4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2014 NEW

Ate here twice in five days and had great food, good service and very modest prices. The standout dish for me was the goulash served on a sort of pancake - very tasty and very filling. Also had an excellent cocktails and beer. Nice spot to eat on square if you can get a table (inside can be hot).

The main dining area is located downstairs. So wheelchair a big no. But dining area is tastefully decorated to its local culture. Meal was excellent! I do love the ravioli like pasta - pirego kapusta. Folk music and the Polish dancers authentic. Service was definitely perfect.

We ate at this restaurant twice out of 3 nights in Krakow. Great food, great location on a quiet square overlooking fountains. Superb service, with happy helpful staff. Each night we sat down and we were looked after straight away. Went to another restaurant in the main square and service and food was terrible. Waited for ages for anyone to... More

We had dinner here twice on our holiday and it was fantastic both times! The soup is amazing and the traditional polish cuisine was the best we had while in Poland. It is very cheap and the staff are nice. The cocktails are good too! Definitely visit!!

Krakow main square is packed with a multitude of restaurants/cafes/bistros all clambering for business, however, moving just a short distance away from the main throng is Plac Szczepanski where Morskie Oko is found. It was busy, but this was not surprising, as the food and drink were reasonably priced and the atmosphere was lively, with a folk band playing at... More

An unexpected visit to Kraków meant that my wife and I were looking for somewhere to eat, especially me having just arrived in Poland. Not only was our visit to Kraków unexpected, so to our visit to Morskie Oko, stumbling across it as we wandered through the Old Town in search of somewhere new. The entrance is impressive as it...

We were advised to try Morskie Oko. We were not disappointed. We tried pierogies, steak, soup, sausage and local honey schnapps. It was awesome and perfectly priced. Locals and tourists were there. I highly recommend.

Great service & fabulous food. Lovely atmosphere & music. The decor is very typically Polish, and the uniforms were great. We came as a large group and all had a lovely evening!

This wonderful place right next to the Globtroter (where we always stay) has been refurnished with hand-carved wood throughout. The ambiance, entertainment, and food are down-home Polish. The four of us each ordered something different so we could share. Tomato soup with noodles, potato pancakes, trout, pork cutlets, pierogis, tasty desserts, and lots of Okocim – everything we tried was... More
