Another couple has spoken out about a Mykonos restaurant becoming notorious for saddling unsuspecting tourists with towering tabs for a few drinks and a bite to eat.

Theodora McCormick, a 50-year-old lawyer from New Jersey, said she and her husband were slapped with a $557 tab for a dozen oysters and four drinks at the DK Oyster Bar - which they only ordered to be polite while stopping in to call a cab.

She said when they complained about the bill a gauntlet of 'hulking' male waiters intimidatingly surrounded them until they agreed to swallow the bill.

Speaking to The Sun, McCormick recounted the 'weird experience,' and called the restaurant an obvious 'scam' in hindsight.

McCormick's account comes a week after a young Canadian couple's headline-making tab of $410 for one beer, one cocktail, a dozen oysters at the same restaurant prompted its owner, Dimitrios Kalamara, to call the couple 'wannabe influencers' trying to gain attention.

'I feel foolish because I don't normally fall for those types of scams,' McCormick told The Sun, 'It was just a spur-of-the-moment thing. We weren't planning on eating there, but we saw the sign.'

McCormick said she and her husband were looking for a taxi back to their hotel on the last day of their Greek vacation when they saw a outside DK Oyster bar saying they could call a cab inside.  

'I told my husband, 'Oh, why don't we call a taxi and grab a drink,'' she said, 'That was my big mistake.'

When she asked for a cocktail menu, McCormick said the waiter didn't bring one and instead listed drink options aloud. 

The couple ordered two beers, two martinis, and also a dozen oysters which McCormick said the waiter nagged them into ordering.

When the beers arrived she said they were enormous - about three pints brimming to the surface of a pair of great glass boots - and the couple braced themselves to pay premium prices.

'It was Mykonos, we knew it was going to be ridiculous. 250-odd euros, that's what we were thinking,' she said, 'But when we got the bill and it was around 500 euros.'
