We saw the restaurant advertised in our local paper and decided to give it a try. It was absolutely wonderful, the staff were very pleasant and we will definitely be going again.

Really impressed with Market Bistro. Went for lunch with my boyfriend and as soon as you step inside you are greeted by a warm sophisticated yet relaxed atmosphere. We sat by an open fireplace on a delightful table with flowers and a lit candle (always a bonus for my dining experience). The staff were friendly and attentive and obviously very passionate about the providence of the ingredients on the small but select menu. I can highly recommend the drinks, in particular the gins - I ordered a sloe gin and lemonade and my boyfriend had an orange and gin and they came in the most ornate glasses with many additional extras decorating the glass. I loved the complimentary taster that was brought to table after we ordered our food. I had the smoked salmon salad to start and of course had to sample some of the delicious homemade sourdough bread that was offered at table. I then had grilled line-caught bream for main. Both plates were absolutely beautifully presented, service was quick despite it being prime time lunch service on a weekend. The flavour combinations were fantastic and this is a very clever menu that marries comforting seasonal food with a twist of elegance and the unexpected. You have the taste and dish presentation of a Michelin restaurant but the relaxed atmosphere and value of a local bistro. The portion sizes were spot on so I could fit in a dessert without feeling uncomfortable and the chocolate mousse was to die for. My boyfriend had the petit fours - though smaller not lacking in tantalising flavours and finesse - a good option for those with smaller appetites than mine still fancying something sweet with coffee served on the side.
I was extremely impressed by this treasure in Kings Lynn and cannot wait to visit again. The caveat being the bill came to half what we were expecting thanks to their lunchtime deal of 2 mains for £17. Thank you for an incredible experience Market Bistro!

We had Saturday lunch - enjoyed beautifully cooked grey mullet and beef. All very tasty. The staff were helpful but discreet. A relaxed and enjoyable experience.

Excellent. Attentive but unobtrusive service by staff who were calm and relaxed. Loved my Sea Bass and Pear starter. Very comfortable surroundings. Great decor. The vegetarian and gluten free additional options we requested were most appreciated. A very positive experience and reasonably priced for such fine food.

A very nice evening. Nice looking, small restaurant. Staff and service were very good. It was a good menu and had a lot of promise. For me, possibly a little limited, would have liked an extra couple of choices for each course.
The food for me was a little bland and portion sizes were too small. Would have been okay if it were a 6 course meal. I even went home hungry! The chocolate dessert was delicious, but for £8 the chocolate parfait measured around 15-20mm wide x 40-50mm tall and long with a large teaspoon size caramel mousse. It was finished in 4-5 spoons. I was really looking forward to it but felt disappointed when I saw the size.
Re: the flavour, I had duck for main with celeriac. Celeriac is a lovely, distinctive flavour and would have been lovely with the duck but it was hidden when created as puree. The duck itself was cooked beautifully. Again with the quail starter, for me there wasn't a stand out, "oh my god" flavour. It was just nice.
All in all, would I go back? Yes, but not in any hurry and once they improve portion sizes. It just felt like there was something missing, something that stops it from being a great restaurant. To describe it in one word. Nice. I like to judge a restaurants value for money by quality of food v price. Out of 5 I would give this a 3.
I ate at a restaurant earlier in the year at the Royal Albert Hall, we paid similar prices (the service wasn't great) but the food was incredibly flavoursome and portion sizes were spot on.
Loved the idea of the little macaroon samples. It felt like you were trying out new ideas on customers which I loved, although I saw some reviews of people receiving these same macaroons 5 months ago! Maybe not new ideas but nice touch.
