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

we had a great table outside but were disappointed in the uninspired menu and our dinner choices. Expected more, especially from the prices. The entry area off the sidewalk was being dug up, so not an attractive beginning.
