We were staying at El Mangroove and this place was just a few minutes down the road. Great food but the atmosphere is where this place shines even more.

We ate at Ginger on January 7th, while staying at a nearby resort. Service was incredibly friendly and the food was interesting and very tasty. We'd definitely go back if we are in the area again.

Our family went to Ginger for New Years Eve and we all thoroughly enjoyed the restaurant. The food was exceptional, the cocktails were delicious, and the staff was very friendly. I would highly recommend going to Ginger if you are in the Playa Hermosa area....More

Amazing food and great atmosphere! They also catered to two of us who are gluten free (one a severe celiac). Highly recommend! Reservations also recommended.

The food was delicious, but I was disappointed in how expensive everything was. Very pompous environment in the restaurant and we felt out of place.

We have found that we enjoy taking a larger group, that way we can order more of a variety, and everyone can get a sample of more flavors. You don't need to dress up, but it is a place that we do like to step it up from the... More
