Ethical Dilemma: Blogging about bugs

I recently returned to a restaurant that I had reviewed glowingly. In the middle of our amazing, authentic, inspiring meal - we find a bug in our food. It was so upsetting. We quietly notified the staff, they were horrified and comped our meal, we left feeling unsettled. As a blogger, I want to report the full story. This is a hole- in-the wall place trying to run an honest business and I would not want any harm done to them. What is the right thing to do here?
