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.


Great Food Sep 2019
This place is one of the best restaurants in the area. The selection of mussels dishes is large. Great food and the service is perfect, staff are very attentive. I highly recommend eating here, I also like the TinTin theme and will be back

We have been to Bistro 45 a few times now and it never disappoints. The food is fantastic and the staff are very welcoming and friendly

Amazing food Aug 2019
Came here to have a seaside lunch on a sunny Thursday. Amazing food, amazing service and such friendly staff. Myself and my father both had the Salmon fish cakes and they were simply divine! I would definitely recommend this restaurant. So so tasty and I will be coming here again.

Excellent!!! Aug 2019
Our first visit here and an excellent experience. A varied menu along with the wide range of mussel dishes, accompanied by a good wine list and prolific Belgian beers.
A very friendly owner and waitress make sure everything runs smoothly - we shall be back !!!
