Perfect coastal cozy atmosphere. A meal I will remember for a long time. Talented and unpretentious servers. This was a 10 out of 10 experience!

Wonderful freshly prepared gourmet food in the heart of downtown gibsons. A must check out, slightly pricy but well worth it. Make a reservation as minimal seating.

We had an excellent meal at SweetWater Bistro. The atmosphere was very friendly, with most of the customers familiar with the restaurant and the owners. We had the lamb shank and beef bourguignon and enjoyed them both. It was quite busy considering we came early and it was mid-week in December.

We've eaten at some very good restaurants all over the world, and I'd rate the meal that we ate tonight as one of the best meals I've ever had. The service was excellent as well. This is now one of my favourite restaurants. If I lived in Gibsons, I know that I would be eating here on a regular basis.... More

Sweetwater Bistro is the gem of fine dining in Gibsons BC. Tucked away in the upstairs of an old house, this is one restaurant that should not be missed. Don't be fooled by its size folks as the menu packs a varied selection of delicious appetizers entrees and tantalizing desserts. There were 9 of us celebrating a birthday and each... More

Much like our first. Nice reception, good-plus service, fine menu and a very capable kitchen. SweetWater is doing some re-building in front, but don't let put you off. Upstairs is a treat!

We had a lovely table at a window, and ordered steak, chicken, lamb shank and seafood linguine. The steak, chicken and lamb were wonderful, the steak in particular, cooked to perfection; the linguine, undistinguished and overpriced for what it was. I had just recently had a superb seafood linguine at the Old Boot in Sechelt, laced with prawns, shrimp, fish,... More
