Could not wait to review this place. Food really tasty, good quality ingredients and well thought out dishes. Staff are also very pleasant which makes for a fantastic meal all round. Saw a couple of reviews that said the portions were small and the restaurant cramped but neither are true. I was too full for desert - the sea bass... More

Visited Market Bistro with my husband for Valentines dinner the food was outstanding, a set menu for the occasion which proved to be absolutely delicious. The service was as we've come to expect first class and nothing was too much trouble for the obviously well trained team of young waiters and waitresses. Owners should be very proud to deliver such... More

Sat night family dinner. Skipped starters but nibbled on some warm focaccia & some cold Italian meats, which were nice. I had pork tenderloin for my main & it was wonderful. well cooked, well balanced. The boys had beef rib for main & it looked lovely too. Staff were attentive, considering it was a bus sat night too. Couldn't fault... More

A great little hidden gem in KL. Great contemporary food, the wine is a little on the pricy side but worth it for the nice experience we had. We'll be back for dinner after enjoying this treat of a lunch.

We have been to about 100 restaurants in the last year in the USA Europe and the Caribbean and although food was superb it was the smallest portions we have ever experienced anywhere If you go in hungry you will come out hungry and we were a little rushed with the dinner ?

We have visited the Market Bistro a few times since moving to Kings Lynn. The food is usually very good and, when it isn't, it's superb. We last visited on New Year's Eve and got what we expected i.e. a great meal in a lovely building with friendly staff and owners. It's just a really nice place to go. Tip... More

My daughter took me for a treat for my birthday. We went at lunchtime and chose from the 2 for £17 main & dessert. The food was really delicious and great quality- my daughter chose Sandringham red poll beef & I chose 'fruit pig' rare bred pork tenderloin with side of chanteney carrots, honey & thyme. For dessert my daughter... More
