“Zoos can be a depressing thing; not our zoo. It’s a good place if considered life in captivity is ok at all. But if being a zoo animal its probably the best worldwide! Great with kids. Don’t miss the Masoala hall. ”

Restaurant
“Probably Seefelder's favorite restaurant, this tiny, quirky bolt-hole offers up pizza, pasta and other comfort-food in a cosy ambiance. My recommendation, however, is the cordon bleu, which is simply the best I've had anywhere. There are only about 40 seats inside (and a 3 shared tables on the sidewalk outside in the summer), so plan ahead and book a few days in advance. Closed on Saturdays (I know...)”

“One of the city's most popular Japanese spots, featuring a running sushi bar serving up eclectic sushi. It's expensive, but there's a reason it's always full -- it's very good. There is also a small dining room at the back featuring traditional tables and cooked Japanese fare, including delightful tempura dishes. Sidewalk café in the summer.”
