We really enjoyed our visit to Ginger. The place has a really nice atmosphere and the food is great. We ended up getting a mix of appetizers that were all amazing as was the Jamaican bread pudding and cocktails. Looking forward to going back to try out more of the menu.

Outdoor seating. The service was excellent. The only thing we disliked is that the people sitting at the table next to us were all smoking. Although we had a baby with us they did not seem to care.

We ate here in late November 2014. The atmosphere was wonderful, all (or at least most) of the seating is outdoors and in a courtyard in between buildings. Very welcome mix of Asian and Caribbean cuisine, everyone in our party enjoyed their meals. Not our best meal of the trip, but we were definitely impressed and would eat here again.

This restaurant looks really upmarket cool. The outside seating, decor and soft music works. Service was fast, friendly and efficient. The food was gorgeous and inventive - try the peanut soup, tandoori chicken and bread pudding and you shouldn't be disappointed! Loved it.

Nice place in the great part of Willemstad called pietermaai. Indian Asian and Caribbean food combined. It was a little expensive for what you get but worth it when your visiting Willemstad.

Our favorite meal on the island and we've been here a week. The atmosphere is shipwreck chic and super comfortable. Not touristy in any sense. Started with the mixed platter appetizer and ginger mojitos. Both were delicious and a great way to start the meal off. My husband had the salmon and I had the lemongrass shrimp soup. Great prices...

Au contraire to our earlier visits the ordered meal this time was very disappointing. We asked if the cook could prepare an equal nice veggie dinner like before but he simply refused (by the way it does not take a lot of extra preparing time). We ended up with a meal from the menu card which consisted of small potato... More

The smell surrounding it called us into Ginger and we weren't disappointed. Try the chefs wok it was great. The Indian fish cakes were fabulous but a large portion. S&C J&D from Newcastle upon Tyne England

A unique mix of Asian and Indian food on the menu. The dishes are beautiful and filled with flavor. The lemon grass soup with coconut was incredible! The sateh was also very good and all of the food being served to other tables looked incredible.
