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.
Great variety of fish,very imaginative and delicious recipes. A real treat. Happy atmosphere, good wine list, lovely staff. Can’t stop going back for more!
Staple choice in the area
Great food, with a fantastic atmosphere and menu selection.
The John Dory fillets were fresh, cooked expertly and delicious. But the accompanying Thai sauce, the cabbage and the crushed potatoes were all unbearably salty. This spoiled what might have been an excellent lunch and was not cheap at £90 + for two, drinking only tap water and having olives, bread and anchovies as a starter. The restaurant was full and very noisy which was a pity.
Perfect: as always.
Fantastic service and phenomenal food! Thank you!
Went on a Sunday and tried the fish roast - was fantastic, the sides were also excellent.
Great place really enjoyed meal
Food was lovely, the best part was the oysters! Loved the presentation and they were beautiful. The razor clams were also fab and dipping the soda bread in the oil from them was so good. The tomato salad was a little disappointing, a bit too basic, needed a bit more seasoning/dressing, and the gurnard was a bit over powered by the chorizo stew, although the flavours were nice. We liked how the dishes came out bit by bit so we could take our time. Service was fab from Simone, he seemed to work all the tables at top speed, was attentive and kept an eye on the front door (which people loved to leave open haha). The girl that was there when we arrived and seated us was a bit too cool for school and didn’t give us the warmest welcome, but everyone else seemed friendly.
We had an amazing dinner . The food was delicious and fresh . The atmosphere was pleasant and the staff were attentive . We will be back for sure .
Went for a staff Christmas dinner and it could not have been nicer. The staff were wonderfully helpful and the food was excellent as always. Continue to be 1 of my favourites in Islington
Always a lovely evening at the Prawn. Service in particular is charming.
Excellent- but very expensive to eat so you’re full!
Absolutely loved dining with you - first rate food and charming friendly service. You even made my darling dog welcome. We will definitely be back soon!! Thank you for a perfect afternoon.
One of my local faves for a payday treat or with guests who share my passion for oysters. Out of 10 dishes we ordered, 8 were exceptional! Recommend
Excellent seafood restaurant serving the freshest food of the highest quality.
Fantastic fresh seafood, great service. We sat at the bar area and found the chefs as well as serving staff incredibly helpful and attentive
The food was excellent and the service even better. The private dining room is a beautiful space with a lovely atmosphere and a good size table. The menu was created in collaboration with the restaurant through a very flexible and relaxed approach. All of our group thoroughly enjoyed it and we would highly recommend for any groups looking to book a relaxed and atmospheric PDR with amazing food and wine.
What a great little restaurant. Fantastic food and wonderful staff. A super evening!
I love it here! Great service and great food. The mussels were the best I have ever had. We come every few months and are never disappointed
Visited Prawn on the Lawn to celebrate my son’s birthday. Fab food and fab service. The fish roast looked good but we stayed with the small dishes and just had lots!
Second visit - superb once again! Thankyou very much!
