I went to this restaurant a couple times for dinner on my vacation. There were so many delicious options. The red curry beef was just so so so so so good. Cannot recommend that dish enough. The Mongolian ribs come highly recommended as well. You have to have the pineapple and jalapeño margarita, it was the best cocktail I have... More

If you enjoy tapas, this is the place for you. There's a wonderful, varied selection to choose from. They are prepared to perfection and served with style. What nice is vegetarians, gluten intolerant diners have menu choices. The chocolate lava cake is a must have.

Excellent interesting tapas near Playa Hermosa. The seafood was especially yummy. Expensive, but worth it.

Ginger serves everything tapas style. I had the vegetable stir fry and filet mignon. The filet melted in your mouth and the vegetable stir fry was crispy with a tasty sauce.

A nice change from the other meals we were having. Sit outside on a big deck (street view, but feels quiet and secluded). Food was great; very fresh and creative. You can dress up a little if you want.

We had a terrific dinner at Ginger. There were 5 of us including 3 children. Everyone loved it! The staff was very friendly & the food was delicious! Unfortunately we are heading back to the states tomorrow otherwise we would go back.
