Welcome to Bistro 45

Bistro Restaurant & Mussel Bar in Bexhill-on-Sea

About Us

2019 sees Bistro45 entering a new chapter. After 25 years in education, Mark has now spent 18 months living his passion for good food, good ambience and good service.

An intimate bistro and mussel bar nestled on the esplanade in Bexhill-on-Sea, with fantastic views across the English Channel, Bistro 45 seats 34 guests inside with outside seating for a further 8.

Our menu features fine locally sourced food and a weekly changing specials board offering the best from this week's market. We have just launched our new Lunch Bites menu for the autumn.

Whether you are seeking fresh fish and seafood - we offer a menu of mussel recipes - or local meat or vegetarian dishes, then look no further.

If you have food intolerances please be sure to inquire, as all of our food is prepared on site - we have yet to find a customer we could not accommodate.


Bexhill’s Best Kept Secret Apr 19
This restaurant is not just for seafood lovers. We had terrific service with all meals served piping hot. Being small it has a special ambience. Nothing seems to be too much trouble for Mark the owner who gives you the warmest of welcomes

Mussels Galore Mar 19
If you enjoy mussels this is the place to visit with over 20 different sauces to accompany your mussels. Wash down with various Belgian beers it is well worth a visit. Varied menu also available

Relaxed atmosphere & lovely food Feb 19
My wife and I booked a table for our anniversary having eaten here last year and had another wonderful evening. The young lady managing the front of house was excellent and the food was incredible. Both the sea bass and the mussels being cooked to perfection. Thank you Bistro 45, I look forward to our next visit
