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.

Lovely creative use of space, fab menu, amazing staff. Due to small size of restaurant we were a bit close and overlooked by couple at the high seats.

What a fantastic meal. Went for the small plates plus a couple of sides and everything was amazing, perfectly executed and so packed with flavour. Wine list also very good and not too expensive. Really nice relaxed ambiance. Best fish restaurant I've been to in ages. Shame to have to go back to work afterwards :(

The food is superb. We've eaten here 20+ times. The menu has had some recent dishes. The Hake with butter beans is to die for. Also consistently super: the scallops and the tuna. A welcome addition is the skate. And we always enjoy the gurnard.

Outstanding service. We were completely blown away by the level of customer service.. As our first meal was interrupted by an unfortunate plumbing incident. We were asked to return and give Prawn on the Lawn another chance.. Were we glad that we did! Daniela was beyond kind and made our second experience unforgettable, and every question or request was handled delicately and expertly. The freshness and quality of the fish is incredible, as each dish seems to showcase this rather than over crowd the magnificent produce. Top 3 dishes: Szechuan prawns, Sea Trout ceviche and seared tuna.. I could go on. Thank you Daniela and Team, keep up the good work, we'll be back!

First time we have visited this restaurant. It was very quiet at 4pm. The staff were very attentive the food was excellent. Cost matches the quality of the food a little pricey but worth it. We will be going again.

The service was excellent - very friendly, attentive staff. We ordered different plates with a couple of sides, rather than one big dish. The cold plates we tried were fresh and full of flavour and we would certainly recommend the potatoes as a side dish. The gem lettuce was a little underwhelming - just lettuce with grated Grana Padano. The hake plate was also a little lacking in flavour, particularly when comparing it to the cold dishes, though the fish was cooked well and it was nicely presented. Lastly, the cuttlefish was also a little disappointing - again, not particularly flavoursome. We tried the Cornish Negroni which was nice and a glass of Sancerre which was nicely chilled and had a lovely crisp clean finish. Probably would have given the food and drink 3.5 stars rather than 3 but it seems you can't select a half star. The tables are, necessarily, quite close together so you are able to hear the conversation of those on the table next to you but it wasn't overly noisy. We would certainly recommend a visit to the restaurant but would suggest just trying the cold plates.
