We ate here on Saturday 27th for dinner, the food was beautifully presented and the service was excellent. The food was delicious, I'd definitely visit again if I was visiting Kings Lynn.

Visiting King's Lynn on frequent business this has to be my preferred restaurant. The food is amazing, the staff polite & helpful with the décor & atmosphere providing an excellent dining environment. Whilst not excellent value for money, it does make for a lovely treat. I had the salmon starter followed by a chicken Caesar salad coupled with the recommended... More

We booked in at short notice, they'd had a cancellation so fitted us in. We enjoyed the food and the staff were very helpful. We would recommend.

We were all quite looking forward to trying out this new restaurant as many people had recommended it to us however unfortunately it didn't live up to the standard we were expecting.

When visiting Kings Lynn we have found difficulty in locating really enjoyable places to eat, so the Market Bistro is a delight. The service, food and wines were all excellent. The truffle custard starter was a sensation, the onclet of beef was perfectly cooked melt in the mouth and wonderfully complemented with the seared little gem, and other Mediterranean flavour....

What they don’t tell you is that this burger is one of the most delicious bundles of heaven you will ever taste, succulent and the bun was so soft it melted away. This place is a hidden treasure! What’s in it: red poll beef, cheese, bacon jam, spiced ketchup, skinny fries, slaw! yum.

We ate here on a Friday night and enjoyed the atmosphere, good service (staff were attentive and friendly) and excellent food. Lots of local ingredients with interesting twists, well cooked and presented.
