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.

Absolutely fantastic food. Lemon sole cooked to perfection. Three small plates for starters between two people and three sides with the main course of lemon sole and monkfish, followed by desert was probably too much. Our eyes were definitely bigger than our bellies! It is expensive but worth it for the range of dishes on offer and the friendly and efficient service.

We arrived at 7 and you’d already run out of lobster. Probably just make sure you have enough in stock? We ordered the crab instead but luckily it was the last one.

First visited while on holiday in Padstow, hooked! So lucky to be an hour away from the Islington restaurant, at least a twice a year treat! Exceptional x

Fantastic staff - very knowledgable and attentive. We didn’t enjoy a dish (mackerel) and the staff were fantastic at remedying it for us.

Just love this restaurant. I am a pescatarian so a fish and seafood place is a good start. Add to that perfectly executed dishes and delicious wines and it is a winner!

From arrival to departure I had an incredible dining experience. The service was super friendly and professional, the food; divine and the atmosphere perfect. I cannot recommend PotL enough - although I don't want to recommend it too much as I might never get a table again!

We had a fantastic lunch at POTL. The waitress was incredibly warm and helpful. Fish would never be my first choice but my partner loves it hence the booking. The food was delicious, we had some small plates and the monkfish and Dover sole. Everything was delicious ,cooked to perfection. The venue is small and relaxed. I would highly recommend to anyone.

Delicious and local - just what we wanted! A few more cheaper options would be great but overall worth every penny.

We both love shellfish and wanted to go somewhere weve not been to before. Having recently got my wife into Oysters, I wanted a restauarant that not only served Oysters, but also Crab, Lobster, Mussels, Scallops etc. I looked at a few in the London area, but was also looking for something more casual than the stuffy upmarket Mayfair eateries. Prawn on the Lawn caught my eye initially as I read that they also had a restaurant in Padstow Cornwall and that is a well know area for fresh Shellfish and Fish. I booked it for 8.15pm and was told that we could only have 2 x bar seats, if im honest, having sat there, I much prefer to sit and watch the open kitchen prepare the delicious dishes than sit at a table for two! Our server Shania (Sha-Ny-Ya) was informative and friendly and explained the dishes and different types of Oysters on offer. We had a selection of Carlingford and Maldon Oysters to start that were superb, Prawn on the lawn (Sourdough Toast, Advocado and Prawns) then followed by our main course of Fruit de Mare, which was a huge platter of Dorset Crab, Prawns, Mussels, Cockles, Razor Clam, Scallops etc. The staff were very friendly, the food superb and I for one will definately be back, Highly recommend this low key casual shellfish restauarant.

Sunday roast was a flavour sensation, monkfish was beautifully cooked and all sides were perfect. Ice cream sandwich dessert was a taste sensation! Really great service throughout, was lovely to be back and will visit again
