Taqueria by POTL Reservations


Prawn on the Lawn’s Taqueria is inspired by the bustling street food of Mexico City and the chilled vibes of Holbox. When Rick and Katie Toogood visited Mexico in 2017, they were blown away by the culinary delights they found. They’ve been wanting to open a seafood Taqueria restaurant ever since, so it’s exciting to see that dream become a reality.

While our dishes borrow from the format, each dish will have its own POTL twist. Think fresh Cornish crab, day boat fish and local, seasonal vegetables (instead of more traditional ingredients like avocado, refried beans and mole).
