Chef Sha made an exquisite barramundi dish. Visually appealing and tasted really good. Evelyne the hostess was well informed on the dishes and provide a pleasant service overall. Will definitely become a place of pit stop for me.

Nothing really special... Thought will have great experience but just normal food that any other place can be found cheaper.

This is our absolute favorite restaurant in Johor Bahru. The food prepared by talented Chef Hans is always spectacular and served by amazing waiters and waitresses. The daily set lunch menu is only RM41++ for 3 course lunch with iced tea - I could eat...here everyday as the set lunch menu changes daily !! Plus they have an amazing wine and cocktail menu !! Highly recommend Sweetwater.More

Good taste for Past&Pizza off cause, Meet and Fish also. You can enjoy dishes and hospitality. It's good for ADULT space, better not together with noisy kids. Parking space are limited, better use a Taxi or Grab for enjoy enter smoothly and quickly. Price is...higher side, same as hotel restaurant. Let's enjoy in here. Have a goo time! 对过去和披萨的好习惯,见面和鱼也。 您可以享受美食和热情好客。 它对于ADULT空间有好处,最好不要和吵闹的孩子一起使用。 停车位有限,最好使用出租车或Grab进行顺畅快速的进入。 价格较高,与酒店餐厅相同。 让我们在这里享受吧。 有一个粘性时间!More

A staple for lunch when my family comes to JB. RM45++ for appetiser, main course and dessert with ice lemon tea that is even applicable on weekends! End it off with a coffee or tea. Staff is welcoming and attentive. Plus what is there not...to love about the complimentary freshly toasted bread that comes along at the start. If you are looking to indulge, splurge on their wagyu + foie gras with red wine sauce. This is slightly more expensive but a fraction of price that you would pay in Singapore. And it is not on the menu so call beforehand to preorder. Definitely a must visit - for a happy tummy and happy wallet!More

I wanted to celebrate my husband birthday and since we are in JB, I thought we could go to a nice Mediterranean or Italian restaurant and we found this Sweetwater Restaurant. So I booked and we went. The ambiance is nice and soothing and parking...is easy. The only positive feedback is the servers are attentive. What is not good is the food and the misinformation presented by the staffs. I ordered Calamari as starter, mushroom and onion soups, squid ink pasta and cabonara as main courses. The Calamari is almost tasteless except for a little after bitter taste which may have come from the generous herbs thrown in. The mushroom soup was ok but my onion soup is a disaster. I have never had such sweet onion soup before and when I asked the staff, he is very honest and told me that they put sugar... Why do you need so much sugar when the soup will be sweetened by the caramelized onion and beef stock/broth. It is the worse onion soup I have tasted. Then comes my squid ink seafood pasta and it cost RM$79 is I am not wrong. I looked at the pasta and realised that there is no squid ink and just dark grey colored pasta with seafood. I tried the pasta and seafood. The pasta is not cooked properly so it is hard and the seafood is tasteless and I guess they boiled the seafood. I called the server again and he told me that they ran out of squid ink and that is Aglio Olio but how come no one tell me...I was apparently very upset and I told the server to bring it back to cook longer for the pasta to be cooked and add cream sauce as it was tasteless. I didnt want to change the whole main course as I do not believe in wasting food. After a while, my pasta came back. All seafood now de-shelled and the pasta is with cream sauce. After one bite, I asked for salt as it is tasteless still. when the whole dining episode is over, we called for the bill. We were charged for Squid ink pasta instead of Aglio Olio. My husband then told the server and they amended the bill. This whole dining experience is bad. I will never go back there again.More

In my experience good steaks are had to find in this area, however "Sweetwater" is the exception. The steaks here are absolutely fabulous, especially those cooked by Hans the owner. I have eaten there several times and each time it was a real pleasure. Apart...from the fabulous food, the service was always excellent, each time I ate there I was waited on by Mary, who's attention to detail was amazing coupled with a smile that could launch a thousand ships. If in Johor this is one place you should not miss, I'm told that the local royalty also frequent this place, which is a recommendation in itself!More

I'm not too sure. Perhaps best to double check with the restaurant.
