Reservations won't come cheap, but Vancouver foodies may soon be able to take the concept of dining with a view to new heights.

"Dinner in the Sky" is a touring dining experience scheduled to be available in Vancouver from July 1 to July 31.

Diners gather around a bar-type table, and are strapped into seats surrounding "sky chefs." The entire platform containing the table, which doubles as a counter for staff, is then lifted more than 45 metres (150 feet) off the ground by a crane.

Organizer and Vancouver businessman Jhordan Stevenson said he is confident the concept will fly, although the event has not been approved by the City of Vancouver, and no permits have been granted.

"It's permanently in Las Vegas. They have it in New York, they have it in Toronto… I thought our city would benefit," Stevenson told CTV News' Rena Heer.

According to, there has never been a safety incident in its 10 years of operation.

Up to 22 foodies at a time eat their meals -- made of "only first-class ingredients," the website says -- suspended over the city's skyline. There is no restroom, and guests are encouraged to use the facilities on the ground before getting on the platform.

"We will lower the platform half way through the service to allow any bathroom breaks," the website says. However, if a customer asks, staff are willing to lower the platform before the break.

Dinner in the Sky began in Belgium, and has since been served up in 40 counties.

Tickets range from $249 for brunch or "basic lunch" to $799 for an "early bird first class VIP" meal, and can be purchased on the company's website. The website says 500 early bird tickets will be available at the prices currently listed, which it says are 15 per cent lower than the full-priced tickets.

For the $249 lunch, guests get a two-course meal, "premium starter," a glass of champagne and juice or soft drinks. Those who pay the same price for brunch get a second class of champagne and brunch canapes.

Those willing to shell out $800 for the "ultimate experience" get a five-course meal, raw bar and premium starter, caviar, canapes, unlimited champagne and wine, a photo to take home, pickup service, priority check-in and check-out, and "VIP seating."

Should the necessary permits not be approved by the city, the tickets will be refunded, Stevenson said.
