Best food we had all week. Go there early in the week and you'll probably go back again before you leave! Our meal was a 5 out of 5

We went to Ginger not know what to expect, and ended up having a fantastic meal. There were 4 girls and we all ordered about 2 items and shared and everything was delicious! The service was great, always coming to check if we need another drink, or to fill our water. The atmosphere was really cool, it felt like we... More

Asian fusion, not pretentious, simple but delicious menu. Great little place during the off-season because we were waited on hand-and-foot. Will mark this down for our next visit.

Terrific restaurant in Playa Hermosa. We stayed in the Papagayo area and are so glad that we chose to eat there. Excellent tapas at very reasonable prices. Would recommend to anyone - especially more foodie types.

Food was the best we've found in the past 7 days. We ordered 8 separate items. All amazing. Ate way too much, but we couldn't help ourselves. There were only 2 other tables so the service was amazing.

This was a second trip to Ginger's in Playa Hermosa. And again the service and food was excellent. If your looking for something that's not Costa Rican food in Costa Rica this is one of our favorite places that we have found. If you're going to be at gingers make sure you order the ginger roll, along with the other... More

This restaurant serves little portions I think called bocas which are like tapas and they were very flavorful. It takes a few, in my case four, before I felt like I had enough. They range between $ 6.00 and $ 15.00 so with drinks and nothing else provided like salad or bread it gets expensive. I suggest order a little... More

We loved our experience here,. All of the little dishes we sampled were great, and some were amazing. That said, it was quite pricey for the amount of food served. On the night we were there, the place was full of tourists and/or expats that didn't quite leave us with the feeling we were enjoying a local treasure. Some of... More

This was an unexpected first class restaurant in Playa Hermosa! The food is tapas style and a little on the expensive side for the area - but makes for a great "nice dinner". It has very modern architecture and and inviting atmosphere. The wait staff is excellent as well! It wasn't very busy the night we were there, in fact,... More
