Mouth-watering adverts from restaurants and fast-food chains entice us to try their meals – but these pictures prove the products often don’t live up to expectations.
Unimpressed diners from around the world have shared very misleading PR images found at eateries, along with the disgusting dishes they were actually served.
One example includes a cheese plate which promised an array of items artistically displayed – but only included four meats slapped onto a board and a Babybel.
Collated by Bored Panda, another photograph showed a juicy-looking grilled salmon next to the burnt version the customer was actually given.
