Ginger Restaurant Bar

Fodor's Review

This tapas restaurant, featuring Asian and Mediterranean flavors, is situated in a modernistic glass-and-steel tree house that's cantilevered on the side of a hill and includes a spacious deck. Delectable appetizer-size offerings include seared pepper-crusted tuna atop pickled ginger slaw, or panfried sea bass fillets with a divine ginger–and–mandarin orange butter sauce. Not to be missed are Ginger's crispy shoestring fries, served with roasted garlic mayo. Portions are small, but layers of condiments and garnishes make them surprisingly satisfying. The fun thing to do is order several dishes and share. The varied wine list includes Old and New World wines by the glass, and specialty martinis and tropical cocktails go well with the tapas. For dessert, warm chocolate lava cake is rich enough to share, but only with someone you truly love. Be aware that the menu prices do not include tax and service (another 23 percent). It's open 5 to 10 pm.

Ginger Review

I ate at Ginger 3 times during my recent trip to Playa Hermosa. The food was excellent! The restaurant has a great "tree house" feel to it and the staff couldn't be friendlier. I will definitely go back to Ginger the next time I am in Costa Rica.
