Mini Review: The Prawnery

Looking for a new dinner-time spot to try out? Then I would recommend The Prawnery in Illovo.

I had a sensational dinner there the other day! Dyl and I shared a selection of starters and meze that included garlic mussels in a white wine sauce, rock shrimp with spicy mayo, prawn dumplings and the Swedish Skagen. Personally, the Skagen and rock shrimp were my favorites although everything was delicious.


Next up were 6 queen prawns with a gorgeous garlic and parsley sauce and some buttered asparagus. The food was so delicious I couldn’t stop eating. I had to be rolled out of there 

 .
The frozen margarita was beautiful and generous in terms of its size, but the mojito was my favourite as it was zesty, light and fresh. However, this is just a personal preference. To be honest, I enjoy this restaurant so much that I come through regularly. Oh, and before I forget, the oyster shot is so unbelievably delicious I could drink it as a full-sized cocktail. 

The restaurant is warm and welcoming and the staff well trained, my only issue is the parking. You need to park in a little spot across the road and parking is always R25+ every time I have dinner at this establishment. It doesn’t stop me from coming back though.

Have you eaten at The Prawnery and what were your thoughts?
