As residents of the Sunshine Coast, we have limited options for many consumer products and entertainment/dining venues. This is okay with us, but when we take guests out, I want to make sure they have a first-class experience, because I really want to show off our neck of the woods in the best light. This is why when going out... More

When you find an out of town restaurant that thrills us with the service and cuisine, it makes me happy that those with great skill still enjoy the small town life. Gibsons is one of my favourite towns on the Sunshine coast of British Columbia. And Sweetwater is my new destination restaurant. Five of us dined on a early September... More

We have been to SweetWater Bistro many times. The service is always beyond our expectations and the food is consistently delicious. We love the owners, Andrew and Brigitta, who go out of their way to make your evening memorable. A wonderful restaurant for couples seeking a romantic and delicious meal.

This upstairs restaurant was a very casual atmosphere with simply divine cuisine. Something I was not expecting. The entire experience was great, service,attention to detail and as mentioned the food was ALL excellent. The view of the harbour was nice. They may think of getting an outdoor stand heater ( they had blankets for diners on each chair which was... More

'Wow' does not do justice to the dining experience we had at The Sweetwater Bistro last night. My girlfriend and I walked into a charming and busy little restaurant, tastefully decorated with an incredible ocean view. The restaurant was full but they were able to accommodate us at the bar. The bartender helped us chose a wonderful bottle of wine... More

Just enjoyed the best meal of our trip so far! My best friend & I are traveling with her 91 yo mother & were looking for somewhere nice. A shop keeper recommended Sweetwater Bistro to us along with Smitty's. Since they were craving seafood we headed to Smittys only to find they weren't open. Thank goodness! The meal we had... More

Here's another 'upscale' Sunshine Coast restaurant that is so overpriced with respect to the quality of the food it makes your head spin. We had appetizers and mains that were nothing more than mediocre to ok. Nothing wowed us except the bill.

While staying over the long weekend in Gibsons we dined at Sweetwater Bistro. Reservations were handled efficiently and our table was waiting on arrival. This small intimate restaurant has the magic touch of attentive service without being intrusive. The menu is perfectly balanced and each item from lamb, which was awesome to fish cooked perfectly was a delight. Friendly staff... More

Several friends who frequent the Sunshine Coast area told me I had to try this restaurant when next in Gibson's so we gave it a shot last Saturday, August 9th while on a fishing trip with several other folks. I must say, the food was great (had dinner), the prices were reasonable, the portions were huge, the wine selection was... More
