Excellent food, good selection of local wines. Good service, friendly staff. Prices are on par and easy access to both the hotel and street if you want to walk off your meal.

I first went to Ginger in 2009 and had one of the best Calimari dishes ever. That was an awesome night and so on a return to PE we went to Ginger for both lunch and dinner. Well we stopped to book for dinner the following night and when we saw the lunch offer we were too tempted. As a... More

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.

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!!
