A peaceful holiday in the sun has turned into an expensive experience for a couple of tourists who have decided to spend a few days on the enchanting island of Mykonos. What was supposed to be a light meal turned into a bewildering receipt that left the two visitors bewildered and their wallets considerably lighter.
The couple was attracted by an advertisement for a bathhouse that offered free sunbeds as long as you ordered a drink. So, the two ordered two smoothies and a lobster pasta dish.
“They were really nice and the service was really good, they made conversations with us,” Oscar, 34, told the British tabloid Mirror. “We ordered soft drinks. Just some smoothies. I didn’t ask the price, then they brought the menu. It was misleading to say the least. My boyfriend had the lobster pasta”.
However, the two did not know that the place charged the lobster by the gram: “They brought us the biggest lobster, it was a pasta but with all the part of a lobster. It was quite a bit. I thought it might cost a lot, but I never thought so much.” After consuming, here is the receipt.
“I went to pay and the guy told me the two smoothies cost 65 euros each,” Oscar said. “After which he said the total was 600 euros, plus 100 euros for the service. I was tempted to call the police, but I didn’t want to cause trouble.”
In the same place, last summer several customers had complained about hundreds of euros of bills without justification for what they ordered. “I would never recommend it,” said the hapless tourist. Or distracted, perhaps.
