We had a great experience here! Ate as starter the salad and the, from our waiter recomended, Parmesan Souffle! As main we got a perfect done steak. Abd they do serve dessert wine (sweet wine). Special thanks to David, our waiter! x O&M

After trying another restaurant in the area we were hoping for something better the next night. Ginger is a smart casual restaurant, fine dining without the tiny portions. Good friendly service with a bit more formality. I had the 3 game carpaccio that included crocodile...More

A bit of old-fashioned furniture (colonial style?) - however the food was fantastic! One of the best Risottos I have ever had. We had good wine so definitely recommend this place.

We loved our meal here. Not cheap, but worth it for the food and service we received. Close to the casino too!

Very good service from David. The Tuna with sesame crust was amazing! As well as the Tartare starter (maybe portion can be smaller).

Maybe fine dining, but certainly priced for foreign visitors or those using company credit cards. A traditional fine dining restaurant, for a niche market.

Food was tasty and well prepared. And I was quite impressed with the preparation time for the meals. Ambiance was a little stiff on the inside, so we decided to move to the deck. Service was very good. Well worth a visit.
