A Belgian success story in the skies of more than 40 countries

Dinner In The SkyThis is a surrealist story of the kind Belgium loves so much. In May 2006, Hakuna Matata, a communications agency specialized in gourmet pleasures, and The Fun Group, a company specialized in amusement park installations deploying cranes, joined forces and made a child’s dream come true: a flying dinner table baptized the Dinner in the Sky (dinnerinthesky.com) which served as the venue for 22 Young European Restaurant Owners to don their white chef’s hat. Over the past years, Dinner in the Sky has criss-crossed the skies of 45 countries… In Europe, to be sure, but also in Australia, Japan, India, Dubaï, South-Africa, Brazil, United States, Mexico, Canada… and China.


It’s like in a normal restaurant: you ask where they are to the waiter and… you go down. It’s just a bit less discrete because the whole table goes down but it takes less than a minute


As an organizer you will need to arrange for: Event location 30 x 15 meters accessible for both crane & truck with trailer. If you can’t find a good venue please contact us we can assist you in this. 90 meters of steel barriers to secure the area for Dinner in the Sky.


Catering is not included, the budget will depend on your wishes (how do you plan your 8 hours: 1 VIP dinner or several half an hour tastings/cocktails sessions or…, which type of food do you want to offer to your guests…)


Yes you can, but if you need any assistance we will be able to assist you with some high quality catering companies.


There is room for 3 chefs in the middle of the table.


No this is not allowed due to fire & Safety regulations. But it’s possible to have electricity on the table in order to use electrical devices. Gas-barbecue may also be used.


There are no fixed menus. Our clients have been serving from sushi to lobster, from tapas to gastronomic dinner… so it really depends on the catering company and the available budget.


How many people can sit around the table? Dinner in the Sky can seat a maximum of 22 people per session.
How many sessions can you organise during 8 hours? Depending on the activities you want to organise we think that 1 hour per session is ideal, so you can do around 7 sessions in one day. But if it’s just a tasting or a cocktail, you can imagine half an hour sessions.


Dinner in the sky is not age related but height related, we need to be able to secure you safely in your seat, minimum height is 150 cm
