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.

I came across Prawn on the Lawn online and booked to celebrate my mother's 50th birthday. My initial correspondence with the manager was great, not only was she helpful about the inquiries I had before booking, but she also gave us the private function room free of charge, which made our lunch very special. The waiting staff were very attentive to our needs and informative in terms of the menu and dish recommendations, etc. It was a very nice lunch with excellent service and it was a great way to spend my mother's birthday, so thank you.

I had visited The Padstow restaurant several times in the last two years. I hosted a party there for 16 people last year that couldn’t have gone any better. I visited the London restaurant hoping the experience would be mirrored. It was, the service was perfect and the food continues to impress me. Quite often I go away from restaurants and the experience gets better each time I recount my visit. Every time I visit POTL I am reminded why I recommend this restaurant as the best I have eaten in around the World.

I dined at the restaurant 17:30 Saturday with my girlfriend. It was amazing, the staff were lovely and the food was fantastic. The scallops were the best I've had and we loved the asian twists.

Food was brilliant, staff were kind and attentive - the whole experience was brilliant. Usually not the biggest sea-food fan, but this was some of the best I had ever had! Nice touch that all the menu changes daily, depending on what is caught that day in Devon/Cornwall. Good work.

It was great. Fab night with lovely food. The service was a perfect mix of attentive and non obtrusive. The food arrived promptly and was delicious. The sashimi trout was light and delicate and the squid with ndjuda was wonderfully robust and a flavour sensation. I only had one small gripe- a lack of non alcoholic beverages! As a non drinker it doesn’t take much to add a non alcoholic beer to the otherwise fantastic menu.

I am a foodie and I love eating out in London. I used to own and run a restaurant in North London and so I not only appreciate a well cooked and balanced meal, but also a good service. I am a regular at Prawn on the Lawn and once again I had a truly fantastic meal. Daniela is the most welcoming, polite and professional manager. She always makes me feel at home and she always welcomes me with the biggest smile. Patrizia is the best fish chef I have encountered in the past five years. She understands and knows how to cook fish to perfection! The fish is always very fresh and seasonal. The oysters were beautifully tasty and very fresh. On the down side, Prawn on the Lawn could improve their dessert options. I love a bit of innovation when it comes to a good dessert and it would be really nice if the selection on their dessert menu could be more creative and varied.
