Calgary Dining

Dining in Calgary offers visitors a full range of different types of food from casual and affordable to high-end. Try out some of these restaurants for a taste of what Calgary has to offer.

No visitor should miss the opportunity to do some dining in Calgary at a place called the Bear Den. It’s a must see and a most unique venue. The rustic interior décor features carved pictures of bears along the walls. Large screen televisions feature the different species found throughout the globe. And every item on the menu relates to a bear topic. Although rustic, it’s an elegant and sophisticated eatery. The food will certainly not disappoint you either. Signature dishes include breast of duck, Bison from the ranges of Alberta, rack of lamb and buffalo. All these are creatively prepared and made to perfection. The Bear Den appetizer is large enough to feed two people. It’s described as the ideal platter to “prepare one for hibernation.” But once you eat here, you’ll want to come back, even in winter.

Another fabulous location for fine dining in Calgary is Teatro. Don’t be surprised if you see local celebrities or musicians waiting to be seated. Everyone’s heard that every entrée is an Italian delight. It’s housed inside an old bank which is historically important. It’s interior is not opulent yet attractive and chic. Among the favorites are the antipasti and carpaccios, especially of venison. For a main course, try the lasagna delicately layered with lobster and scallops.

Magazines have named Teatro as one of the best in Alberta. And among the featured dishes, the Bison spare ribs reigned supreme. They’re a good choice among all the outstanding options.
