For our first night in La Rochelle, we went to Ginger based on the TripAdvisor recommendations. We were not disappointed. The St. Jacques snackées and Tentacules de Poulp grillées were excellent and I would recommend them. My wife had the Croustillant de thon mi-cuit and...she said it was one of the best Plats that she has had. I would make sure that you have a meal here and make a reservation as it was very crowded on a Thursday evening in October.More

Had a Peruvian ceviche and an Argentinian Picanha here and both were right on the spot. Quick and friendly service combined with economic prices make this a hot shot restaurant.

Nothing to say about the food, the quality of the products and dishes was definitely there however the experience was spoiled by the appalling service. The fellow in charge of reservations was prioritizing sitting his friends (who came without bookings) instead of customers showing on...time resulting in clients waiting 45min for their reserved tables. The waiters were extremely unorganized and forgot the neighboring table completely, poor couple arrived before us and received their starter while we had our main courses. It’s a shame this place is badly managed because the food was really good!More

a wonderful restaurant in a city full of good restaurants - this is a treasure not to be missed. With inside and outside seating to suit the weather and season, Ginger serves up a refreshingly exotic and different range of dishes. Three of our party...had poke bowls whilst I had filet d'agneau - all were excellent! We rarely give 5 stars in our reviews but Ginger fully merits each and every one of them!More

Friendly staff, but too many tables for them to handle. Almost impossible to get extra drinks. Starter and main courses were good, the deserts were a disappointment. Too few, and poor choice of cheeses. And the sweet desert also didn't score well with us. The...served wine was also not spectacular.More

This was a discovery by chance and a very pleasant surprise. Nice setting (a bit noisy), very friendly and smiling staff and truly excellent food. Ibtrued the crab cannelloni to start and the beef with chimichurri to follow. My friend went for the ceviche and...then the calamari. We were both very happy with our choices. Good wine as well. Recommend it!More

On a two night stay in La Rochelle, we were hoping that our second evening dinner would not fall short of the delights of the previous day, for which we had provided a very complementary Trip Advisor review. Happily the evening at Ginger was equally...outstanding ! Being a Saturday we reserved our table for two, which proved wise since the restaurant appeared fully occupied. Our table was at the far end of the room, up against the glass windows to the kitchen. Thus we saw all the activities of the kitchen crew as a sort of added "cabaret", and I feel obliged report on that first of all. These often under-appreciated workers were an absolute delight to watch, as they performed complex preparations with almost ballet-like choreography. Every dish was prepared with minute attention to detail, artistically arranged, and the range of freshly cooked vegetables, fish and meat that we saw entering and leaving the ovens showed that this was a place that reflected the value of good ingredients. The kitchen staff were calm and good humoured, worked as a team and on occasions brought a dish into the restaurant to see the delighted reception by the diners. Full marks then to the Ginger kitchen team! But front-of-house staff were also delightful, and although very busy spent time to engage with us during the meal. And the food ? The menu card I guess is not regularly changed, but why should they since the dishes that we tried were so good that when we return, as we surely will, we would be tempted to take the same choices. A highlight was a sparkling tuna tartare entrée with salad, livened with a spicy ginger dressing and very tasty and unusual crispy rice base. Our main course was pintade, again with fresh vegetables and a gnocchi accompaniment. Dessert a rich and varied chocolate layered delight. Should also mention our enjoyment of the Ginger house cocktail that kicked off the evening. Unfortunately we live some 80 km from La Rochelle, but finding Ginger gives us more reason to return more frequently to this great city.More

Good quality of the food, taste of the starter was great but just correct for the main dish. I think it does not deserve the price applied. I was expecting more work on the main dish which was octopus.More
