Furious Tourists 'Charged €600 For Crabs Legs And Two Mojitos' On Holiday In Mykonos

Two American tourists were left stunned after they were charged almost €600 for crab legs and a couple of cocktails on holiday in Mykonos.

Mother and daughter Brenda and Keila Moulton were enjoying a trip of a lifetime when they decided to visit the isle’s famous Platys Gialos beach for some sun.

But their delight soon turned to distain when their light snack and two mojitos at DK Oyster cost them €598.92 (£512).

The pair were invited to sit on the restaurant’s sunbeds by a worker for the oceanfront restaurant.

Although they initially declined, Brenda claimed that the staff member was very persistent.

She said the staff member told them: “Sit here, have a drink and you will have these sunbeds at your disposal for free. It is noon, there is no problem.

They eventually settled into the deck chairs and were handed a menu but weren’t hungry so ignored the staff’s constant requests to order.

Speaking to Greek publication Thema, Brenda continued: “We were constantly asked if we wanted to order something to eat. Keila and I were not hungry, but we decided to try something from the list, hoping that they would leave us alone.”

After sitting on the loungers for two hours, the pair asked for the bill and were told they needed to go inside to pay a man at a table, who once again told Brenda to 'sit down'.

But when Brenda saw the cheque, she was forced do to do a double take as it came to almost €600 and insisted it must be 'some mistake'.

She added: “At first it was not detailed, because the paper did not show exactly what we had ordered. The guy asked me to pay almost €600 and I told him he could not, some mistake would be made.”

However, arguing the bill got Brenda nowhere as she claimed the staff member threatened to call the police on her.

She alleged the main told her: “I will call the police. They will keep you here and you will not return to your homeland.”

Feeling threatened, the mother and daughter paid the eye-watering cheque and are now warning other tourists about what had happened.

The pair have also reported the incident to police and instructed lawyers.

In light of the claims, DK Oyster, who don’t have a menu or price list on their website, insisted that 'absolutely no violations had taken place” and their staff “do not threaten' customers.

According to Thema, DK Oyster 'said everything they sell was listed in a menu and all products have legal documents'.

The restaurant added: "The customer was charged this price because the royal crab legs are not a priced item and the costing is done according to their purchase invoice."

LADBible have contacted DK Oyster for comment.
