Description: Where good food and good times meet... Ideal location adjacent to the Beach Hotel and the Boardwalk Casino and Entertainment Complex. The atmosphere is friendly, airy and chic, with sufficient secure parking and spectacular views of the beach. The food is a combination of the finest, fresh ingredients that in turn create subtle dishes with distinctive flavours and Eastern Cape influence. Ginger is a fusion between elegant chic and contemporary fine fare... A fresh take on fine dining. The Service is top-rated and the food is a taste bud experience.

I had the lamb chops and my husband lamb shank. We both thought the food was spectacular and the service was excellent. We finished off with a dessert of the Chocolate crisp.... More

We ate here as it was attached to The Beach hotel where we stayed for one night. Very nice food and good choice of both food and wines. Reasonably priced and good service with a nice atmosphere

We enjoyed a three course meal paired with different wines and had an absolutely wonderful time with a group of friends. We choose the salmon starter that did not just deliver on freshness, but was presented beautifully. This was followed by the best pork-belly roast I have ever had with crispy crackling. The crème brulee was also great. A true... More

We made a reservation at this delightful restaurant situated in the beach hotel for 30 guests. We were greeted by friendly and professional staff, and sat down to a magnificent 3 course meal (choice from their set menu) The food was gourmet, presented beautifully and scrumptious! Highly recommended.

Food, service, location, price, atmosphere etc. was great in this restaurant just outside the entrance of the nice and cosy boardwalk of Port Elizabeth. Worth a visit but make a reservation!
