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.

Reviews

A GENUINE DELIGHT Sep 18
This little seafood restaurant- fear not ye meat eaters, plenty of choice for you - is a real gem on the seafront of a relaxed little town. Recently under new ownership, the chef\owner has kept, and if anything improved, the choice and the quality. Mussels are the point here, forty or so recipes, I'm still working my way through, but I am always too distracted by the luscious sauce and fabulous flavours in the sea bass fish pot to make much progress. The Belgian beef in beer - have I mentions the amazing Belgian beer list , just go for those alone- is rich an savoury, a real treat. I could rave on about the food, but !UST mention the people, friendly,interested in your opinions, fun. The chef came out to find out if the heat in the Thai style fish pot was right. He needn't have worried, it was perfect. Its a good thing we don't live there, I'd be the size of a house and as poor as the proverbial church-mouse. Happy though!

MUSSELS STOP IF THAT IS WHAT YOU LIKE Sep 18
If you like your mussels more than 10 different ways this is a great place small so try to book before you go or pop in book and then go off for an explore!

OUTSTANDING Aug 18
Three of us ate here (2 adults and a teenager) on a busy Wednesday lunchtime. We were greeted by the owner, a quirky little man named Mark who was very friendly. I had a huge portion of beautiful fish goujons with crispy frites. My wife had sea bass with lovely veg and the young fella had a beef stew the name of which I can't remember but all 3 meals were top class. Excellent value too.
