Prime Minister David Cameron has made a "brief" pitch to his colleagues in the European Union about plans to reform the UK's deal.
He had hoped to use tonight's meal during the two-day summit in Brussels to pave the way for formal discussions, which have now officially entered their 'technical' stage.
ITV News deputy political correspondent Chris Ship tweeted:
Cameron has made his pitch to his EU counterparts. No10 say it was 'brief' after a v long conversation about migrants at dinner
At some point over dinner tonight, the Prime Minister will address leaders of the 27 other EU nations today for the first time in a bid to kick-start formal talks on on reform of Britain's membership.
He called it a "significant milestone" but other leaders were focused on the migrant crisis and Greece on the brink of default.
Cameron wants to restrict EU migrant benefits, an opt-out of the founding principle 'ever closer union' and protection for the UK being overruled by euro-currency member states.
