A TOURIST was left stunned after being charged almost €600 (£510) for just two drinks and snacks while on holiday in Greece.
The woman, who was on holiday with her 19-year-old daughter, was stunned by the price as they ate at a restaurant on Mykonos island.
The couple had ordered two cocktails and a portion of crab legs, sitting in some lounge chairs for a few hours.
She said when she complained to her travel agent: “We spent a lovely day at the beach but please warn your future customers that the restaurant bar we visited charged us €600 for two cocktails and a portion of crab legs.” calculated.
“While we knew the bill wouldn’t exceed €200, suddenly they charged us €600!”
The receipt showed the couple had been charged €520 with a tip of €78.
She said they refused to pay, only for the men at the restaurant to stop them from leaving.
She added that the only “extra thing” was that they had used some lounge chairs for three hours – but didn’t see how they could cost them that much.
The mother also said she would file a police report after being told by locals that this had been happening all along.
Unfortunately, this isn’t the first time tourists have been caught on vacation.
In 2019, a tourist in Greece was furious after being charged €591 (£503) for just six pieces of calamari at a restaurant in Mykonos.
In the same year, a group of British tourists were charged €82 (£70) for just eight soft drinks after visiting a restaurant in Rhodes.
It’s also happening elsewhere in Europe, with holidaymakers in Italy facing similar problems.
Two tourists slammed a “disgusting” restaurant in Rome after being charged €429 (£381) for their meal of spaghetti and fish.
And another restaurant in Rome has been slammed after reportedly charging diners £70 for two burgers and three coffees.
