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.

We visit the bistro quite regularly, its definitely one of the best places to eat in our area. The Belgian beer is strong but much tastier than your regular lagers. We always feel very welcome and are never rushed. The staff are always friendly, relaxed and welcoming.

When visiting our daughter in Bexhill we decided to eat an evening meal in town. We came accross Bistro 45 and what a great find that was! Everything from the quirky interior, to service and of course fantastic food was spot on! We are looking forward to coming back and bringing friends.

This was a real treat - excellent menu, laid-back atmosphere and very friendly and helpful staff. A huge choice of Belgian beers and sensibly priced wine list. We found this bistro on our first night in Bexhill and returned on both remaining evenings. Enjoyed all our meals - muscles a speciality but a good choice of other dishes too.
