Pic by Leyla HesnaDinner on a lake is a concept created by Friends & Fools, a company founded by two young men of only 23 years old: Angelo Medagoda & Gustave Lorré. The two young entrepreneurs starting playing with the idea how cool it would be to be able to built your own raft. This idea quickly evolved in the concept Camp On A Lake: you build your own raft in the shape you prefer on which you can afterwards camp and barbecue. They even found a way to make the whole system mobile: you can pick out your favorite lake to camp on! So simple yet unique. The perfect activity for a teambuilding activity, bachelor party,… You name it!


The concept proved to be successful and the boys were able to invest in their own offices, all the building materials and their own boat. But they don’t want to stop here. The boys have many more plans with their rafts. This is how Dinner On A Lake was born: a new and unique food concept. As the name suggests, you will be able to enjoy an exclusive lunch or dinner, floating on their rafts in the middle of a lake.
