A business trip rather than a social visit so dinner for one. The service was excellent, at hand when needed and not in your face when not needed. As for the food the duck parfait was delicious, sufficient for a starter and reasonably priced. For mains the kingklip on couscous. It was delicious - what else can one say, cooked... More

We visited Ginger this past two Sundays. It is lovely to sit outside if the weather is good. The setting inside is more formal, but service is excellent. Gino and Philemon is a asset and we enjoy their friendliness every time. Their Lamb Shank is absolutely the best!! We had the Lamb Burgers this past Sunday, and I might add... More

Very disappointed, Firstly when we arrived at 6.30 there were only 2 people in the bottom section. The maître de sat us right on top of them. When we asked if we could not have another 2-seater elsewhere ( there were at least 4 more options) he insisted they were all pre-reserved. When we left at 8.30 not ONE of... More

Great cocktails, friendly, attentive staff, tasty food and fantastic Lava cake. Not sure if it is expensive by SA standards but the equivalent in UK would have been double! Where can you get a cocktail for less than £3!!

Very elegant restaurant with pleasant decor. Great position with good views over the bay. Had a special request to change the veg & starch for a salad instead of the regulation potato bake. I enjoyed my 4 Karoo lamb cutlets and house salad which happened to be the same price of their encrusted rack of lamb with veg & potato... More

Really one of the best restaurants I've been to in a long time. The area is beautiful and very scenic, situated across from the pier with a lovely view. The general decor is impeccable and very luxurious. The food was amazing and the menu in general would satisfy most people. The service was also fantastic, and as a whole I... More

Maybe we were just unlucky, but we had to wait ages to get our food for all the courses and, despite promises, they didn't make it up to us.... So that's the negative out of the way.... the food really is very good and the friendliness of the staff and the general ambiance make for a generally very pleasant experience.... More

We were staying at the Broadwalk hotel and went for a walk and stumbled on this restaurant. Now coming from Sweden, we are spoiled to high level of cuisine and there are few restaurants that match up to the quality that we are used to, but Ginger sure ranks up there as one of the nicest restaurants for quality food...
