The hefty bill was handed to tourist Juan Carlos Bustamente at the Caffe Lavena in St Mark’s Square, Venice.
A furious customer has slammed a cafe that charged £38 for two coffees and two waters – but the owner says it’s HIS fault for choosing to sit outside.
The hefty bill was handed to a tourist at the Caffe Lavena in St Mark’s Square in the city of Venice, Italy.
Juan Carlos Bustamente, 62, was so appalled at being charged the equivalent of nearly £40, (43 euros) for four non-alcoholic drinks – he shared a photo of the itemised bill on social media.
It showed that he had been charged 11.50 euros, £10.30, for each cup of coffee, and 10 euros, £8.90, for each 25cl bottle of water.
The Caffe Lavena enjoys one of the prime spots in Venice, one of the world’s most popular tourist cities, but Mr Bustamente was still taken aback by the size of the bill.
