If you wish an outstanding dining experience, in a jewel of a restaurant, visit SweetWater Bistro. Superb food, service, and atmosphere, this restaurant has it all, and more! The food is freshly prepared, always creatively delicious, and includes a nightly vegetarian special beyond expectation. A memorable evening out every time. Definitely my favourite.

A rustic structure turned into a restaurant. It has been there close to 6yrs. This has a great relaxing atmosphere.

Owners Andrew and Brigitta... More
