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.


Something for everyone - March 2018
Five of us visited where we all found a great variety of choice on the menu. All being big fish eaters this was perfect. A relaxing atmosphere, very good service and the food was outstanding. Would recommend.
Thank you

Lovely meal - March 2018
We were in Bexhill for a few days away and decided to eat here as the reviews were so good. We weren't disappointed. An excellent meal, good wine, good beer. Great service and very friendly owner and staff. We were made very welcome and will be heading back to Bexhill if only to visit Bistro 45 again!!

A real find - March 2018
We came across this lovely Bistro after the restaurant we had booked into had over-booked. I'm so glad they did. We called in by chance, 6 of us, looking for somewhere on a busy Saturday evening and luckily a table had just been vacated.
The two guys running it were really friendly, the menu had a great choice and the food was absolutely beautiful in presentation and taste. They had a great selection of wine and beer too!! What more can I say. I will definitely call in again when in the area

Beautifully presented and really tasty Belgian food - Feb 18
Using Belgian beer in many of the recipes. The owners were super friendly, and the whole experience was a delight. Highly recommended!

Great Food, Beer & Service - Feb 18
A fabulous range of seafood especially mussels. The Belgium beers were an added bonus too - add that to a really nice ambiance and friendly service you will be guaranteed to have a great experience!
