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!

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...

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 had an appetizer and a glass of New Zealand chardonnay after a long work day. When sensing my hesitance in ordering the right wine for my taste, I was offered a taste before ordering which I truly appreciated. The bistro is cozy, service professional and friendly and the wine selection is carefully chosen.

Real food, made by a talented chef. We were forced to become mindful of every mouth watering bite in this beautiful seeing. Service was top grade, and wine list was impressive. View of the harbor was the icing on the cake.

We had the most amazing dinner at the SweetWater Bistro this weekend, and I can say it made our visit to Gibsons. The appetizers and entrees were perfectly prepared and the desserts blew us all away. The service was fantastic and we loved the atmosphere of the Bistro. We'll be back as soon as we can get return to Gibsons.... More

The food here is wonderful and the service great. We were never rushed. The food is pricey but worth it. Not a kids place but perfect for a romantic meal or quiet "get together".
