Always very accommodating and opened the restaurant early for us due to our schedule. Just had appetizers, and as... read more

This is one of my favorite restaurants of all time. The chef is from France so of course the food is going to be excellent! Atmosphere and music is superb and hosts Brigitta and Andrew make you feel so welcome. I love this place.

My wife and I were in Gibsons 5 years ago and had a fantastic dinner at the SaltWater Bistro. I knew then that if we ever went back to Gibsons that we would return to the Bistro. And just a few weeks ago we did return to Gibsons and made reservations to dine at the SweetWater Bistro. We were not... More

We had a lovely meal at this restaurant last Friday. We both had the risotto which was delicious. The atmosphere is great and the staff are lovely. I would highly recommend this place to anyone.

What a great find. It hit the high mark on atmosphere, meal, service and view. It definitely exceeded expectations, so much so... More

My boyfriend and I went here for our anniversary. It was absolutely delicious and a cozy atmosphere. It's almost like being invited into someone's house in a good way as it doesn't feel snobby there. There is beautiful art on the walls. It's a quiet restaurant, an ideal place to have one on one conversation. My boyfriend and I ordered... More

Took my wife for our 26th anniversary, and everything was wonderful, delicious, and fun. Very relaxed time, with a beautiful view. The staff did all they could, and more, to make our night special (when I asked what they used to make the lemon twist in the martini, we were given the tool!, Now each time I make a martini...
