Couple’s holiday ruined after £10 chicken overcooked and chips raw

A couple claim they were told to “f*** off back to England” by staff at a restaurant while on holiday in Crete. The Brits were accused of not paying their bills at three Koutouloufari venues.

Pictures of Angela and Ian McKie were even posted on Facebook by one of the restaurants and they were accused of not paying their bill on August 30. The post from the restaurant claimed it was the third such incident.

But the couple say that was not the case. At one restaurant, they said, there was an incident where they initially refused to pay around £10 – 12 euros – for an “overcooked” chicken dish, which they said they informed staff off. However, they said they ended up leaving having paid the bill in full after feeling intimidated.

Angela told the Liverpool ECHO: “We ordered two starters and two main meals. Ian had the spaghetti Bolognese, which was fine. I had the chicken souvlaki, it was overcooked and the chips were raw. I complained to the waitress, but she just smirked. We asked for the bill, but said we wouldn’t be paying for the chicken, which was €12. The manager then said we should’ve complained earlier, which we did do.”

Angela, from Netherley, Liverpool, said that the staff at the restaurant made her and Ian feel uncomfortable when they complained about the quality of the chicken dish. She said the manager then told her they “would be in a police cell tonight” if they didn’t pay for it.

Worried about that threat, Angela said they paid the €52 bill in full by leaving the money on a cash box on the table and walked out of the restaurant. As they were leaving, Angela said they were then subjected to verbal abuse.

She said: “We were terrified. Someone shouted f*** off back to England.” The incident led to the Facebook post, which branded the couple as thieves and said they had left three restaurants without paying, including that one. Angela said they did not even go to the other restaurants they were accused of stealing from.

She said: “It’s been terrible, it has upset all of our family. We’re constantly trying to defend ourselves – there have been vile comments about us that aren’t the truth. I’m not being branded a thief. It ruined the holiday.”
