Upstairs in the 'pink house' in the heart of Gibsons Landing. Large deck overlooks the harbour and charming street, but the food is what locals and visitors come back for.

True confession - Each of my two visits to the Sweetwater Bistro turned into a treasured dining experience. Think of the elegance of a Parisian resto combined with the comfort of dining at the home of good friends. Honestly, the food, service, location and atmosphere are all exceptional. It's owner-operated by people with great taste and who care a lot.... More

There are a number of restaurants on the coast offering a wide range of quality, tastes and price, many rather boring and unmemorable I am sad to say. After dining at Sweetwater this week for the first time, I can definitely say it is the best appetizer, main course and dessert I have had in a long time. It is... More

A small little restaurant that has a calm and quaint atmosphere. The food was delicious, although the menu is small, there's something for everyone. The service was friendly and our desert was amazing, we almost ordered two. Would recommend to anyone staying in the area.

although there were offers like Boeuf Bourgignon and other delicous things not on the menu, we sticked to salads, fish of the day and a tenderloin followed by delicous desserts. everything fresh and very good cooked, the actual chef is french and cooks very modern, absolutely not greasy.

We live on the Coast and always appreciate getting a babysitter and going to our favourite restaurant--SweetWater Bistro. We love the intimate atmosphere which is classy and chic, without trying to be pretentious. Sometimes in a small town, they don't get it just right, but here, no problem, you would never know you weren't in the big smoke across the... More

We have never been to the SweetWater Bistro and had it not been for an error made by one of the other restaurants in town, we might not have been there tonight. I phoned in a reservation, indicating that it was our anniversary and when we arrived and identified ourselves were greeted with a, "Happy Anniversary" by Brigitte (hope that... More

Every detail here is carefully considered. The food is perfectly delicious, and you can tell that nothing less will be acceptable. I had the special appetizer (a tarte with shitake mushrooms, goat cheese, smoked salmon and greens), the roasted chicken, and the cherry cheesecake. Absolutely wonderful. When one little slice of my potato wasn't cooked thoroughly enough, I mentioned it... More

We have never had anything but a very good meal at Sweet Water Bistro, but the meal we had this week was simply the best, from start to finish. I had the brie as a starter and my friend had the carrot ginger soup. Both excellent choices. For a main course I had duck that was exquisite. The breast portion... More
