Dinner with a difference - high in the sky in Mexico

How about this for dinner with a difference? Diners are hoisted high up in the sky to enjoy aerial views of Mexico City while they eat.

The 'restaurant' is made using a 130-tonne crane and an 8-tonne platform which has a mini kitchen and seats for 22 people.

The crane lifts the special platform - which has a roof over it - up into the sky while the chefs prepare the food.

"When it's being lifted up, if you turn your head down, it can be a little scary," said diner Yuri Espinoza.

"But once you're up there, it doesn't move at all. Everything is amazing, The wine, food, the chef."

Restaurants like this first appeared in Brussels and the idea has spread to 45 other cities.

Sky dining can be experienced in Colombia, Argentina and Brazil, but this is the first time for Mexico.

"What we sell is an experience, people getting off and saying 'wow'. That thing that only unique experiences can provide," said Joan Cordoves, one of the businessmen behind the restaurant.

A new dining experience in Mexico City is offering customers a real taste of the high life.

At "Dinner in the Sky Mexico", diners are strapped into racing car seats on a platform, which is then raised 50 metres (147 feet) off the ground.

The restaurant promises soothing music, chef-prepared food and personalised service: all served alongside the thrill of eating "in the sky".

A 130-ton crane is used to lift the 8-ton platform, which supports diners and staff.

The platform has 22 seats, and diners can interact with the chef while getting a view of Mexico City's exclusive Santa Fe neighbourhood.

"When it's being lifted up, if you turn your head down, it can be a little scary," said diner Yuri Espinoza.

"But once you're up there, it doesn't move at all. Everything is amazing, The wine, food, the chef."

Prices, though, can be higher than the altitude.

Breakfasts run from 130 US dollars and dinner from 230 US dollars.
