Žuvinė Palanga
J. Basanavičiaus str. 37A, Palanga

Žuvinė is a legendary fish and seafood restaurant in Palanga, where guests have been indulging in delicious dishes, elegant surroundings, and excellent service for two decades.

The concept of the place emphasises natural, organic, and authentic food, so frozen ingredients are confidently rejected here. The restaurant prepares dishes from fresh fish supplied by fishermen from the Baltic Sea region, ecological fish farms in Lithuania, and certified suppliers from around the world.

It's no wonder that the menu is ever-changing due to this approach, and the suggestions of Chef Andrius Gurevičius, who leads the kitchen, are dictated by the seasons. During autumn, guests can indulge in dishes featuring bream, pike perch, Baltic or Atlantic cod. As winter arrives, the menu shifts to tantalising smelt creations. With the onset of spring, wild catfish, Baltic turbot, or plaice take centre stage. And when the summer sun shines, the spotlight turns to mouthwatering eel. The restaurant's permanent menu includes delicacies from the world's waters, ranging from caviar or fresh oysters to octopus, clams, tuna, and trout dishes.

The owners of Žuvinė invite guests not only to dine but also to learn how to savour fish. Therefore, they will tell you more about the delicacies of the depths and also recommend the most suitable garnishes for each choice, further revealing the true marine flavours.
