“If you need something not so Greek”
Reviewed 17 July 2014

After 10 days in Greece we really needed something else than Dolmades and Feta cheese and Ginger provided this perfectly.
The lounge is very nice, with tables outside, but covered, but also some in the back without covering. The Sushi chef is working in the front of the restaurant and you can sit in the bar right in front of him and see how he creates one perfect dish after another. The service is good, but the waiters tend to forget you, and only one of them remembered to present the specials of the day (Which was some of the best food and not on the menu) In the end of our meal we were asked if we wanted more and said yes, got menu cards, but the waiter never returned and as the place grew more busy in time, we never placed our last order. Despite it i still believe the place is very good and there is nothing wrong with the food which is absolutely amazing. Also the cocktails are absolutely great, especially the Basil smash, a the Lychee martini!

“Japanese Cuisine with Nice Presentation”
Reviewed 14 July 2014

I visited this restaurant with my wife for dinner. The chef was an actual Japanese, who must be the only Japanese chef in Santorini. We ordered several piece of Tsukuri (raw fish) and salmon sushi topped with salmon eggs. The tastes and those presentation were very nice even for us Japanese ! (The price was much more expensive than eating in Japan though) The staff was very kind and polite, which was similar approach of Japanese hall staff. I recommend this restaurant for those who enjoy Japanese cuisine as well as Japanese who can enjoy European images to Japanese cultures.

“Delicious ”
Reviewed 10 July 2014 via mobile

Staff were friendly & atmosphere was lovely. The pricing is a little on the higher side but the food so worth it. Portion sizes are quite reasonable too. The tempura California roll was delicious I could have eaten so much of it. All the sushi is made fresh at the front of the restaurant right where you can see. We will re visit here.

“raffine and delicious food”
Reviewed 9 July 2014

The asparagus sushi was delicious. Also, the spicy tuna tartar and the octopus tempura were really good also. The passion fruit martini was a bit to sugary, but still one of the best drink I had in Santorini.

“Awesome sushi!!”
Reviewed 8 July 2014

As NYers, my husband and I have had our share of sushi and Ginger was some of the best we've had! Completely unexpected in the cliffs of Santorini. The fish tasted so fresh it was as if they'd JUST caught up and cut it up for us. We also had a fried chicken salad which was delicious as well. And the owner, Lefty, came by our table and chatted us up. He was delightful! This is a must visit!
