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

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 think this restaurant is proud of their selection of fine wines....however when asked what I normally like (Yellow Tail Shiraz) and the waitress says,... More

I had a great dinner with my son this evening at SweetWater bistro in Gibsons landing. The lamb shank I ordered was one of the best I have ever tasted, my hat goes off to the chef and kitchen staff. The service was equally fantastic and made us feel very at home. Ended the evening with some chocolate raspberry tort.... More

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.
