If you really want to enjoy your experience, check out the restaurant website ahead of time and get familiar with the menu. Often making a choice is difficult as the ingredients are so well thought out. Make reservations ahead of time and be sure to go hungry as it's a great experience to go from appetizer to main course.

We loved this place so much that we went back for a second night. I loved the fact that you are eating outside. The atmosphere is wonderful. We enjoyed our meals. It was not your cookie cutter restaurant. Each dish had its own little twist to it. If you go early there is a 3 course deal as well.

Ginger is definitely a place to visit when you're in Curcao. Nice atmosphere, good service and super food.

We ended at this bar by sheer luck, wish we would have found it earlier! Very good food, we really enjoyed it. The service was a bit stiff, but they tried very hard, a bit more flow and the experience would be even better!

I often go here and I love it! Ask for the week special or just order from the menu. You will not regret it!

I am a picky eater and I have to say, the food was amazing!! Both my fiancé and I agreed this has been the best meal we have had on the island!! The restaurant is very quaint with unique tables. Save room for dessert and have the bananas with kahlua and 5 spice ice cream.

We were extremely positively surprised by the really good food, friendly service and nice setting. When we asked what is in one of the sauces (just because we were curious and liked it) the cook came to our table and we had a nice conversation on different ingredients and he gave us to try some other creations. We will definitely... More

Ginger was my husband's choice for dinner one evening in Curacao. We had no problem finding the restaurant and were very pleased with the décor and atmosphere. We were immediately greeted and seated in a corner table with booth seating on two sides and two chairs. There were pillows along the booth seating which made the restaurant feel comfy. The... More

Service: was only average, not particularly fast nor particularly friendly, did not ask for desired doneness of fish, which was a small disappointment Food quality and value: My friend and me both ordered a main dish and dessert. All four meals were great by itself. Though felt the portions were quite... More

A true gem. If you like Asian food you'll live this place. Wonderful combinations of flavors. Location is outdoor seating and comfortable/covered so don't worry about weather. A must dine if in the area.
