DITS 2.0

Dinner in the sky 2.0

DITS 2.0, has a larger, more open central kitchen so that the chefs can be in direct contact with all guests.
Also, eight tables for four people set around the open kitchen makes it possible to seat 32 guests in greater privacy.
Reservations can already be made for two or four people.

Companies no longer need to privatise the whole structure for their business events.
You can privatise one, two, three or... tables for four people or choose to privatise all eight tables (32 seats) for a magical experience.

Dinner in the Sky will take over the skies of the Lion’s Mound (Rte du Lion, 1420 Braine-l'Alleud) and will welcome 25 of the finest Belgian Chefs behind the stove.

Each day the chefs will treat 32 guests to a delicious lunch and 2 dinners high in the Belgians’ sky.

The event will take place from the 1st to the 29th of June 2023.

about our history

This is a surrealist story of the kind Belgium loves so much

This is a surrealist story of the kind Belgium loves so much. 15 years ago, The Fungroup, a company specialised in amusement park installations deploying cranes and Hakuna Matata, a communications agency specialised in gourmet pleasures joined forces and made a child’s dream come true: a flying dinner table baptised the Dinner in the Sky (www.dinnerinthesky.com) which served as the venue for 22 Young European Restaurant Owners to don their white chef’s hat.

15 years later, Dinner in the Sky has criss-crossed the skies of more than 60 countries… In Europe, to be sure, but also in Australia, India, Dubai, South Africa, Brazil, the United States, Canada, Japan, Colombia and Mexico.

Over the course of the past five years, we have arranged some incredible dinners. We can cite, for example, the dinner organised in the skies over Monaco for Prince Albert with France’s most highly ‘starred’ chef,’ Joel Robuchon, in command. But there were also more than 1,000 events in cities ranging from Paris to Las Vegas, as well as Sydney, Cape Town, London and Sao Paulo. All these events were unique, one of a kind.

The most glittering stars of gastronomy took their place behind our stoves: from Pierre Gagnaire to Marc Veyrat, from Yves Mattagne to Sergio Herman, from Dani Garcia to Paco Roncero, not to mention Alain Passard and Yannick Alleno,…

We flew over the most magical places imaginable: the Strip of Vegas, the gardens of the King David Hotel, the Marina of Dubai, the hills of the Villa Borghese, the Spa Francorchamps race track, the banks of the St. Lawrence River, the beach of the Copacabana, the bay of Cape Town…

The world’s leading media showed their interest in the concept: ABC, NBC, TF1… the Herald Tribune, Le Monde, the Frankfurter Allgemeine… People Magazine, Elle, Forbes… World renowned celebrities took their place at the dinner tables: the Prince of Sweden, Fuji TV host from Japan Hiromi Iwasaki, the Mayor of Las Vegas Oscar B. Goodman…
