Lovely setting with views over the water out to the mountains. The food was excellent with lots of choice on the menu. The service was friendly and very efficient. I would highly recommend to others visiting Gibsons.

“Hidden Gem of Gibson's BC”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 July 2014

July 23, 2014 my Husband and I had the pleasure and delightful surprise at the SweetWater Bistro. The owners Andrew and Bragina(sorry for the spelling) were on hand, warm, charming and very attentive. Their knowledge of wine was wonderful and the food was outstanding. My husband is a very refined (picky) eater and he said the Lamb was the very best he has EVER tasted. The ambiance was lovely, choice in music was very enjoyable. And location was very easy to find. We will definitely be returning to this eatery. Thank you to Andrew and Bragina for a lovely evening. Deborah and Gary Hayes

“Love this place!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 July 2014

The food here is fantastic! Love the beef tenderloin. My husband and I have never had a meal we did not thoroughly enjoy. The service is top notch and so is the atmosphere. The Sweetwater is by far our favorite in Gibsons!

“Amazing food, outstanding service!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 July 2014

Went for a nice dinner to celebrate our 20th Anniversary and we were not disappointed! The view from the deck was beautiful and meal was outstanding. We started with the soup and brie appetizers which were really good. The portions where a nice size and very well presented. The main was the seafood pasta and the beef tenderloin. The seafood pasta included scallops, shrimp chorizo sausage and chicken with a cream and fresh dill sauce. The beef tenderloin was served with sauté vegetables and scalloped cheese potatoes. Both were prepared and presented to perfection. We finished with the chocolate raspberry tort and it was very rich with a creamy smooth texture. The staff were very friendly and knowledgeable. The meal was one of the best we had ever had. For a special occasion this is a great place on a warm summer night!

“Not Too Impressed”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 June 2014

Nice seaside cottage type decor, good ocean view, nice background music, but although the food reads well on their menu, the real thing was quite unexciting, we expected much better when paying fine dining prices. I think this restaurant is proud of their selection of fine wines....however when asked what I normally like (Yellow Tail Shiraz) and the waitress says, "Ppff, we cook with that!", I found this to be extremely rude, most people aren't wine connoisseurs and should not be treated poorly for it. We won't be back nor will we recommend it to anyone.
