About Prawn on the Lawn (London)
Prawn on the Lawn in Islington is a fully licensed fishmonger and restaurant situated near to Islington’s buzzing Upper Street. Established in 2013 by Rick Toogood and his wife Katie, it began life as a seafood bar and fishmonger but has now been extended to include a 35 seater restaurant and 16 seating private dining room, serving only the freshest seafood and tapas-style fish dishes. Prawn on the Lawn serves creative plates including seared tuna, thai style scallops and our signature Prawn on the Lawn dish, as well as larger platters such as Crab, Lobster, Fruits De Mer and fresh fish you can pick from the counter, sourced directly from day boats and fish markets in Devon and Cornwall. We make every effort to be as seasonal and sustainable as possible and change our menu every day.
Awesome food. Chablis amazing.
First visit, fantastic flavours and fresh fish. A great addition to dinning in Islington.
Fabulous food, lovely atmosphere - cannot recommend highly enough.
Having visited POTL Padstow in 2016 I was very excited to visit POTL Islington and knew i’d be in for a treat. My friend described this as the best food she had eaten in a long time. The hake was to die for, as were the crispy potatoes which could only have been improved by the addition of the garlic crème fraîche that accompanied the deep fried oysters. Food made perfect. Could not ask for any more.
Ery nice but felt the fruits de er was a bit mean considering the price
Excellent as always.
Excellent, fresh fish. Interesting dishes, great and knowledgeable service.
A real delight - an excellent fish menu and selection of dishes
Second visit to the Islington site, after several to the Padstow one. Exceptional seafood, great, buzzy atmosphere and lovely service. Already booked a return .
We had a wonderful evening. Daniella helped me out when I called (twice!) and followed up on arrival. Our waiter (sorry, no name) was genuinely helpful and not at all intrusive. The food was delicious - my favourite was the anchovies on toast!. I chose you as a treat for my sister and she was thrilled with the whole evening. We can't wait to come back and this time I will have the whole crab! ! Thank you for providing something really special.
As good as ever. Always a satisfying, fun, tasty, delicious experience.
The food and service were not disappointing, but portions were small (even for small plates) and prices were not too far off from Soho. It did not ruin our evening and while I would strongly recommend the cocktail bar linked to the restaurant, I would probably think twice before dining there again.
Absolutely wonderful time! Was parents and in-laws first meeting and couldn't have asked for a better lunch! Would highly recommend!!
Amazing food, brilliant service, lovely atmosphere.
Very helpful staff. Terrific food.
I have to say the food was sublime and the best seafood and fish we have had in a long time in a restaurant! Every dish was so full flavour! Will definitely be back x
The three of us absolutely loved our lunch at Prawn on the Lawn. Every dish was delicious and the sharing style was perfect for getting a little bit of everything. The side dishes were also amazing. We thoroughly recommend POTL and we will be back in the future to try the dishes we didn't have room for! The service was very friendly and the customers were chatting to each other too; all in all a great experience, thank you.
delightful - but the price/portion equation is all too clearly in favour of the restaurant. service was helpful and friendly - thanks! will definitely visit again - but no longer top of my list for local fish.
This was my first time here and I would certainly recommend it to anyone. I normally do not provide feedback but I feel that this restaurant thoroughly deserves it. The food and service was fantastic
Amazing food and service!!
Awesome thank you
It was our second visit at prawn on the lawn, again food was excellent and we will definitely come back. We were a bit disappointed that the wine of our choice and a few dishes were out of order when we ordered. So we will make sure to book earlier next time (our booking was 8:15pm). The only downside to the place it's the fact that it's quite small and noisy but the food is worth it. I would recommande prawn on the lawn to anyone. The service once again was spotless, warm and welcoming.
Great restaurant, will definitely come again. Excellent service too.
