Best of all, for UK visitors the prices are good. Try a medley of carpaccio - wart hog, crocodile and springbok - absolutely delicious. Beef fillet, fantastic. ostrich, tender and tasty.

Ginger was a delightful surprise with elegant style good service and food. Port Elizabeth is not renowned for restaurants but Ginger is a nice surprise. We were happy with the service and food. The ambience was also very nice. Not the best we've had in South Africa but a stand out in Pt Elizabeth.

I had the line fish, which turned out to be kingclip, and it was hands down one of the best meals I've ever had. It was cooked to perfection.
