We went here for a group dinner so had the opportunity to taste many dishes from the menu and loved each and every dish we tried ! Amazing bar for pre dinner drinks and the ambience in the restaurant is lovely ! We definitely love and recommend SweetWater - spectacular food and first class service by the staff!

I was invited to a private birthday party of 20 at this restaurant and loved the whole experience. We were given the private dining area upstairs. The entree of bread/bread sticks and dips was good. The mushroom soup was excellent as it was not pureed and I could still taste the fine pieces. It was a full dish by itself.... More

We went there to celebrate our boyfriend birthday on March 23. It was awesome. We booked before coming to see if we can get something gluten free for him since its not easy to find gluten free food in restaurants here. We asked about the pizza and they can do it for us. So we got him pizza and he... More

I love the place. Feel so good inside! The staff is lovely! Always around if you need something. Same goes for the owners (Hans & Stephany) The food is one of the best in Johor! I recommend the carpaccio with a glass of red wine! The price is a bite expensive for the diner... but it's a real good deal... More

Had several meals there: the set lunch and dinner. Both were extremely enjoyable. Set lunch consisted of smoked salmon salad (which I loved) and lamb.... I am generally not a big fan of lamb - but this one changed my mind - the meat was so tender, falling off the bone - best piece of lamb I ever had. Atmosphere... More

Great tapas, tasty and generous portions! Loved the baba ghanoush that was served with warm bread. Had the carbonara with duck and it was delish! Service provided by Mary and TJ was efficient and unobtrusive. You can tell its a good restaurant when the owner rolls up his shirt sleeves and went to work the stoves! Will be back.

Very good service on this Saturday afternoon- food was excellent and very cheap compared to Singapore. Service was good and wine very reasonably priced. Excellent experience.

I visited Sweetwater with friends thrice. First was on a Saturday (dinner). Second and third was on weekdays (lunch). This restaurant was situated in Jalan Serampang, Taman Pelangi. The set lunch was fantastic. They offered starter (soup or salad), main course (pizza or pasta or meat), drink (ice lemon tea), dessert (variety of pastries or cakes), and hot tea or... More
