I was forced to pay £300 for CHILD’S meal at rip-off Mykonos restaurant after waiter’s sneaky tactic – I’m fuming | The Sun

A FURIOUS dad has lashed out at a "rip off" restaurant after his daughter was allegedly charged nearly £300 for a single meal.

Tripadvisor reviewer, Kyle B, was visiting the Greek island of Mykonos when he visited restaurant, DK Oyster.

The beachside bar on the island's stunning Platis Gialos has a reputation for staggering prices and has been accused of scamming tourists.

It has hundreds of one-star reviews on TripAdvisor, but has previously furiously defended its pricing and service.

Kyle shared he visited DK Oyster last week and posted his negative review, warning fellow holidaymakers to "beware".

He claimed he was with his daughter who ordered a lobster pasta – but was staggered when he received the bill for nearly £300.

The reviewer alleged the waiter sold his daughter the pasta while he was in the water at the beachside bar.

When he got out of the water, he asked how much it was and claimed he was told 30 euros.

But when he received the bill the total for everything they ordered was 500 euros – with the lobster being 350 euros.

He claimed – like many other angry customers – that was caught out by the restaurant charging "by gram" for their meals.

"Shame on me for not reading the reviews about this place first — or letting my kid order a meal on holiday at the beach," he wrote.

The dad added: "Happy to pay any amount of it is upfront and honest and a true choice is involved. They don’t provide it here."

His experience is echoed by hundreds of other customers, with DK Oyster having a 2.5 star rating on TripAdvisor from 1,464 reviews as of publication.

The bar has 578 one star, 32 two star, 19 three star, 52 four star, and 337 five star reviews.

Furious customers blasted the restaurant as the "worst experience ever" and accused them of being a "scam".

Some ratings from the last few days include one punter moaning they were charged 35 euros for a Diet Coke, and another claiming two glasses of wine and two appetisers cost them 400 euros.

And another customer blasted them as "absolutely disgusting an absolute rip off" and another raged they were charged nearly 1000 euros for their drinks, snacks and a cigar.

However, other customers were more positive – praising the restaurant's setting and saying "prices are good for the high class restaurant it is".


Another positive punter wrote the food and drinks were "worth every penny".

DK Oyster has a reputation for high prices – and was recently fined £25,000 after an audit by Cyclades Regional Tourism Agency, reports Protothema and the Greek City Times.

The investigation was sparked by two Americans who claimed they were charged more than £500 for a pair of mojitos and some crab legs.

And previously, the restaurant has defended its prices, saying "we have carefully accounted for the cost in order to produce a product which we consider to be value for money" and denied any aggressive behaviour from staff.

Angry customers however have even set up a dedicated website – DKOysterScam.com – to warn other tourists and share their experiences.

And meanwhile, The Sun Online spoke to angry holidaymaker Jak Kypri who revealed he was charged £360 for four drinks and a snack at DK Oyster

Jak ordered two tequilas, two beers, and some shrimp which, when it arrived, was just "six prawns".

"They became aggressive and started crowding around me when I questioned the astronomic and unjustified prices," he said.

"I thought, I'm an 18-stone guy, I speak Greek, I won't be intimidated."
