A group of US tourists were left outraged after being presented with a $935 bill for a modest lunch of calamari and beers in Greece.
One of the diners, from Brooklyn, revealed how staff at the DK Oyster restaurant in Mykonos refused to give their party a menu or show them prices, before surprising them with the final tab.
The charges included $661.41 for six plates of calamari – $110.24 per plate – and $167.87 for six beers at $27.97 per drink.

Also on the bill were three Caesar salads which came to a total of $66.46, two bottles of water for $20.14 and a single tomato juice for the same amount.
Posting an image of the bill on Tripadvisor, user Ciscorock wrote: ‘Avoid this place, this place is a trap.
‘They charged us 830 euros for calamari, 6 beers and 3 salads. The staff is not honest and refuse to provide a menu and prices.
‘Avoid this place at all costs! No pun intended.’
The restaurant, located on the south of the island near Platis Gialos Beach, is generally well-reviewed, and holds an overall four-star rating.

But there have been a string of recent reviews in which people have posted images of their bills along with claims of being ripped off.
One bill shows the customer was charged $16 for a single Sprite, while another was hit by a $365 charge for a single dish – a Tomahawk USA steak.
Others complained that they were not even given bills, while some said the staff had been rude and abusive.
