A portion of calamari is apparently made of gold, therefore it is offered by a restaurant at the beach of Platis Gialos on the island of Mykonos at a price of 98.5 euros. An outrage US tourist from Brooklyn, New York, who visited the restaurant in May 2019, posted on website tripadvisor the exorbitant bill of proud €836,20 for 6 portions of calamari, 6 beers, 3 salads and a tomato juice at the unreal price of 18 euros.
The tourist posted also a picture of the bill.
Ciscorock’s post triggered a series of comments by other visitors of said restaurant who also complained about the prices and posted pictures of their bills.
Posted by Jordan M who visited the restaurant also in the same month. He complained about “very extortionate drink prices” as he paid €15 for a Sprite soda and €10 for a double Greek coffee, 25 euros in total.
Other tourists complained also about the prices like €9.80 for a portion of tzatziki-cucumber-garlic sauce and €20 for a portion of traditional Greek moussakas.
A glass of prosecco at 68euros?
Many tourists lashed out at the “highly overpriced” facility and described it as a “scam.”
The manager of the facility dismissed the claims saying that all customers receive the menu with the prices on it. Worth noting that the manager did not answered the comments with his or her name but with a pseudonym “PSST+several numbers.”
It should also mentioned that on the tripadvisor presentation of the specific restaurant the price range is given between €40-€200.
