Loved everything we ordered. Four of us shared 8 different plates. So fun to try their many dishes. Even the desserts were stunning. Service was quick despite being packed with people waiting to sit down. Highly recommend going.

We walked to this restaurant from Villasol and it was well worth the trek. The menu is exciting and very tasteful, unique in presentation, ingredients / recipes and taste. I think it would be hard to have a selection here you would not like. Service, as in all of Playa Hermosa, is professional, helpful, cheerful and timely. Clearly, this is... More

We ordered five tapas and three desserts for three adults and were stuffed. Everything was top notch--just excellent. Favorites: strawberry lemonade and lettuce wraps. We'll be back.

Very good restaurant tapas style Asian fusion with a very broad menu. Food was excellent. Service was perhaps the best I have had anywhere in Latin America. Extremely attentive servers and many of them food came out quickly and drinks and waters were refilled immediately. I was extremely impressed. The restaurant is well designed on a hillside hanging over a... More

Went with some friends for some late night snacks and it is easy to see why this is the highest rated place in town, Awesome drinks, the service was perfect and the food was great, all kinds of flavors that worked nicely together.

Great place for tapas. Very good service and food was delicious. Plates were on the smaller side for the cost. Dessert was the best!

I have traveled a lot in both first world and third world countries. Ginger is one of the best experiences that I have had (multiple times) in my travels! The service is excellent (thanks to Alex, Giselle, Eddie, Francisco and others as well)! The food is terrific! This is not a super fancy white table cloth restaurant (and I admit... More

Four of us dined at Ginger twice in our 6 day vacation. Both dinners were very good. The service was impeccable. I was most impressed with the tuna poke rolls, and the lightly fried mahi mahi. Our table of 4 had 12 & 14 plates at dinner. Don't be scared by the large menu, order a lot and order often!... More
