Italian restaurant and bakery, Bread and Wine has announced the closure of its services to the general public at the end of March 2016 over what its says are exorbitant electricity bills.

In a Facebook post on Wednesday, the company said: "Dear friends and clients, after receiving couple of electricity ECG bills, 30,000 Ghc/month (7,000 Euros/month), we are sorry to announce that Bread&Wine will close its doors at the end of March 2016.

"We tried to explain to ECG that we are only using our ACs during lunch and diner time, therefore that consumption of electricity is impossible. Their answer was "if you are not happy, go back to your country".

"So it is with a great sadness but a lot of fantastic memories that we took the decision to close down our venue. We would like to thanks all of you for being part of our adventure and we hope to see you coming before the final closing."
