We shared two salads, Calamari and Chorizo and Beet and Goat Cheese. All were wonderful and I highly recommend. We also choose two specials (see photos) and the seafood linguini. All delicious and well priced. $168 for three with wine. Food was perfectly cooked, amazing sauces and well presented. Great service as well! To cap it off a nice view... More

You'll see from other pictures on TripAdvisor that this restaurant has good food and good atmosphere. Actually, it's better: it's great. Best lamb sirloin I've had, vegetable accompaniment I liked (and I'm not crazy usually about vegetables), fresh tastily and artfully prepared food, and wonderful desserts; and good drinks too! Service is top notch and having debated a couple places... More

Had a lovely dinner at the Sweet Water Bistro on Saturday night. My mother is a devoted local patron and our greeting is always warm and personal. It is a treat to have such professional service done in such a relaxed atmosphere. The evening was a little cool so we chose to eat inside. There were several tables of diners... More

My husband and I always choose Sweetwater Bistro for a special evening. Brigitta and Andrew make you feel like a family member. We settled on Brigitta's recommendation of a bottle of Joie and started with the tomato tart and baked brie appetizers. Hubby chose the steak and my favourite is always the fresh fish with risotto. We dined Al Fresco... More

My wife and I could not stop talking about the food(amazing), the service ( the owners were the servers ) was matched by the view( must ask for the patio if you can get it). if you are wanting to treat yourself to a big city dinning experience but in a boutique, small town location - you must eat here!

This small restaurant presents a rather unpretentious facade, situated on the top floor of an older house in Gibsons. The service is friendly, casual yet professional, and the food was excellent. The shrimp and scallop cakes were uniquely tasty, accompanied by a yummy mango slaw. My duck special (braised duck leg) might have been improved with a less heavy sauce... More
