My husband and I had dinner here on our last trip to CR in September. The wine selection was awesome, and the tapas were amazing!!! Our favorites were probably the ahi tuna, the salmon rolls, and the signature dessert! The service was excellent, our server was so friendly, the atmosphere was to die for, and the food spectacular! Not a... More

The food is really good here. Some of our favorites were the filet mignon, Asian tacos, ginger roll, Ahi tuna and Mongolian ribs. From a cost stand-point I recommend that each person in your party pick a couple of things they would like to try and only order that so you can kind of keep track of the cost as... More

I've been here a couple of times and can highly recommend it. Can get very busy at times as many others appreciate the fine food offered. The place feels like a tree house and the service is fast and friendly. You won't be disappointed.

We go to Playa Hermosa about once every 3 weeks. Every time we stop at Gingers. This is a great restaurant. They specialize in bocas, appetizers. Many times when were in playa hermosa we go here several times. Can't recommend it enough. My favorites are firecracker shrimp or spring rolls to start off than the filet. GREAT PLACE

The food and atmosphere were amazing. The 6 of us shared 12 tapas and all of us greedily ate every morsel. We were stuffed.

We have gone there a few times and it is good but PRICY. With little choices in Guanacaste it is one of theses places that you try not to go too many time and get tired of it too soon. You need to save it for a special time and spend the money. One thing the house water is discussing... More

If you have to look at the prices you should not be going here. This is one of those places were you send a lot per plate and you leave fairly hungry. Easily the most expensive place we ate at in Costa Rica. The small plate offerings were fabulous but you could spend a fortune here trying to get a... More

I can honestly say Ginger has been my favorite restaurant since I first went in June of 2010. They have an eclectic menu of all tapas. The food is beyond amazing! The cocktails are delicious too! When in Costa Rica this is a must go to place. The restaurant is beautifully designed with open dining to the beautiful rain forest... More
