“Halloumi heaven”
Reviewed March 9, 2014

The halloumi starter was divine, not squeaky at all! Just melted in the mouth, delicious. A great choice of mussels, which were really tasty, and the Banana Mess for dessert was fantastic ( I even got a birthday candle on top)! This is a quirky place with a fun and friendly vibe. We loved the interesting decor. Would definitely go back. What a fab birthday lunch :-)

“Lovely seafood.”
Reviewed March 4, 2014 via mobile

Lovely restaurant. Food is delicious. Service is very good. The only thing that stops me from returning is the seating. Very high backed hard chairs in limited space. I'm not very mobile and found it uncomfortable, others with me liked it. So its just a personal preference.

“Wish we had tried it sooner”
Reviewed March 1, 2014

We were on our way to eat elsewhere but Bistro 45 looked very inviting as we were passing. So we called in on the off chance they could fit us in. Although clearly busy, the young lady front of house found room for us. Service was friendly and helpful. We had starters and shared a large pot of Moules. Delicious! Tasty and well cooked. Why didn't we try this place sooner? Our loss, however we will return. Bexhill needs a place like this. Keep it up Bistro 45.

“Great Valentine's evening”
Reviewed February 27, 2014

Decided to try Bistro 45 as they were offering a reasonably priced set menu for Valentines evening. Despite the gale force wind and rain, the restaurant had a lively warm and friendly ambience. All 3 courses were lovely and particularly the steak was tasty and perfectly cooked. The service was faultless and the friendly staff were very attentive. Great place for lunch or dinner.
