La Villa in the Sky - Gastronomic restaurant 1 star - Alexandre Dionisio

La Villa in the Sky

After the success of the C Expérience pop-up restaurant on the roof of the IT Tower, a major landmark on the Brussels landscape, the Villa Lorraine and Alexandre Dionisio have moved in and opened a new restaurant: La Villa in the Sky.

A dizzying and vertiginous culinary experience as the restaurant is more than 120 metres up in the air perched on top of a contemporary black and white glass structure. The views will take your breath away both at lunchtime when a panorama of the whole of the city opens before you and in the evening when you have your head in the stars.

Orchestrating your culinary delights is the Michelin-starred chef Alexandre Dionisio whose superlative menus made with fresh seasonal products are the fruit of his exceptional spontaneous inspiration.

Your reception at La Villa in the Sky reflects the overall elegance of the culinary experience and includes a valet service and a hostess who will accompany you personally to your rooftop table at the top of the IT Tower.

La Villa in the Sky - Gastronomic restaurant 1 star - Alexandre Dionisio
Alexandre started working in the kitchens of the Passage at the age of 15. Between 1997 and 2003, he learned the basics of cooking from the chef Rocky Renaud. He then started his apprenticeship and rapidly rose up the ladder until he became a sous-chef. He even tried his hand at pâtisserie.

In 2003, he needed a change of air and kitchen. So, he went back to go working as a commis de cuisine under the chef Pierre Wynants at Comme chez Soi, who taught him the importance of being rigorous and honouring the products he worked with. He went on to specialise in meat, game and sauces and became the ‘chef rôtisseur’.

In 2008 when Yves Mattagne hired him as junior sous-chef at the Sea Grill where he acquired a more in-depth understanding and knowledge about how to cook fish and present it with aesthetic flair.

These three major names in the world of gastronomic cuisine shaped his cooking style that he describes as classic with a twist that is influenced by his Spanish origins. He likes to work with simple products and bring out their special qualities whilst developing his creativity.
Key words for Alexandre are regularity, rigour and an attention to detail. He likes to set himself challenges and is constantly rethinking things so that his cooking and creativity are in a state of constant evolution.

In 2011, he opened his own restaurant and six months later, received his first star in the Guide Michelin. In 2013 Gault & Millau named Alexandre ‘best young chef in Brussels’.

At the end of 2014, Alexandre embarked on a new culinary adventure with Serge Litvine, the owner of the Villa Lorraine. Alexandre will be creating, orchestrating and cooking culinary creations as chef of La Villa in the Sky on the rooftop of the IT Tower, Avenue Louise. In 2015, the Michelin Guide awarded him a 2nd star .
