Best dinner in the Sunshine Coast!

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... read 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...

We visited SweetWater with friends. We had different dishes and all were nice but lacked the zing. For the portion size and familiar dishes it was expensive. Wine list was OK. The view from seating on the balcony is very nice. Weather permitting, book outside.

This is a place that gives it's all to being one of Gibsons top places to eat. The wait staff are always friendly and helpful. The food is very good and the view is to die for.

We dined in this lovely bistro BOTH nights we were in Gibsons last week. We were so delighted with the variety of the menu, flavours and presentation of our choices, the beautiful view and the friendly attentive service of Birgeta our server. This place is a MUST if you are visiting or live in Gibsons....we will be back.

Every time I visit from out east, I make sure I dine at the SweetWater Bistro. No wonder they are #1 on the Sunshine Coast and #9 in all of BC. The food, service,view, and atmosphere are perfect! I had the grilled tuna and the red snapper. Everything was done to perfection with tantalizing flavor and wonderful wine pairings .... More
