Food prices have risen but if you don’t turn up to eat any, it’ll cost you a pretty penny from now on.

You don’t always get what you pay for, it seems. The world famous Theatercafe in Oslo has announced all bookings not cancelled by 12:00 the day before will incur a fine of up to 350 kroner per person, depending if it was lunch or supper/dinner you didn’t come and sing for.

According to Dagens Næringsliv the café has not escaped the effects of the global economic crisis, with the weeks leading up to Christmas accounting for almost half its annual income.

“It’s a hectic period and people are queuing up to get a table. Many reserve a table for ten persons but arrive with only six, still expecting to get the same table,” says Ulf Østenius, the café’s general manager tells the paper.
