What a delightful evening we had at this restaurant. When we arrived we were a bit worried because it was rather empty but by 7 it was filling up and soon the tables were all full. Delightful meal with a few adds to the Restaurant Week menu and all in all in was very enjoyable. We would return.
One thing is the parking though! That corner is extremely busy and people would be advised to park across the road in an open parking area. It is monitored but it is R20.

Starters sounded delightful - Bang Bang Prawns were a little on the oily side, but tasty. Mains were delish... Crayfish curry spicy but certainly not overwhelming to allow the crayfish flavour to come through. Lobster ravioli - just delicious!
OK, being a Tuesday after a long week-end, one can understand the place...

OK, being a Tuesday after a long week-end, one can understand the place not being full. The Prawnery has a lot to offer - great position, vibe and service with a great variety to offer. Would love to be there when restaurant is busy - and it deserves to be!

This restaurant survived the lockdowns, and thank goodness. The restaurantweek menu was fantastic, everything was excellent. How they manged to do a crayfish curry with so much crayfish in it, I don't know. We tried 3 of the 4 starters and all were perfect. The two mains were also perfect as were the desserts. Have no idea why the place wasn't packed out, can thoroughly recommend it. The regular menu is also enticing, and they make sushi fresh all the time. Get there, you will not be disappointed!

Our food is paired with a proudly local and extensive wine offering, ice-cold beers and sexy cocktails all set in an eclectic, stylish and friendly space perfect experience for both the fun-seeking as well as sophisticated patrons, looking for good food in a playful, personal and conceptual atmosphere.

21June 2020 marked the first anniversary of The Prawnery, Illovo. The Prawnery opened its doors to an excited and welcoming Joburg community, who were fascinated by its menu. A meze offering that called for 1 of each and an abundant and decadent main offering that really hit the spot!

In just a year, we are having to define and craft exactly what The Prawnery will be in years to come, now more than ever and under the most stringent of health precautions, are we doing purposeful meal planning and a curated food offering that is a treat and as always, a delightful eating experience, but is also nourishing, wholesome and meaningful.
