Exceptional service! Very welcoming and a great experience. Food was also top class and I certainly want to go back for more. I feel the restaurant may just be in the wrong area to establish itself as a good restaurant vs bistro bar...

One of the few (if perhaps the only) places you can get prawns cooked to perfection, juicy, tender, perfect. Everything else is really good too, this restaurant never fails.

About The Prawnery

Cuisine: Seafood

About the Prawnery

A fresh, vibrant and flavourful food offering, that explores the many delicious, varied and indulgent ways one can enjoy prawns and seafood. 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.
