We went with some friends who live in Gibsons and told us this was their favorite restaurant. I agree that it is as good as my favorites. Small but varied and well thought out menu. We all had something different and we all loved what we had. The food was very well prepared. Nice wine list. A small and cozy... More

This is where we go when we want a special local dinner. Casual enough for families and lovely for couples. It is especially nice in the summer when the deck is open.

Four of us went for an anniversary dinner at Sweetwater Bistro. Very welcoming! We all had different entrees, from chicken to beef to pork. Along with the scallop and crab cakes, everything was absolutely delicious! The staff was very attentive without hovering over us. We will definitely be back. Btw the accompanying sides were so good!

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
