The fish is fresh, the pasta is homemade, and the service is personal. Ginger has received the Fodor's Choice Award for the best restaurant in Tulum every year since 2010! Join us for live music every Wednesday from 7 to 9 pm.

“Good service, good food. But not blown away.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 5, 2013

We went here with our family recently. The service was outstanding but the food was just "good". Maybe I was expecting too much from all the great reviews. I had the chicken with yucatan spices. It was nice and spicy! The mojitos are AMAZING though. We had no music when we were there but we were there early. I really appreciated their friendliness and hospitality though, especially since we had small children with us. I would come back here again.

“Delicious food and live music”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 13, 2013

Best grilled fish I have had with tasty roasted pineapple salsa. Also a very relaxed atmosphere. The live music added to the ambience making it a perfect holiday evening. It is a little hard to find - next to Hotel Aldi!

“Delicious food and solicitous service.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 12, 2013

Excellent fish, delicious guacamole and maybe the best chips I've ever had. The pasta with shrimp was very, very tasty.

Food and service all excellent. Atmosphere is simple, tasteful. On a side street and protected from noise and dust. Flan is delicious.

“Highly recommended”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2013

Great cocktails! Try the ginger mojito. Very friendly bartender with great food suggestions. The chicken thighs were delicious as was the ceviche. The malbec house red was also very good. I really liked the ambience. Fun artwork. Although we also really liked Altamar, I actually preferred Ginger.
