Couple 'Wanted To Call Police' After Having A Meal Then Checking Bill In Mykonos

Oh that was crazy!!

Couple wanted to call police in Mykonos after checking bill

Everyone is aware that there are unforeseen expenses associated with traveling overseas.

Oscar Maldonado and his partner took a luxurious vacation to the Greek island of Mykonos last year, where they made a lavish dinner reservation at the waterfront eatery DK Oyster.

In an interview with The Mirror, the pair disclosed that they had placed their own orders for two smoothies and lobster pasta without consulting the menu.

But when the bill arrived, it showed that their lunch had actually cost €599.82 (£508) in total, with a service charge accounting for almost one hundred euros of that amount.

The couple confronted the waiter about the final cost of the bill, understandably shocked by its crazy amount, only to be informed that it was a "service fee."

"I felt tempted to call the police, but I didn't want to cause any trouble. I said 'How do you calculate this?' He just went on a rant repeating 'service fee'," Oscar said.

He continued: "I just paid and left. I was p***ed off for the rest of the day and it almost ruined my holiday. I would never go there. I would never recommend it.

"I really wasn't expecting it."

Oscar went on to note that although the restaurant's service was "really good," the menu was "misleading to say the least."

The restaurant now has a two-star rating on TripAdvisor, so it's clear that the couple isn't the only one who has been disappointed with DK Oyster.

Reviews frequently draw attention to how pricey the meal and drink options are; one customer claimed to have paid "€120 for two drinks," while another said the restaurant charged "35 euros for a Coke Zero."

Dimitrios Kalamaras, DK Oyster's manager, previously told The Sun: "Our sunbeds require minimum consumption, so we encourage all visitors to check the menus before placing their orders.

"I would like to note that our menus are displayed on blackboards near the entrance, showing the prices of our food and drinks to keep our guests informed."

He added: "In DK Oyster, we have advertised in the ways we consider suitable for our restaurant, and we will not succumb to the influencers who have been attracted to the beautiful island of Mykonos.

"We believe that the value of the offered experience is high and we have no intention to explain why we charge more than a supermarket or a traditional taverna, which can be quite wonderful but is surely a completely different concept than ours."
