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 stretches up across two floors. The whole entrance is decorated in a 'mountain' theme, so there's wood and fur throws everywhere. As we were led up to the upstairs dining area we walked past the new part of the restaurant, so new the wood is of a lighter colour and it gives off a 'just chopped' timber smell (which is not off-putting).
I had golonka (slow-cooked pork knuckle) and my wife had ribs. Both were absolutely delicious and the service was good too. Most of the staff are wear traditional dress which adds to the atmosphere.
The prices are reasonable too and we would definitely recommend and return to Morskie Oko.
