We were staying nearby and really enjoyed walking to this sweet spot for dinner one evening. Our server was so nice and the menu selection was interesting and varied. The outdoor dining area was such an enjoyable and unique experience. We recommend the ginger cocktail, one of their house specialties.

We really loved the food but it took around an hour and a half for the food to come out. Normally this would be a one or two star experience but the food was really great and the manager made up for it by giving us a bottle of wine. I'd definitely give them a chance again.

If you approach from the East, the sign takes you to a little courtyard - the main restaurant is in back. The staff was very friendly and the food exceptional - not like anything in particular because they take the fusion seriously. Interesting flavors. Vegetarian friendly. Super-friendly efficient staff.

Excellent food and excellent service. I plan to return often. The butter chicken (tandoori) is one of the best entrees that I have ever had in any restaurant.

Ginger, located in the historic Pietermaai District, is an Asian-Carib fusion, open-air restaurant. There are two areas: at the front of the house, it is a casual setting bar with takeout, while the back of the house is more of a fine dining experience.  You can have a full three course meal in an eclectic setting. There are long tables... More

They advertise happy hour on the Curacao apps. but say they don't have it anymore....so take it off please. We had the half price early buffet special but it was not. Very average and I felt for full price it would not be good value. We are lucky to have a wonderful Indian buffet in Ottawa which is much less... More

Atmosphere, service, value, and most importantly food was fantastically flavored here. Compared to several competing neighborhood spots, this was our runaway favorite.

Good food and atmosphere. Nice service and overall very pleasant evening. Ginger is a nice place to hang out and with the live music we enjoyed a wonderful evening. The food is of good standard. Not too outspoken but pleasant service.
