Not sure if it's me or my taste of food. But all meals ordered were half cooked. We had to ask for it to be recooked. The price didn't do justice to the value of the meal. A bit on the high price for under cooked food.

Decided to call in today for lunch par deux having never been before. A lovely welcome and very comfortable surrounding greeted us. The waiter was attentive and allowed us sufficient time to choose 2 courses from the lunch menu. Our 2 courses were quite sublime and if a food description can be deemed esquisite, this was it. I had slivers... More

Visited this restaurant on New Year's Eve with family the food was excellent. Equally as good as London restaurants, better than a lot of them. Service was very good. I was not drinking alcohol and they had a big choice of non-alcoholic drinks. The food is source locally, and so are the ingrediants for the soft drinks.

A one night stop in Kings Lynn and a search of TripAdvisor led us here on and January Wednesday night. Welcomed warmly, friendly atmosphere, attentive service, superb food and very reasonable prices. A real gem and we thoroughly enjoyed our evening.

We had the whole restaurant to ourselves, about 40 of us. We had to pre book our meals so I went for the turkey dinner. They had plenty of staff on duty so the service was fast and the food wonderful, well presented and very tasty. we have already booked again for next year, enough said

Lucy, Richard and their excellent team continue to go from strength to strength, and it is fantastic that their considerable efforts have recently been recognised by the Michelin Guide, The Financial Times and The Times. Their ever growing band of loyal customers continue to vote with their feet and it was reassuringly difficult to secure a table, but Lucy went... More

My wife and I visited the Market Bistro for the second time on New Year's Eve. This time we were accompanied by two other members of our family. On each occasion we were delighted with both the food and the service. This restaurant, with its latter emphasis on fine dining, has become a real asset to Kings Lynn.

We came for dinner on New Years Eve with our family, the menu was very simple but contained everything we required as far too often there can be too much choice.My husband and I both had the mackerel with fennel tea which was very fresh and light perfect for a starter,then we both had the beef which was beautifully cooked...

Heard a fair bit about this place and we finally tried it out for a lunchtime meal. Place was pretty full, doesnt look much from the outside or indeed the inside, but its pleasant enough. Staff friendly and attentive throughout, no problems there. The food was alright, nothing that stood out, nothing that was poor.. I had the beetroot starter... More

We went on a cold misty atmospheric day and luckily were able to park outside. We had high hopes having read the reviews and we were not disappointed but not overwhelmed. King's Lynn could be a foodie destination as many 'Chelsea-by-Sea' second-home owners drive past it. It is a major historic town centre (ignoring the usual mall) and this restaurant... More
