Couple mortified after ‘paying £333’ for a ‘quick snack’ and drinks on honeymoon
A couple on their honeymoon claim they were left sickened after being given a €400 bill for a “quick snack” and a few drinks.
Lindsay Breen and her husband Alex, both 30, said that they dropped into a restaurant during their post-wedding holiday in Mykonos.
The couple claim they headed to DK Oyster on the Greek island for a snack, but were shocked by the massive bill.

Lindsay and Alex, who were married in Italy in May, say they ordered 12 oysters, a beer and an Aperol spritz and were handed a bill for €400 (£333.95).
The husband and wife claim that Alex was taken into a back room to pay the bill, and that he did so without question due to feeling intimidated by the situation.
Newlywed Lindsay said: "We went to the oyster bar for a bite to eat and a drink. They immediately said 'do you want oysters?' They were very presumptuous."
The Canadian woman said that the waiter was also “lurking around the table the whole time.”
After the pair finished the oysters, Lindsay claims he pushed them to eat more.
She said: “When we'd finished the oysters, he was trying to get us to have crab legs and thank goodness we didn’t.
"My husband went to the toilet and when he came back he said he thought he'd seen a menu inside that said it was 29 Euros per oyster and I said there's no way."
After declining desserts, Lindsay and Alex asked for the bill.
She explained: "When we were ready to leave, I went to the washroom and they had my husband go into a back room to pay which is sketchy.
"They gave him the bill which was over 400 euros. He was shocked and asked for a breakdown.
"They had a computer screen that they turned to him and it was all in Greek but we don't speak Greek.
"He got a sketchy vibe from them and didn't want to get himself in a bad situation so he ended up paying it.
"He definitely felt intimidated and he's the friendliest guy so even if the bill was double he probably would have paid it to avoid any problems."

The pair stayed for one more night on the island before flying to Athens ahead of returning home to North America.
Lindsay continued: "Luckily we had enough money left, we were using our credit card for larger expenses. I can imagine how someone would end up with no money."
Fellow restauranteurs in the area apparently apologised to the couple on behalf of DK Oysters, the duo claim. One apparently even warned tourists to avoid the eatery.
