2900 roupies for a 3-course menu is all I can remember, definitely worth it, I agree with Alexandra, it's a place you will never forget :-)

My wife and I have booked a large seaview room with terrass/balcony arriving 31 January, departing Feb.14. We booked the room already in March 2014 to celebrate my 75th birthday. We were therefore extremely disappointed to receive an E-mail from the Swedish Travel Agency 2 days agothat our booking has been changed to a French Balcony instead of terrasse and we are therfore considering to cancel our trip. Could you confirm that we will get a terrace as booked and confirmed 10 months ago. Best regards Ulla and Ingemar Stahl
