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.

Yum yum, ginger ice cream

We went to Ginger on a "relived first date" (because no first date is perfect, we recreated ours). Ginger was the perfect setting. The ambience, food and service were great. We had the beef medallions that are flambéd tableside, which was quite an experience. They were tender and served with a... read more

We went to Ginger in late April with a group of friends that we met whilst in South Africa and after hearing such positive reviews, we decided to visit. Ginger was thoroughly enjoyable, from the high dining food to the luxurious restaurant design but still remained very reasonably priced. It also has a unique variety of meats, like Ostrich and...

My pork belly was out of this world. Tender and fell apart. The crackling crackled. My wife had the Fillet Bastille, so tender and full of flavour. You have to try the chocolate lava cake with peanut butter ice cream. Will definitely go back.

It's not often that you find gems like this. Awesome food. Incredible atmosphere. A fine dining experience. Awesome service. It's not often that your waiter knows details of your meals preparation. Well here's a recommendation for Zen who was highly efficient and added immeasurably to our dining experience. I can highly recommend the Lamb Rack and Pork Belly. Both cooked... More

Ginger is a trendy restaurant with a good choice out of the menu. The only problem was the aiconditioning but they solved it by switching it off
