An American soldier and his friends were left aghast after being presented with a staggering $935 check for a modest lunch of calamari, salads and beers in Greece.

Cisco Rock, from Brooklyn, revealed on TripAdvisor 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.

A member of New York's 69th Infantry Regiment, Rock said he couldn't believe his eyes when he realized they'd been charged $661.41 (€591) for six plates of calamari and $167.87 (€150) for six beers - an eye-watering $27.97 per drink.

Cisco and his friends were also charged $66.46 (€59,40) for three Caesar salads with chicken, $20.14 (€17.80) for two bottles of water and an additional $20.18 ($18) for a single glass of tomato juice.

Venice Charging Tourist Fees for Day Trippers

Venice Charging Tourist Fees for Day Trippers Travelers will be charged between $7-$11 per day, depending on the season. “This is a significant turning point in the management of Venice's tourist flows,” Venice Mayor Luigi Brugnaro told Reuters. “Venice needs respect, and as is the case with museums, sports stadiums, cinemas, trains and airplanes, it needs to have planned visits... which makes it sustainable both for tourists and the city,” Veneto governor Luca Zaia said. The population of Venice continues to drop as residents complain about the city being overrun by tourists, with locals being stuck with the bill to clean up and protect the region.

Described as a 'modern day saga of hedonism and indulgence' with 'unsurpassed views' on its website, Cisco has warned other tourists to keep their distance from DK Oysters.

'Avoid this place, this place is a trap,' Rock said, posting an image of the check to TripAdvisor.

Tourists stunned as Notre-Dame cathedral statues fly above Paris

Tourists stunned as Notre-Dame cathedral statues fly above Paris Sixteen copper statues briefly took to the skies over Paris after they were removed from the Notre-Dame cathedral to undergo restoration work. Built between the years 1163 and 1345, Notre-Dame is one of the most popular tourist sites in Paris, drawing around 13 million people every year. Its spire, like the rest of the gothic edifice, is undergoing an 11-million-euro ($12.4-million) overhaul financed by the French state to repair damage inflicted by time, pollution and the weather. "Extraordinary," said Sofiane, an onlooker from London, as the statues flew through piercing blue skies suspended from a giant 100-metre (300-foot) crane.

But across the last few weeks, the restaurant has received a slew of scathing reviews from a growing list of angry customers, who, similarly to Cisco, warn of the establishment's extreme price-points and unfriendly serving staff.

'Simply a disgrace,' wrote one UK tourist, JackLK. 'We paid 38 euros for a Prosecco and Gin. Don’t go there. All locals knew what they did and it gives resort a bad name.... I went back to check as thought it was mistake. The manager ‘John’ just showed me price list. My fault really but truly an attitude that suggests they are better than they are.

'The daily ‘hello how are you’ from your staff are unfortunately as insincere as your business...Locals please get it closed down. It’s not good for your businesses when you're all so great.'

DK Oyster has not yet responded to a DailyMail.com request for comment.

'Since you admit that the prices were indeed those stated in the menu, I feel that some competitors have tried and succeeded in the defamation of our restaurant,' a DK representative wrote.

'We have already contacted the authorities against certain people spreading rumors against us. Because, you see, you are not the only one who returned this way. A couple came to our restaurant, left a huge tip and next morning the came (just like you), because a lady told them that we are overcharging.

'If anyone reads carefully your review, it is evident that there is something really disgraceful. But it is not us. I am certain that if you think about it more carefully you might realize that too.'

Despite the restaurant's protests, countless other customers have taken to the travel review site to upload pictures of their hefty checks, insisting that something just doesn't add up.

'14.80 euros for 2 course meal with glass of wine plus sun beds the following day sounds great,' wrote Brit Elizabeth S.

'However the cocktails cost 17 euros each and the staff were more than reluctant to give us anything other than the A La Carte menu. At every opportunity they kept pushing items from the more expensive option. Bread 8 euros Water 8 euros, what a scam!'

Another patron's check 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 checks by the restaurant, while some even went as far to say that the staff had been rude and abusive.

Brew hullabaloo gets German tourists kicked out of Venice.
A couple of German tourists were ordered to leave Venice on Friday for brewing coffee at the foot of the famous Rialto bridge. It is the 40th time the rules have resulted in tourists being ordered to leave town since they were brought in in May, it said. "Venice must be respected, and bad-mannered people who think they can come here and do what they want must understand that, thanks to local police, they will be caught, punished and expelled," Venice Mayor Luigi Brugnaro said. "From now on, we will also communicate the identities of those subject to a removal order to their embassies and consulates," he added in a statement.
