Description: Proposed Review: Fisherman's Inn ZUVELE is situated in Juodkrante near the long Lagoon. The name of this charming seaside-patio, shaped like a boat with fish-shaped wooden-chair backs, means Fishy. This business is run by the family of the oldest local fisherman, who brings his daily catch to be served for clients. Restaurant's menu is based on fish dishes, from local salt and fresh waters fish, that is prepared fried, boiled, grilled or marinated. Moreover, you can purchase hot-smoked fish from a little old lady, who sells it directly from a smoker facing the dining area. She snips the fish with shears into pieces, which you then take away to eat with your bare hands. That appears to be the only way smoked fish can be had throughout the Curonian Spit. The restaurant does provide a wash basin located directly in the dining area. You'll likely also need that after carefully plucking the fish off the bones in the delicious fish soup, made from several kinds of fish, and containing any part of the fish whatsoever (mine had an orange-colored fishtail in it). For the more-fastidious dinner, most of the other menu items can be eaten with knife and fork alone. This is not fare to eat in all one's finery, or a place to proudly display your impeccable table manners, but you'd be hard-pressed to find fresher or better-tasting local seafood. There is a wondrous garden in back (through which you pass on the way to the WC), where the restaurant grows some of its own vegetables and herbs, where there was a squash vine growing up and out of a soil-filled dory. To us, Zuvele was a truly memorable experience from our two-week trip across Lithuania in August 2011.

Fresh and tasty fish, the only place in town with a variety. Friendly staff. Close to the lagune. Fair prices.

Accidentally walked into this restaurant to have a coffee ended up having the best mackerel dish ever. The Beer, wine, juices and even the deserts are fabulous. Staff was really great too

This is definitely a Fish place and little Chicken place, but no Meat.
When going here they really have good and tasty Fish dishes from the soups and appetizers to the Main courses, the Fish ball soup and Fish fingers are really tasty but if looking for anything else then Fish there is only one chicken dish as main course.
The place is right on the harbor and view is good, the staff is friendly and polite, size of portions are good and big and tasty. A real good fish place to visit.

we have been there on june 1st - very very hot day and quite hungry after 12 km hike

we ordered “otas” fish and it was amazing. even i liked ir very much as usualy i cant find good white fish in baltics. here it was amazing and very well prepared

also we had fish balls soup which was ok - no big expectations.

the wine card was pretty good and wide enough for place like this

the green cocktail also a new and simple discovery!

totally recommended and i will return here on my next visit to juodkrante

We were going to this place to eat Eel fish soup, and it was a little disappointment, that there was no soup left. We tried fish soup with fish balls :) And Actually it was tasty and we all liked it. Service is nice. Also I saw, that there are place for kids to play. Next time we will visit, I hope we will try Eel soup and other dishes.
