FAQ's (Frequently Asked Questions)
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
Things to think about as an event organiser
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…)
Can we arrange for our own catering ?
Yes you can, but if you need any assistance we will be able to assist you with some high quality catering companies.
How many chefs can cook inside the table ?
There is room for 3 chefs in the middle of the table.
Can the caterer use open fire ?
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.
What kind of food can be served on the table ?
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?
