Tucked away up on the hill in the centre of Gibson's Landing, one wouldn't immediately imagine that this would be a high-quality food location, – but it is. The interior is unprepossessing and we sat out on a pleasant deck. Service throughout was attentive, swift and pleasant. We all started with the beet salad, which was lovely. The beets had... More

Went for dinner here with three other couples and everything was fantastic. The service was greet, and they couldn't have been friendlier. We had different appetizers and entrees and it was all delicious. They have a nice wine list with everything you could want. The wine was a bit expensive, but probably no more than most restaurants. This is fine... More

We had dinner outdoors on the deck on a beautiful warm summer evening. The view was lovely and so was the food. We began with an excellent Ceasar salad and then had the special tomato/goat cheese tart that had an exceptionally flaky crust and the shrimp/scallop cakes, accompanied by Joie Noble Wine--an excellent choice recommended by one of the owners,...

This is a beautiful little Bistro located in an old house in Lower Gibsons and I think it is worth the Ferry Ride over........the bus from the Langdale Ferry can drop you almost at the doorstep. We are just a short boat ride away but it is always a good idea to make a reservation and ask for the deck... More

We had dinner here on August 1st and are so glad we found this little gem! We initially had made a reservation (on the recommendation of our B&B) for dinner on the patio but had to cancel due to a late golf tee time! When we finished golfing we decided to take a chance to see if we could still... More

We had dinner here tonight with my in laws. It was our first time. I simply loved that the owners served us as well as took the time to talk to our table. It was like having dinner at a friends. The view of the ocean is incredible. We all had different menu items including the tomato and goat cheese... More

The service at SweetWater Bistro is always exceptional and welcoming. The menu is well balanced with something for everyone, rivaling a fine European Bistro. It's a treat to dine here on special or romantic occassions and the atmosphere is relaxed, friendly, and peaceful all at the same time!

We made reservations to sit outside on the patio. Magical views and outstanding service. The food was fabulous. I loved their art work all over the place. Such a great spot to dine. You won't be disappointed!

I've written a couple of reviews about the food (always incredible) at my favourite Sunshine Coast restaurant, but at my last visit I particularly appreciated the service. Brigitta, the owner, has perfected the ability to welcome all her patrons with a huge, friendly greeting (something you might expect from a small town establishment), yet provide service that would rival any...
