My daughter and I went to Costa Rica not on vacation but to learn. As we walked through the town of Torturguero, we were approached by a young local man that attempted to rob us.

The owner who was serving us is a really nice guy, knowledgable about the food and the area. The food arrived quickly, was well presented, made with quality ingredients and most importantly was very tasty. Treat yourself to a mango daiquiri to get you into the mood. The restaurant is located right on the beach.

Food was delicious, and frozen cocktails. However, was slightly pricey compared to other local places but was worth it for a phenomenal meal.

Ate here with 2 friends while in Costa Rica. All food was full of flavour and would recommend this to all! Was one of the more expensive places that we dined but would still recommend this.

After two weeks of bland food, always rice and beans, we found Wild Ginger. Excellent food. Good variety. Smoothies are out of this world. Service a bit slow but it's "Costa Rica time". I can't recommend this place enough ! Fantastic
