We were craving one of those chocolate lava desserts with ice cream one evening last week while in town visiting Playa Hermosa. So we drove to Ginger and ordered two, of course while we were waiting we saw other guests food arriving to the tables (and smelled the delicious smells) so we also ordered some short ribs, and filet with...

This is probably the second nicest restaurant in Playa Hermosa. The quality is great, the staff is friendly, and drinks are good. It's basically a giant tree house! We were there after sunset and enjoyed watching the bats zooming around eating bugs. The bats zipped by so close you could hear their wings! The Buffalo Mozzarella Crostini was one of... More

You can't go wrong ordering anything from the menu, it's always great. There are so many options for the small plates they serve; firecracker shrimp, pork lettuce wraps, samosas... Service is excellent, and if it is your birthday you're in for a special serenade

This is fantastic place to experiance a different interpretation of tapas. Super fresh and tasty! The deck is great as long the weather is good otherwise book a table on the covered terrace. Only negative part was the price which es way above Costa Rica standards, count 60$ per person.

Lovely setting up on a balcony so you are on level with some tree tops. There is a back entrance for people who cannot do stairs. As usual, tapas are not inexpensive. There was a nice variety offered and we liked everything we tried. We did not give 5 stars because this is Guanacaste and the prices were big city... More

This was an interesting concept - Asian fusion tapas?! We had 20 people and they accommodated us quite well and all the time smiling. Best service we had during our 5 day visit. We tried a wide variety of dishes and with the exception of the ahi tuna sushi, all was awesome. The issue with the ahi tuna sushi was... More

A great tapas sharing meal with wonderful friends. If you like to commune and share a tapas style meal with a group, this is the place. Nice porch tables, great service and creative tasty plates.

Ate there with our 2 kids on a Sunday night. Ordered drinks, 9 different plates for sharing and 3 different desserts and each plate was delicious and discussion-worthy. The ambiance can't be beat (we went on a Sunday night- only one other table, great breeze, felt like we were in a treehouse) and the service was so attentive without being... More
