Market Kitchen and Bar Information
MARKET kitchen + bar sits in the absolute heart of Newmarket at the corner of Carlton Gore Rd and Davis Crescent and enjoys company amongst a ‘cluster row’ of many varied eating & drinking establishments. We offer two interior rooms incorporating a small engaging boutique bar that is very casual & relaxed and an upper dining room for more serious but still informal dining. Then in addition, the courtyard (enclosed and heated in winter then opened up in summer) and footpath seating area allow splendid al fresco dining. Modern European décor with leather banquettes, art deco lighting and wooden floors help create an urban, sophisticated yet relaxed ambience.

If you are looking for somewhere nice to have a special dinner then definitely consider this place.
Ambience: It's a small place with simple and unpretentious decor. The bar is also quite small, but in a more intimate rather than cramped way.
Food:The food is delicious but expect to pay for the quality you're getting. Most mains hit the mid to high $30 mark, though the constantly changing blackboard specials are generally under $30
Drinks: Good wine list and the staff are very knowledgeable about what's on offer and can make good recommendations
Service: Very good service. Attentive but not hovering. Friendly staff.
Overall: A nice place for a special meal and I'd like to it for lunch one day soon, as the lunch specials sound like good value.
What a great place for a long lunch! The staff are super friendly and efficient and the food is delicious and very reasonable. We had lunch on Friday and they were turning diners away, it was so full, but I could see why when I saw the menu - they have $12 lunch specials and there is nothing on the menu over $26.50. We started with Homemade Flat Bread @ $8.50 - one of each Garlic & polenta and Caramelised onion & cheddar and they were very large portions - sharing one between 2 would have been ample. My only suggestion would be to put a brighter light in the bathroom - it's too dark to do a make-up touch up!
Just had the BEST venison I have ever had last week at Market Kitchen & bar. Southern venison on wilted spinach, potato puree, lavender marscarpone, dark cherry & pinot jus. Market Kitchen was busy with a great bustling atmosphere and the service was really on to it. Candice our waitress looked after us so well. Will definitely be back to this little gem in Newmarket
Cute little wine bar and restaurant tucked away in the back streets of Newmarket. Popped in for a quick glass of wine in between meetings and caught some late afternoon sun on the street-side seating area. Recommended.
Great little place in Newmarket! My friend and I arrived late but were greeted by a friendly waiter and served amazing food, wine and dessert.
The place was quiet, the music was pleasant and the lights were low. Ideal place to have a proper catch up with a friend.
The only con is the price but it is definitely worth every cent! Will definitely return.
Nice Food! Would come back again and again. Not great parking near by.
