So good. I haven't eat a meal like that in ages. The hummus is so creatively prepared. That is the only way I will eat pejibye from now on. Fresh fish, too. The brownie was so chocolately, too. Definitely, not Hershey's.

We went on a rainy evening and were the only 2 customers who had braved the weather. Menu is relatively limited but very tasty. A little different to most menus as the chef is from California. Owner (Husband of Chef) is very friendly and chatty.
We paid cash but they do take credit cards.

Wild Ginger provides a great alternative to Tico food in Tortuguero. It's a little way from the centre of the village, but worth seeking out. Good food, friendly owners/staff, and a pleasant setting. Personally, I found the portions a little small, but the quality of the food made up for it. Reflecting the different style and quality of food, this place is more expensive than other options on the island. Great fruit batidos (smoothies).

A jewel in the middle of nowhere. No one at any of the lodges will tell you it exists. Great food, preparedby the owner and served by her husband. Best natural drinks, no soft drinks, beautiful atmosphere. The whole family had a great meal. The guacamole is to die for, the chips are home made, and the setting is cozy. Don't miss it.

The meal was nice, the fish was perfectly cooked and the service was great. We would have spend a lot more time there but we were due for the turtle nesting night time visit. We were very pleased and would go there again.
It was dark out, so not so fun with the view, and since it was low season there were just 2 other tables.
