We were told by friends that this restaurant is a must go - and I am so glad we listened! It was within walking distance from our resort (Villa Sol) but the parking lot is very large and has a parking attendant. The service was fantastic, even with our less than stellar spanish. They also spoke english, which we appreciated. The food was amazing. It is a tapas style restaurant, so you pick 3-5 items to share with the table. We ordered more, as we had hungry teenagers with us, and each and every item was absolutely delicious.

We didn't look into this enough before we went.

It's a lovely place. Delicious food with asian flair unavailable anywhere else, attentive English-speaking staff, prices listed in U.S. dollars, lovely ambiance.

We had a somewhat awkward experience in that we were under-dressed and under-aged. My husband and I went at the end of our day as an adventure but hadn't read much about Ginger. Our taxi driver had recommended it. As tourists on a somewhat limited budget, in our 30s, wearing our shorts and tanks, we didn't fit it. Every other patron was well-dressed and at least 50 years old. We ate well, but we left as quickly as we could. I will say that everyone around us seemed to be having an amazing time although no Costa Rican patrons were in attendance.

We are planning on living part time in Playa Hermosa. Ginger has been a part of our stays as long as we have been coming to Guanacaste. The service is elegant and precise and the food is as well. From the small plates and sushi to main course entrees. They also have a nice selection of cocktails, wines and beer.

We had a wonderful dinner here and the staff are the best, especially Jorge! We had vege spring rolls,Asian tacos, and multiple orders of calendar rings. Outside seating, so if you are sensitive to bug bites wear repellent, they also have some available; we were not bothered, eating at 6pm.

Ginger was the perfect way to end a perfect day in Play Hermosa. The restaurant was open air and beautifully laid out. The menu is composed of tapas sized portions of really great food. It gives the diner a chance to sample many different dishes in one sitting and not leaving you so full you can't move.
My favorite was the tiny tacos, but the lettuce wraps were a close second. The dessert menu also had delicious choices. The GF and dairy free Dark Chocolate Grand Mariner Torte with Orange Sorbert was Mucho Gusto!! My husband had the Pavlova, another great choice.

Highly recommend Ginger, we went in low season, get reservations in high season because its just that good.
