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.
Brilliant we could bring our dog! Lovely lady also got all the crab from out of the shells for us-above and beyond Crab tho ok was overpriced - not Ana I f enough for£28 The rest was amazing value for money and we loved the fact that London had the same lovely vibe as padstow Great Argentinian lady who looked after us and our doggie beautifully x
Amazing food, great service and lovely almosphere. 100% recommend.
We absolutely loved the food although the scallops were not to our taste- perhaps too much lemongrass?! Delicious fresh fish though and will definitely be back.
Great as usual!
Great food and excellent service.
Service was let down by having to ask twice for our potatoes, otherwise would have been 5/5
Super fresh seafood, perfectly cooked every time.
Fabulous food, cleverly done. An absolute joy.
It was my first time dining at Prawn on the Lawn on Thursday and unfortunately I got food poisoning, from what I think was the Dorset Oysters. The service was great but I will not be coming back because of the above reason.
Excellent tapas fish menu, and super wines.
We had the platter which was lovely, we were just disappointed that the price had increased by £15 since we last visited yet you didn’t seem to get anything more to justify the higher price.
This was our second visit and Prawn on the Lawn surpassed itself! The food was beyond delicious (special mention to the phenomenal mussels and clams with sherry sauce) and the staff were friendly, knowledgable and attentive. Will definitely be coming back.
This is probably my favourite place to eat in London. Food is consistently incredible, staff are lovely. Highly recommended!
We celebrated a birthday there with friends and not only was the food excellent so was the attentiveness and co-operation of the staff. We had a thoroughly enjoyable evening.
Not quite Padstow for setting but the food is every bit as good!
I think your restaurant is one of the best places to eat in London and have eaten there on numerous occasions. Food is always high quality and service is attentive.
Delicious food and lovely atmosphere, fresh seafood cooked in unique and fresh ways, would definitely recommend!
Fabulous as always!!! Friendly staff, superb food. Prompt and efficient service! One of my favourite restaurants!!! Always such a wonderful dining experience.
Been trying to visit for a while, to be honest the ''goal'' was eating lobster. You did not have any lobster because ''the menu depending on what your fisherman have caught''. Anyway, we choose small plates to share. Mussels & clams - tasty. Langoustines - OK, nothing special. Scallops - tasty, OK. ''Prawn on the lawn'' plate - you have to think about that, this is just a breakfast toast that everyone can prepare at home. The potatoes and the desserts are fantastic but is this the idea of a fish restaurant? I am sorry to say but we will not try again. Thanks.
Great evening. Food was excellent. Friendly and helpful staff. Would definitely recommend to friends and anyone else who will listen.
Fab food and service! looking forward to going back!
the food and service has always been excellent
