Had a wonderful lunch and dinner at Ginger. Lunch was fantastic out on the deck overlooking the strand. Great cocktails and tasty meals. Dinner was for a large group and service was a bit slow, and they had run out of a few things (like bread rolls), but the rest of the food and atmosphere was excellent.

Great location-staff-food. A must visit restaurant. I highly recommend the avocado starter and seafood soup. These are the absolute must! Enjoy!

5 star restaurant next to The Beach Hotel where we stayed and the casino. We were lucky to get a table as we just walked in but we were early, just after 6 pm and it was a Monday night. People later were turned away unless they wanted to sit outside in the cold. We felt a bit guilty as... More

A really welcome fine dining experience in PE. The beachfront area is dotted with great options. Ginger however is a stand out in terms of service and food quality

Two successive visits left me very disappointed in the supposed 5 star restaurant. First we were celebrating my son's 21st birthday with his elderly grandparents at a table next to the kitchen, the fan in the kitchen was broken and we sat in the intense heat! We complained but to this day there has been no feedback from management. Secondly... More

Ginger restaurant was booked for us by our guesthouse. The food was good and reasonable priced. We sat on the terrace which was nice as you can hear and see the ocean. The light could have been a bit more atmospheric. Friendly service.

And such professional service! It gets busy so best to reserve a table. It's got a high rating for a reason. A must if you're in PE.

This restaurant is well located, sea-facing and has been well maintained. Food is good and the service is good. It is a place where one can relax and while the afternoon away.
