  • Dubrovnik & the fresh orange juice scam

    by Orange13 Updated Apr 23, 2013

    A very small scam but unpleasant none the less.
    I ordered a fresh orange juice at a cocktail bar in the centre of the old town and was served a cheap concentrated industrial juice with lots of ice cubes...
    Price difference was 10 kuna between the two sorts, more than 1 EUR. More for the principle, I told the guy and asked to pay for what I was served, no more.
    A very unpleasant waiter showed me the machine to squeeze the oranges (clean, with the pack of cheap industrial juice next to it...) and lied, pretending I could not tell the difference.
    In the end, three employees circled me and asked me to pay for the more expensive stuff. As I gave up, I paid with a 200 kuna note and the waiter tried to pretend I gave only 100 kuna when giving back the change.
    Funnily enough, I was offered a fresh orange juice again in another restaurant a couple of days later and as I refused, mentioning I had a bad experience with that, the guy smiled and I had the impression he knew what I meant...
    More than the scam, the shameless and aggressive behavior of the employees at the bar left me with a very bad taste...
