A Sydney restaurant has taken to social media to shame customers who never showed up for their reservation amid the coronavirus pandemic, costing them 60 percent of their revenue.

Beppi's in Darlinghurst, in Sydney's east, has been a favorite with families since it first opened its doors in 1956, but like the majority of businesses in the industry, it has been devastated by the pandemic.

Under current regulations, restaurants can open to up to 10 diners at a time, which means that when people fail to show up for a reservation, it has a disastrous effect on a businesses' bottom line.

Dolly Parton reminded fans that God loves them during the coronavirus pandemic:

But the rules are now changing to allow up to 50 diners to enter premises at a time from June 1, per News.com.au.

This prompted Bebbi's to reveal that they have had an "overwhelming response" to their reopening and that it has been "great to hear the sounds of diners back in our restaurant."

But Beppi's revealed that one "disappointment" had made one of the few reservations available only to fail to show up.

"Last night we had a total of [a] table of 6 did not show. 60 percent of our revenue GONE [sic], " the post reads.

"No call to cancel, phone just goes to message bank. Disgraceful behaviour. We are temped to post the name and number of the customer however thought best not [sic]."

The restaurant said it had made the "conscious decision not to take credit card details or deposits" and to trust its customers and the "overwhelming majority" of them have been fantastic.

"The selfish few spoil it for others and inflict further financial pain of an industry already decimated by the pandemic," the post continues. Grazie mille to all those customers supporting and respecting our industry during these tough times."

In response, loyal Beppi's customers slammed the no show describing it as "disgraceful" and "shocking behavior", with one going as far as to tell the restaurant to "name and shame" offenders as "it's not appropriate to no show!"
