We visited Ginger twice on our week long visit in Playa Hermosa because we didn't have room to try everything we wanted to try in one sitting! Every single thing that we ate (and we ate alot!) Was out of this world! Definitely worth visiting!

Ginger was our #2 restaurant last week, with The Lookout being tops. Ginger was very attentive to my 85 year old dad, making sure he was comfortable using the stairs to the outer terrace. All 6 of us, ages 9 - 85, found plenty on the menu to appeal to us and enjoyed the variety. Tapas is a great kids... More

Excellent Asian tapas restaurant--each course was better than the last! Our hotel was in Playa Hermosa so we went to Playa del Coco the previous night in search of great food in a "cosmopolitan" environment and met with disappointment at the crowds and mediocre choices, so we were pleasantly surprised when we found this spot five minutes from our hotel....

Great tapas in lovely location. We enjoyed the pumpkin sweet potato rolls, ribs, wings and (for young and old) the requisite chicken tenders which were light and crispy. Nice wine list and a lovely Bourbon Old Fashioned with lots of muddled orange.

Loved all our choices. Should have ordered the appetizers more slowly. The tuna with a lime coleslaw was my favourite but everything was excellent, including desert. Lovely setting, good service. Medium priced. Enjoyed tremendously.

I had the chicken tandoori and my wife had the goat cheese bread, we both had a glass of wine and everything was excellent.
