been before. You will be able to take in the Dinosaurs Alive exhibit, along with enjoying 26 life-sized models. Some of the models even move and vocalize. You can turn it into a day by enjoying one of the dinosaur-related dining choices nearby, as well.

Dine with the style of a herbivorous Omeisauris with the Tazza Deli and Grill dishes. You will find all types of leafy greens here with grape leaves, pita sandwiches, halloum cheese, falafel and so much more. Try the veggie platter, if you want to really eat like a herbivorous Omeisaurus.
