Morskie Oko was by far one of my favourite restaurants when we visited Poland. It’s located in a beautiful art nouveau building just off the Main Square in Krakow, with the unique décor referring to a highlander’s inn. Think dinner by candlelight, charming timber alcoves and wood burning fireplaces.
Upon entering the restaurant, we were lead underground where the timber aesthetic continued and we were seated on a bench table with sheepskin rugs. The lighting was dim, and we ate by candlelight. For starter I had a traditional Polish sausage grilled with onion and some bread. Polish sausages are really tasty and this was somewhat larger than your average expected starter. This was followed by Pierogi with lamb and a mushroom sauce and I cant even begin to describe to you how good this was. By far the tastiest Pierogi I had on my trip. To finish, we tried a selection of regional vodkas, of course!
See some pictures below from our visit, and I really would recommend this restaurant if you’re ever in Krakow!
