First time to visit the much talked about Market bar. A group of us got a seat very quickly for a Friday night. The food was yum and came very fast, there was a great atmosphere. Loved the the building itself, was very quirky. They have an early bird special which we missed but would defiantly visit again.

We went here on a weekday in december for a dinner. Directly when we came in they were not friendly to us, the people who are serving are not proffessional and the service is very bad. We did run away! Please, Don't go here for your meal!

Food wise - don't waste time chatting before you order, they want you in and out and tell you before you sit down that they want the table back in an hour and a half and they come back before that time to tell you that you'll definitely need to finish by then. I get it - they're busy, but... More

What in God's name is going on with the toilets in the downstairs of the Chelsea Drugstore at the market bar?? Men and woman both using the one toilet making everyone feel as uncomfortable as a worm in a birds nest!!! And the toilet doors themselves are impossible to close.... unbelievably not practical!!!!!! Kip..... drinks were very nice tho!!

Very much worth a visit, it's an unusual place. Exclusive and quite busy but once you get a table you will be delighted. We loved it!

The food in Market Bar is fine if you want something that is quick and will fill you up. There's no finesse and the food comes out almost immediately after ordering. The food is by no means traditional tapas but is billed as coming in the style of tapas. Everything I tasted was totally fine but The Port House is... More

This place has good lunch/early bird offers. It's not exactly tapas done authentically but they suffice all the same. The portions are larger than expected and work for a hungry appetite. The atmosphere is busy at peak hours. Does the job.

We had a recommendation to visit The Market Bar and I am so glad we did. It is in a fantastic modern open setting with a vast, well staffed bar. There was a wide variety of options available on the menu and everything was reasonably priced. The food was excellent and staff were accommodating and extremely efficient despite it being... More
