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.
Nice to have PotL back! It remains one of the best restaurants in London, and by extension, the country.
Absolutely excellent meal at Prawn on the lawn after lockdown. It was my first visit and I will definitely be back. Great food, excellent service and the view from the counter seats into the kitchen was really nice as well
Great meal (again) and a hugely welcoming team. Love the set up and the choice is excellent. Thanks to all for looking after us so well.
What a treat! The staff were amazing. So cheery, helpful and created a very relaxed atmosphere. The food was incredible and the drinks lovely too. We will be back!
Outstanding food and customer service one of the best fish bar / restaurant in London
Love it here!
Great food and lovely service
Great food - will defiantly be back. Was nice to have some other people around to make the experience normal. Only slight complaint was on the service. “Wait here” sticker at the door - but I found myself standing there for ages while members of staff just looked at me ...afterwards service was friendly- but slow ..this is a niggle rather than a complaint- as the food more than makes up for it
So glad to come back and to feel safe and relaxed, eating my favourites one by one. Thank you for being such a marvellous local restaurant.
Incredible food, this is the third time I’ve visited and it never disappoints. Excellent quality, wonderful flavours and impeccable service.
Lovely and friendly. Always good food! And thank you for the booking reminders.
Fab service and incredible food. Social distancing measures were really strong too
Wonderful food with great service. Felt like a normal atmosphere regardless of Covid measures
Love, love, love this restaurant! V fresh fish and seafood, beautifully prepared and presented. Always great, friendly service.
Great food and atmosphere!
The food was fresh and delicious; it felt safe with the tables not close together and a reduced number so didn't feel nervous eating there; the wine recommendation was great; the team was helpful; our server was really friendly; had a wonderful time! The oysters are SO GOOD!
Perfect as per usual. Delighted to see that the bar seating is back. Loved the new screens. Fab!
Great meal as usual.. lovely airy space and really friendly warm staff. One of my favourites ... Glad to be back !
A seafood restaurant worth visiting time after time
It's a cheerful, charming place. Service is charming but can be a bit slow and disorganised. Really like the food but they can be a bit overenthusiastic with the spicing - lovely delicate seafood doesn't need nduja sauce IMO. But I do love it, and we've been many times.
Lovely to be back
Prawn on the Lawn must be one of the best fish and sea food restaurants in London. It is a really wonderful place, the food is fantastic and the staff are great.
Love POTL and the team there - so excited they're back.
Amazing food, really lovely and helpful staff and great atmosphere.
