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.
After having been in Padstow, this was an equally fantastic experience, great fish plates, fantastic vibe, relaxed and friendly staff and 2 nice bar seats in a corner so it felt still private. We appreciated that we could order a dish that was not on the official menu as well! The only small disappointment was that there were no chocolate desserts and we thought the panna cotta was not as zesty as it sounded. But will def come back soon!
Really enjoyed my evening at Prawn on the Lawn the food was amazing best fish I’ve ever had and the staff were lovely! Will definitely be returning sooner rather than later!
Exceptional! The only seafood place that is worth it in London
Lovely evening thank you. We eat at the Padstow restaurant so excited to try this. Tuna and crab were delicious. Scallops and ray average for the price. In our opinion potatoes were overfried and a bit greasy, also bought out too late in the meal. We don't order bread so needed something to mop up the sauces. Great selection of wine at good prices. Pudding of afregato with coffee liquer was to die for. Still thinking about it now. The waiter who greeted and seated us was exceptionally good. The other guy less so and a bit frosty. The lady who brought out our wine was lovely. Thank you we will be back.
Amazing meal as always - the menu was different to last time I visited, and fully of truly delicious things. Sechuan prawns and buttermilk fried fish were two new highlights, while the crushed potatoes and deep fried oysters remain the most delicious in the land. Helpful staff, great buzz for a Tuesday night - what more could you want?!
Very much enjoyed eating at Prawn on the lawn . Seafood was so fresh , crabs and prawns excellent though lime coriander butter the lime was too overwhelming much preferred garlic butter sauce . The scallops again Thai marinade overwhelmed the scallops a lighter sauce would have been excellent . Breaded goujons lovely and crispy , the bread was delicious with the yummy butter . The whole brill fish was so fresh though this time a tad more salt and pepper in the simple sauce would hv lifted the flavour of the fish . The 2 desserts excellent! Very much enjoyed the mussels and clams broth delicious . Service although excellent and attentive , certain items ordered had to be reminded a few times . Would definitely revisit ! Very casual place yet cosy and comfortable.
Delicious lunch, lovely staff, fantastic seafood and fish
Undoubtedly the best seafood restaurant in N1. Incredible food and lovely place to spend an evening.
Great food, friendly service and good value for money. The place is a joy. I usually go for lunch and everybody I’ve taken has really enjoyed it.
We are familiar with the Padstow restaurant and love the 'Prawn...' concept. First time visit to the London set up and were absolutely delighted. Loved the hessian curtain that led through to a culinary wonderland! Favourite dish hake, fe ta and clams and mussels. Service superb as always. Would like to see a bottle of Ricsrd on the shelf in the bar. See you again very soon Lin and Dave Brice North Norfolk
Great food, service, and atmosphere!
Our favourite restaurant to visit for any celebration! We took our son for his 9th birthday (at his request!). Daniella and her staff are amazing - friendly, polite and efficient. The food is all delicious and they know our favourites now! We are so lucky to have Prawn on the Lawn just down the road!!!
Love love love Prawn On The Lawn.! ❤️
Great service and a superb range of seafood!
Very fresh seafood, lots of custom cooking options and friendly service!
Great evening as always. Loved the private dinning area & celebrating my Hawaii Five-O there. It was an amazing, fun evening. Staff were attentive, professional, friendly & interactive. My guests absolutely loved the venue & food. One of our favourite haunts. Sooo looking forward to returning :)))) We love you!! XXXX
The mussels and clams dish was the best food I’ve ever eaten. Really helpful waitstaff, made our day wonderful.
Delicious dishes of fish full of interesting flavours. Will certainly return.
It started so well: my Bloody Mary was delicious, the olives were like caramel, and the first dish, the prawn on avocado, promised good things. It was lying. The tuna was flaccid and devoid of taste. The kale salad was overpowered by the obscenely salty soy it was swimming in. The red mullet was bouncy and tasteless. We had to ditch the last sando dish because it hadn’t arrived 25 mins after the last plate had been finished. Surprisingly meh food, especially considering how mind blowingly yummy it was 6 months ago. Yawn on the Lawn.
My sister and I loved it. We just wish we had ordered more of the prawns- so scrummy.
Great atmosphere and Great food as always - Fish is so fresh and well prepared! Still lovin the spicy potatoes
Really delicious lunch!
Friendly but efficient service. Fantastic food. Always good
