Fuming restaurant slams Brits’ TripAdvisor review complaining of ‘£50 lemonade’

A restaurant has been left fuming, slamming a British tourist's TripAdvisor review where they complained over an alleged "£50 lemonade".

Charlotte (no surname was given) took to the review site to urge others to avoid DK Oyster, on the Greek island of Mykonos, BirminghamLive reports.

She said: "Avoid this restaurant like the plague. Tell everyone you know not to go there, they ruined our last day in Mykonos. Mykonos is expensive, we know that. We happily pay for quality – when you have a great meal and drinks it is fine to pay for VALUE.

"However places like this, instead try to use tricks and deceit to take money from customers who work hard and want to spend their hard earned cash on something worth while. These people have no morals and frankly shouldn’t be able to sleep at night stealing peoples money."

She explained the events, stating how when she arrived with her party, they were told the sunbeds were free as long as they spent €25 (£21) per person on food and drinks.

She quipped: "Not too bad we thought and sat down. When we arrived immediately we were pressured to order, we went for a water and lemonade as it was early and planned to spend the whole day there anyways there was no rush.

"The lemonade came and it was undrinkable. So bitter (and we always order fresh lemonade so we know what good tastes like)."

Charlotte added how the staff continued to pester them and telling them that they "needed to take their order", which irritated her as she had gone to the beach to "relax".

When they did eventually have lunch, they decided to go for a €25 (£21) club sandwich which the angry Brit described as "average", before adding that the "whole menu was extortionate pricing".

Charlotte continued: "They failed to tell us we couldn’t even go in the sea that day due to a sewage leak, we had to overhear another kind waitress informing guests before they sat down. We were never treated with such respect!"

She finished her review exclaiming at the extortionate price of a lemonade, stating: "When we came to pay, they charged €58 (£49) for the lemonade. On what planet is that acceptable?"

The restaurant however did not take the review lightly and decided to hit back, stating: "I am happy to read reviews with substantial information about the factors that pleased or displeased a customer, but in your case all I see is a person who keeps talking about 'hard earned money' and does not want to pay for the price of the services and products provided by other hard working people.

"Your money is hard earned but we are… stealing yours. What a superficial way to view the work of others!

"There is no illegal action described, yet you request the authorities (through TripAdvisor!!!) to shut down a legitimate business: 'it should be removed from the beach' you demand with the title of your review.

"You also claim that waiters informed other customers regarding the accident on the beach, but not you. They did not like you in particular? Why would that be? In the context of your review I cannot but ignore the claim against a member of our staff.

"I will never stop being amazed by the reviews posted on TripAdvisor by some people. There is no way to be sure who you are – I have no recollection of a customer who ordered a lemonade and a sandwich.

"I do not know when and if you were ever a guest, but you surely have the nerve to post this attempted slander hidden behind your anonymity.

"You speak of immorality and yet you are the one attempting slander. Where is the moral or the decency in your 'review'? The words lose their meaning when you use them. It is a disgrace."
