I love this restaurant and have visited several times. All my experiences have been fantastic. My most recent was in November for my birthday and our entire party were blown away by the quality of the meal and the ambience. Staff are lovely and attentive without encroaching on our privacy and again, the food is outstanding. My mouth waters when... More

I was pleasantly surprised by this intimate and tiny restaurant! I was looking for something different and lo and behold there it is tucked between a fish and chip shop and a Café! The mussels are wonderful with so much variety and flavour, the seafood platter is just superb, staff are fantastic and friendly! Food arrived on time and golly... More

A lovely little restaurant, four of us went for my wife's birthday. Scallops and chorizo were on the main course special but my wife and I wanted mussels as main, no problem they knocked up starter sized scallops for us, nice to see a restaurant that will let the customer have what they want. The mussels were delicious, many different... More

We like this both in the evening for a night out and in the daytime for a family lunch. The fish is excellent, and the fishcakes are great. Well made chips, a good selection of puddings, beers and wines, the only complaint is the service can be a little slow.

walk in for 2 early saturday night. lovely welcome and a decent menu. Room was an odd combination of Children's comic cut outs, what seemed to be schoolroom instructional posters about mussels and some middle earth style seating. All in what looked like a Victorian tearoom. It didn't really hang together well to be honest. But the food was very... More

We visited Bistro 45 on a Tuesday evening during October half term with our 9 year old daughter. The restaurant was crowded but we had booked and were seated immediately. Despite there only being one person serving, the service was extremely good - not the fastest, but given the style of restaurant and the lovely atmosphere/ambiance I would not have... More

This Bistro is on the seafront in Bexhill, we had the set lunch, 2 courses for £7.99, 3 courses £9.99, and it was delicious. The fish pie was the best I have tasted for a long time. The Bistro specialises in Mussels, I will definitely return to try them out.
