Very good located, beautiful view over Prag which always comes nice with dinning. Service very friendly, but I didn't like to have discussions of the grade of how meat has to be. In general the food had a really nice quality. Could be a bit more on the plate but ok that's what's normal with fusion-kitchen-restaurants.
We had a burger and the duck. The burger and all what came with it was really good. But the duck had to go back to the chef twice and ended up staying in the kitchen. One of the pieces was perfectly medium but the second one was still raw in 80% of its meat. I do love sushi, i like to eat medium meat, but I don't like to eat my poultry raw. That's why the duck went back twice. What I didn't like was the discussion afterwards that all pieces were good there was nothing raw...but sorry it definitely was and if people don't like medium meat the chef prepares the meat as well "well done" why do I needed to have discussions over one piece of duck breast if it is raw or not. It had a defiantly different texture than the other piece and I wounder why the restaurant has to start discussing over it then. All in all they really tried to make up for it and i got another food instead and service stayed always polite, but it was a disappointment to have to discus whether a piece of meat has the right texture or not when I was looking forward to eat duck breast and ended up with good fish&chips, but just not what I wanted.

I have been to Ginger and Fred a few years ago and enjoyed very much and now I wanted to share the experience with my wife and two teen kids. This time the experience was mixed. I had made a booking via email but when we went there they could not locate our reservation. The manager was very polite and we were fortunate to be sited. However, the specials of the day were all sold out (went at 9pm). The food quality was very good but you may find difficulty choosing a dish if you don't eat meat or fish.
