Excellent meal, friendly attentive service without being intrusive, difficult to choose what to eat as I could chosen any of the items on offer. Everything prepared and cooked to perfection will definitely return

absolutely lovely food, beautifully presented, delightful flavours and textures, superb service. This was our first time at the market bistro and we were totally blown away from the top quality cuisine. We will definitely come back for more.

My partner and I visited for our 3rd consecutive NYE visit and this time we took my mum along as she hadn't been to Market Bistro before. Although we've only been once this year (shame on us!) Lucy remembered that my partner had a nut allergy, and the staff made appropriate suggestions. Lucy made a great recommendation on the wine... More

As a party of twelve we all enjoyed a three course dinner . The food was very tasty and thoughtfully presented It was a Wednesday evening and very quiet which was a pity as it resulted in a poor atmosphere.

Attentive and flexible on service (child's portion of fish 'n chips no problem even if not on the menu) and good tasty dishes at the right price. The fixed two course lunch at £12.00 was outstanding value - pork belly main and sticky toffee pudding for afters (or soup as a starter). Five meals and under £17.50 a head with... More

We eat here only a couple of times a year and wonder why we wait so long. Again, we just went with another couple. We have eaten at all the 'restaurants' in Lynn. Some we like very much but Market Bistro it just leaps above the others. The chef is 'gifted', there are no other words to put it. My... More

This was our first visit to the Market Bistro and we were not disappointed. The atmosphere is great, as is the service not to mention the food. The presentation and taste was excellent and we left feeling satisfied that we had eaten in probably the best restaurant in Kings Lynn! We will definitely be heading back when we next visit... More

Firstly we always try to get a table in the front of the restaurant overlooking the market place and St Margaret's Church. Friendly, relaxed atmosphere and service. Great cocktails and the food is well presented, tasty and a good range of dishes. A little gem that we have visited a few times and will continue to do so.
