visited here with a large party. A lovely restaurant, great decor, in a nice area of town (away from the centre) The menu was slightly limited but this changes on regular occasions. Nobody in the party struggled with making a choice. The food is local produce and was presented really well and as described on the menu. If I had... More

A party of 10 of us experienced Market Bistro after several recommendations. The food was beautifully presented but could have done with being slightly warmer but I'm putting that down to serving 10 of us at the same time. You can't beat the quality and presentation of the food in Kings Lynn and surrounding areas - top quality, local produce... More

I didn't quite believe the glowing reviews I'd read for the Market Bistro, and booked a meal for four to find out for myself, and found it truly wonderful - fresh food, beautifully cooked and presented, and friendly, attentive service, what more could one ask for? Little details like complementary savouries while our orders were prepared made this a memorable... More

Why has it taken us so long to visit this local restaurant? We had a delightful three course lunch over looking the Minster and the Saturday Market place. Every thing was delicious and beautifully presented. Beautiful homemade amuse bouche and bread and everything was a feast for the eyes and the tummy!

This restaurant has a lovely location in the historic park of Kings Lynn. We enjoyed a relaxed Saturday night dinner with cocktails containing local spirits. The staff were attentive and the food was lovely.

In an attractive part of King's Lynn. Starters of quail and crab was very good. Mains of halibut was poor, no sauce and too much gnocchi! Desserts sublime. A nice spot and we hope to return soon.

Had a delicious meal here Sat night with my husband. The service was pretty perfect and the food to match. My starter of quail was delicious and the pork belly for main course was devoured by my husband very enthusiastically. The little extra touches such as an amuse bouche were also delicious and gladly received!

From the beginning of our visit to the end we loved every second. We were greeted by very friendly helpful cheerful staff and guided to our table whereby we were presented with a carafe of iced water and at all stages the service was impeccable. We were given a little taster of a beetroot meringue with goats cheese filling which... More

Garden and farm fresh ingredients seasoned wonderfully. I special starter was a beetroot meringue with a goat cheese centre. Melt in your mouth delicious. We ordered two tapas to start, smoked salmon, and assorted meats and pickles. A sourdough bread with whipped butter was also served. Delicious. We then ordered pollock and sea sturgeon that came with mixed vegetables, pea... More
