Ginger is listed as one of the best in PE. Interesting menu with game and other more unusual items. We ate seared tuna and the duck breast. Both superb. The creme brulee had a twist with Thyme. Not completely french but great. Really good wine...More

Had to resolve an issue with a client and the first place coming to mind to do this, was Ginger. Problem solved. Service, meal, everything was outstanding. Would be great however if the municipality could do something about the noise emanating from the make shift...More

In complete contrast to the Beach Hotel which is connected to the Ginger restaurant this had a modern, clean fresh feel about it, although the staff were a bit more stuffy and less relaxed than the hotel team. Great choice of dishes on the menu...More

Restaurant with ambitions, but with a veranda overlooking a parking lot and a busy street, it drags the score down. Still a pretty nice place for a Sunday lunch.

Best chicken salad I had in the EC! Simplicity at its best- excellent vinaigrette, fresh lettuce, beautifully marinated chicken with crispy skin. Could consider a change in coffee beans. Service was very professional and friendly. Good wine list. Great views.

Last minute reservation for 4 and they were good to accommodate our preference for table inside on a chilly evening. Service quite slow but dinner very good.

That is a very good point. It doesn't look like it - which says it all about this restaurant. I have no idea how this place remains so highly rated although I probably didn't help by rating it five stars by mistake!! One... More
