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

If you like a great view of the harbour, nice surroundings, attentive staff and oh yes awesome food, then you have to eat here. If you can only pick one place to eat in Gibsons, tthis is it.

We have been here before, but I forgot to write a review. The owners really look after you and know their menu and choices inside out. Food is fresh, good portions and big flavours. We loved been able to move out onto the deck for a nightcap before heading home and as usual I cannot fault the food or service.... More

Lovely setting with views over the water out to the mountains. The food was excellent with lots of choice on the menu. The service was friendly and very efficient. I would highly recommend to others visiting Gibsons.

July 23, 2014 my Husband and I had the pleasure and delightful surprise at the SweetWater Bistro. The owners Andrew and Bragina(sorry for the spelling) were on hand, warm, charming and very attentive. Their knowledge of wine was wonderful and the food was outstanding. My husband is a very refined (picky) eater and he said the Lamb was the very... More
