A TOURIST in Greece was left fuming after being charged €591 (£521) for just six pieces of calamari at a restaurant in Mykonos.
The entire bill ended up amounting to a whopping €836 (£737).
The tourist, who is from the US, posted an image of their receipt after dining at the restaurant DK Oyster to TripAdvisor.
On the receipt, they were charged the high bill for three Caesar salads, six local beers, two bottles of water and a tomato juice, along with the seafood.
Their review, which gave the establishment just one star, said: "This place is a rip off, look at the picture I posted.
"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 COST! No pun intended."
