Discover all the new restaurants

There’s a good reason to leave your packed lunch at home when you go to ZOO. Over the summer and autumn, ZOO has launched a brand new culinary experience which encompasses all four corners of the world and focuses on diversity, taste and quality.

In short: At ZOO, our mission is for you to be able to explore all types of animals and all types of food cultures, where you then go home full of knowledge and good food!

"I’m very proud of the culinary options and quality that we, within a short period of time, have put together at ZOO. Our mission has been for the new culinary options to eradicate the popular notion that the animals eat better than the visitors at ZOO. By focusing on various kinds of street food and other high-quality food concepts, we have already shown that food can play a key role at ZOO. We are now ready to hit the ground running with a wide range that hits the green zeitgeist – from burgers grilled on lava stones, gourmet hot dogs and stone-baked pita bread to delicious, organic crepes and quality coffee to go ".

Christian Higraff, commercial director
