Great experience

We have eaten here a number of times over the years, and we had another excellent meal here last week. Food was very well prepared and presented. Overall a great experience, again.

Before I went to Ginger, I was told that it was one of the premium restuarants in Port Elizabeth. It was neat and clean, but no particular atmostphere. The service and food were run of the mill - nothing special.

Somehow this just does not make the grade you expect. Overpriced, reasonable food served by waiters who have delusions of grandeur. We have eaten there three times now and won't be back

Went for dinner during port Elizabeth stay. Service very good very friendly staff. Had the chateau briand which was top notch and where else but South Africa could you have it for £14 for two and there was a massive portion. We had a very nice dessert and a good bottle of red wine. A great experience .

The napkin on the table had old food and could see have been used and not washed. The bread knife that comes with the bread has been used, the snail stater was horrible. The waitress... More

The service was great and the food was amazing. We tried the line caught fish, rack of lamb and steaks. Everything was cooked to a very high standard and the desserts... More
