Welcome to Bistro 45

Bistro Restaurant & Mussel Bar in Bexhill-on-Sea

About Us

Bistro 45 is a family run restaurant, and this summer it has come under new management. After 25 years in education, the new owner Mark has set his roots in Bexhill-on-Sea, and is 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.

Good atmosphere. Good music. Good mussels. Very friendly service and excellent food. I would recommend the mussels number 2 and the black cherry crepe. Also excellent Belgian beer.
