We had dined here at least 5 times! The menu is quite large with lots of choices. We love the ahi tuna, portobello mushroom crostini, goat cheese prosciutto salad, eggs rolls, fillet mignon & asian tacos. We have tried close to everything on the menu. The drinks are amazing! Friday nights they have discount martinis. The chocolate lava cake &... More

Ginger's ambiance and decor is surprising for Playa Hermosa. It's modern Asian/Fusion influence makes this a great spot to enjoy drinks and dinner. The food is very good and the staff are friendly and accommodating.

Excellent small plates with a taste of ginger. Knowledgeable waitstaff provide advice in select the best combinations and prompt service. The chocolate dessert was divine. The dining area was like dining in the treetops.

Almost housed in a tree-house. The blond behind the bar speaks accent-free English and probably owns the place. Tapas range from $6 to $11 each and you will need two or three to have a complete meal. The food variety is plentiful and the quality is excellent. Four of us ordered a completely different meals so we could taste the... More

I loved everything about thie restaurant. We could walk from our hotel . The portions were large enough to share and varied enough to keep us coming back. Favorite dishes were ginger rolls, chicken tiki masala, and dumplings. I would eat here every night if I could.. Everything was delicious!

Such a quality restaurant in Playa Hermosa. Great service - the wait staff will make you feel at home and treat you so well. They have great drink selection (I recommend the Mojitico - made with a Costa Rican liquor) and even better food selection. Served as tapas, its hard to go wrong with just about anything. The beef red... More
