We were only in Playa Hermosa for 3 days and we ate at Ginger twice. The menu was an interesting mix of Asian and Mediterranean cuisine. The owner (Anne) is a Cordon Bleu Chef and the quality of the food is exceptional. Wine list was great. The crowd was mostly North Americans with a smattering of Europeans and Ticos (locals)....

Ginger's is my favorite restaurant for a fancy meal in all of Costa Rica! I've been going there at least twice during each visit to Playa Hermosa for the last 12 years, and I have never had a bad dish! My personal favorites are Firecracker Shrimp, Ginger's Ahi Tuna, Filet Mignon, Potstickers... and I could go on! If you have... More

The food here is among the best I've ever had. It's a little pricey, but well worth it. Get the Asian Tacos, the Jalapeno Margarita and the lava cake among other things.

My husband & I lived in the area for a couple of years and always enjoyed going to Ginger for Friday Night $3.50 Martinis! The restaurant is a modern contemporary open-air tree house, located on the main road of Playa Hermosa. It's really fun to sit at the bar, talk to local friends, along with the bartender and Ann, the... More

We enjoyed our meal and it is a lovely place to eat in Coco. My friend order the Mahi Mahi and it was well cooked, but was really to thick and unappetizing to look at. It was platted in a way that had no color or contrast, just a big hunk of Mahi Mahi, no veggies, nothing. They did take... More

Okay this place is truly amazing! The drinks are great--Don Julio Margarita was the best Margarita I have ever had. It was my wife's bday so we went all out. I think we ordered 10-12 dishes (took a lot home) and they were all amazing. Favorite was the steak Taco's and beef with fried plantains. Service could not have been... More

The menu here is awsome. The service so friendly. We loved the bocas and the wine selection. The restaurant has an original concept in terms of architecture. We would go back.
