I went here for dinner with my boyfriend, it was a nice setting, nice atmosphere and had a quirky feel to it. I had salted squid for a starter which was amazing and then I had fish for main! Delicious and I would definitely recommend the experience.

Fantastic restaurant with consistently good food. One of Belfasts finest. Would recommend the steak which is locally sourced. There is a good value pre theater menu and an excellent 3 course set menu priced at £32. Well worth a try.

Had a great Saturday night in Ginger, with a lively atmosphere, friendly service and fabulous food. We all enjoyed every single course and cannot wait to return again. The fish dishes were especially good as was the squid starter.

Went with friends on a Saturday night for dinner and the food was amazing! Everything was faultless and I don't think you could go wrong with anything on the menu. My dessert - pears, jelly , meringues and cream - was absolutely fabulous and the chocolate fondant was said to be the best ever tasted! You could not fail to... More

Just happened across this place and thought we'd try it as the menu looked interesting. What a find. Great staff, helpful and friendly and food to match. Went out of their way to make a dish accessible to me, catering for an allergy.

Went with friends. All ok but for the same price you can do a lot better. Nothing special. Good atmosphere.
