    Ginger is the BEST wedding caterer! They made our wedding the best it could be!

    Javier, Morgan, and the entire Ginger team were INCREDIBLE. Ginger catered our 45-person, 3-day wedding in Tulum in May 2022. Every single bite of food over the 3 days was high-end restaurant quality! I work in the food industry and so do most of my guests - everyone commented just how spectacular the food and drinks were. Above all else, Ginger's staff were the best. They went above and beyond each day to make sure everything went smoothly and everyone's drinks and plates we full! They were truly the best team I've ever seen - I cannot recommend them highly enough. Ginger was also incredible easy and fun to work with leading up to the wedding.

    If you need a caterer in the area, Ginger is the only answer!

    Ginger's reply:

    Thank you Anni! You guys were fantastic to work with and we're very glad everyone liked the food, drinks, and service :)

    Delicious, friendly, and other worldly.

    Our amazing caterer was one of our favorite elements of our fabulous Tulum wedding! Ginger went above and beyond catering and elevated our wedding experience to a beautiful experience complimented by the most scrumptious bites you could ever imagine. Javier and the Ginger team provided the perfect curated menu for our guests to enjoy. But Ginger provided much more than just a menu; they provided peace of mind, clear communication, love and support in the planning process, and the most perfect moments for our guests to connect over a delicious meal.
    We met about a year before the wedding for an initial menu tasting and weren’t expecting how incredible the experience would be! We met in Javier’s gorgeous home and were welcomed with tequila and warm embraces. We instantly felt at home. We spent the afternoon in Javier and Morgan’s kitchen enjoying the most delicious meal we’ve ever had over fantastic conversation and connection. By the end of our time together, my husband and I were ready to pick up our lives and move to Tulum to be their neighbors! That’s how fantastic of a time we had! We would both agree, in all of our travels and restaurant experiences, that was one of our favorite meals we’ve enjoyed together. We knew we had to have them cater our wedding instantly; there was no doubt.
    We had a unique wedding planning experience with COVID cancelations and postponements, and at every step, they were flexible, supportive, and provided very clear communication, giving us incredible peace of mind. And the wedding meal itself, PERFECTION! We still have guests raving about the perfectly delicious canapes and family-style meal served at our wedding. Javier’s team ensured we were well fed with personal deliveries of canapes and snacks while we took pictures and mingled with guests. We chose the family-style Mexican barbeque option, and it was perfect! Everyone got to enjoy an array of perfectly cooked meats and sides. We loved the family-style serving option because everyone got to build their perfect meal, and passing around dishes with the help of the catering team created a more intimate, family-like dining experience. It elevated the magic of our wedding from just a catered meal to a space where we could connect, laugh, and rave over each meal element.
    We cannot stop singing Ginger’s accolades. Our wedding night was the most magical night of our lives and to share those moments over delicious, curated bites, full bellies, and warm embraces was everything we dreamed of for our wedding plus more. We recommend Ginger for catering any event, as Javier and Morgan bring so much light and love to everything they create. THANK YOU, GINGER!!

    Ginger's reply:

    Thank you so much Liz and Travis for your wonderful review! We also instantly felt a connection with the two of you and we would love for you to be our neighbors!! ♥️ We’re very happy that you had such a warm and beautiful time and that we could be part of it. ♥️♥️

    Absolutely amazing!

    We got married in Tulum and used Ginger Catering for our wedding. Ginger Catering was highly recommended by our wedding planner (Synda at L&L Your Wedding Planner Tulum) and we were told was the best catering in Tulum. We can now agree to this!! Last year we came to Tulum and were able to do a food tasting with Ginger which was so so so good. We got to try so many amazing dishes and left stuffed. They had many options for wedding catering and we decided on passed apps for cocktail hour and the Mexican BBQ for the dinner which was family style and AMAZING! Everyone loved the food and the staff. Highly Recommended to anyone getting married in the Tulum area!
