Description: Bistro 45 is nestled on the esplanade with a fantastic view of the channel and is run by a brother and sister team. The menu is a mix of modern british with a retro twist all freshly prepared using the finest locally sourced ingredients. The starters range from seared scallops to homemade soups and pate, the main courses include Sirloin steak, Fresh Moules cooked in 45 different sauces and vegetarians need not feel left out with crepes stuffed with 7 different vegetables and to follow a delicious creme brulee or a melting chocolate cake with hot chocolate sauce may be just the thing to finish off your meal. The food is accompanied by an extensive menu of continental beers and for the wine lovers there is a list of fine wines

This place has really bucked up in recent months, front of house staff change has much improved the service. The seabass fish pot is fabulous. I keep going back just for that but everyone who joins me has great food too. Would give the deserts a miss though.

Pomegranate and elderflower topped with ice and gin. Yum Yum! Love Bistro's mussels, excellent service always and overall not too bad on price. I recommend the bistro beef - tender beef stewed in Belgian beer, served with leek mash and seasonal veg. I love coming to this hidden gem in Bexhill.

Excellent food, excellent service, excellent ambiance, what more would you want .
This is my second visit and they came up trumps each time.
This restaurant has a great menu, and you will find it difficult to choose, I can recommend their Mussels cooked in any sauce you can think of.

The weather in bexhill was terrible in the morning, but had cleared by lunchtime, although the wind was strong and the waves dramatic. Bistro 45 is the ideal place to enjoy the view.
I had my usual belgian beer, Trplie Karmeleit and the main course special of smoked haddock with leeks and spinach in a cheesy sauce soaked up with french bread. Delicious!
The service, as always,,was friendly and the atmosphere was relaxed, with many diners commenting how much they enjoyed their meals. That's good because this is my favourite place to eat and drink in Bexhill and I want it to do well.
