We love this place!! We live here and when we decide to go out to dinner SweetWater is our first choice. Every time we go we are pleased with the food and the service and the ambiance. If you are wondering where to eat in Gibsons... don't think about it too much... go to SweetWater.

Every time I visit from out east, I make sure I dine at the SweetWater Bistro. No wonder they are #1 on the Sunshine Coast and #9 in all of BC. The food, service,view, and atmosphere are perfect! I had the grilled tuna and the red snapper. Everything was done to perfection with tantalizing flavor and wonderful wine pairings .... More

Had the pleasure of sitting out on the deck for a lovely glass of wine with a dear friend and enjoying the spectacular panoramic view of Gibson's marina in the warm Spring sunshine! Always very accommodating and opened the restaurant early for us due to our schedule. Just had appetizers, and as is always the case, the food was fabulous.... More

This is one of my favorite restaurants of all time. The chef is from France so of course the food is going to be excellent! Atmosphere and music is superb and hosts Brigitta and Andrew make you feel so welcome. I love this place.

My wife and I were in Gibsons 5 years ago and had a fantastic dinner at the SaltWater Bistro. I knew then that if we ever went back to Gibsons that we would return to the Bistro. And just a few weeks ago we did return to Gibsons and made reservations to dine at the SweetWater Bistro. We were not... More

We had a lovely meal at this restaurant last Friday. We both had the risotto which was delicious. The atmosphere is great and the staff are lovely. I would highly recommend this place to anyone.

My wife and I were on a 3 day mini break last week and wanted to find a nice restaurant for our first night. Trip Advisor rated this restaurant as #1 of 41, so we made a reservation. What a great find. It hit the high mark on atmosphere, meal, service and view. It definitely exceeded expectations, so much so... More
