We had dinner here on a week night. This is a tapas bar with sushi and local cuisine. We had 4-5 different tapas and were only disappointed with the Dorado Dorado. Fish McNuggets with a good chipotle sauce. The wine list was extensive but pricey. The atmosphere and service were terrific. Very romantic. Overall, recommend.

Great location, very neat vibe and a world class restaurant off one of the Main Streets in Playa Hermosa. The patio is enormous and feels like it's right in the trees. Great ambiance with candles and Cmas lights. The food was spectacular and we tried many of the dishes. The ribs were a surprise hit as was the coconut cream... More

This is a great option in the area if you want to eat something different. All the dishes that we tried where really good and the restaurant is very nice. Recommended!

Ginger is located in a beautiful setting and the tapas are phenomenal. The owner is doing it all right. Great place for a quiet couples dinner or for a group. Highly recommended!,,

Lovely food, great service but same price as El mangroove our local 4 star hotel. It is based on the tapas idea except it is Asian fusion. The wines by the glass were divine. So all in all excellent but don't go expecting a cheap local restaurant. £75 for 2 with 5 glasses of wine. Well done gingers!

enjoyed a fine meal, and the best part of a tapas meal , sharing of tastes, all were wonderful, of the different dishes ordered within our party of four there were no complaints. Also had a great Argentine Malbec from the Salentein vineyard in the Valle De Uco which we visited in 2013 Nothing better than dining under a tropical... More

Outside eating, tapas and drinks. We didn't make it on Friday for martinis, but I had an amazing mojito and the food was great. I didn't expect to eat asian influence in Costa Rica, but was pleasantly surprised. Good vegetarian options too.

The food is average and would have a bad review in a big city. Presentation of the food and atmosphere would be great if it wasn't for the view to the parking. The price are more than expected in a small touristic area.
