I was charged £450 on holiday for two cocktails & disgusting calamari – the manager laughed in my face when I complained | The Sun

A FUMING tourist has slammed a notorious "rip-off" restaurant in Mykonos after she received an eye-watering bill of £450.

Amber Pace, 25, vowed never to return to the popular holiday island in Greece after her pricey visit to DK Oyster.

The assistant manager from New York was island hopping in Greece in May, visiting Santorini, Crete and Mykonos with her friend Aubrey.

The pair decided to spend the day at the restaurant, unaware that the venue has been accused of ripping off tourists.

After ordering two drinks and two appetisers, the two pals could not believe they were hit with the staggering bill of £450 (€520).

Amber told The Sun: "I just saw the price £17 (€20) for the fried calamari I got and my friend got the king crab legs that said €32.

"I told our server three times 'please make sure it is the £27.5 (€20) one, I don’t want anything more than that' and he kept saying he understood.

"We got our food and it was disgusting. Even before we knew the prices.

"My fried calamari was rubbery and had no flavour, and my friend's crab legs were super salty. 

"Our server gave us a paper receipt that said £85 (€98) for fried calamari and £160 (€185) for king crab legs. We nearly lost it."

After finding the Platys Gialos beach online, the pair decided to go for a swim at the popular beach on May 7.

The two pals ended up at DK Oyster after they were informed the sunbeds are free with the purchase of a drink.

Amber said: "We decided that was a great deal considering we planned on drinking anyway. 

"My friend ordered a Pina Colada and I ordered a Strawberry Daiquiri.

"We were not given a drink menu, the server was just naming out drinks without telling us the prices."

Later in the day, Amber and Aubrey decided to order some food but did not understand the menu that stated the prices were "by the pound."

Despite trying to speak to staff, Amber says that the waiter insisted that what they had ordered was at least four pounds.

The two friends eventually received a sky-high bill of £450 (€520) for the two cocktails, two appetisers, and a 10 per cent service fee.

Furious, they decided to return to the venue the following day and speak to the manager.

But they were left disappointed claiming the manager dismissed their complaint and blamed them for not paying attention to the menu.

Amber added: "He was downright rude, and shrugged it off like he’s been having these issues before so it didn’t phase him. 

"He basically told us it was our fault for not reading the menu properly. He laughed in our face and did not do anything about it.

"Horrible experience and that place gives Mykonos a bad name. We looked the place up after everything and it has warning flags on all travel websites because they’re known for ripping tourists off horribly.

"I never want to step foot in Mykonos again because of that experience."

DK Oyster has been contacted for a comment.

In June a couple was livid after they were charged £600 for two smoothies and a bowl of pasta.

Oscar Maldonado and his boyfriend said the pasta "wasn't that bad", but definitely not worth the painful £344 bill they were slapped with when they'd finished.

Another holidaymaker revealed how he was charged £360 for four drinks and a snack at the same restaurant.
