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!Sent on 11/22/2019

Best Catering in Tulum
We were fortunate to have Ginger cater our wedding in Tulum and we were thrilled with the results. They came highly recommended by our wedding planner (Synda at L&L Your Wedding Planner Tulum) and now we know why. Chef Javier's entire meal was fantastic. Appetizers, entrees, sides, and even dessert were all excellent (don't miss his Pan de Elote! It's off-menu, and we found an interview online where Chef shares that it's his wife's favorite dish, and made a special request to have it alongside our wedding cake and it is so delicious!). We chose an assortment of grilled meats and a fresh catch fish, and each dish was rich and flavorful. We also loved that the meal was served family style so there is ample food for all. We received so many compliments from our guests about how great the food was. And they accommodated dietary restrictions with no problem. No one went home hungry (even our vegetarian friends!)! Chef also offers a fun late night touch-- we surprised our guests with a second meal of midnight tacos (which were so delicious!) and it kept the dance party going into the morning hours. Do yourself a favor and hire Ginger to cater your wedding dinner in Tulum-- their food is the best, their staff offers excellent service, and you will leave thrilled with the results.Sent on 04/13/2019

We can not thank Morgan and Javier enough for all they did to help make our wedding day such a success! Their willingness and ability to communicate promptly and efficiently made the planning from abroad simply easy. Additionally, they and their staff were incredibly professional, attended to every detail and absolutely delightful to work with. Javier, your special care, and attentiveness towards my parents was priceless; it made them feel quite special. Even to this day, our guests are still raving and salivating over the food; Javier your talents in the kitchen are second to none! It truly was an honor and a pleasure to work with Ginger! We can not wait to be back in Tulum; our first stop will be to dine at Ginger.Sent on 08/20/2018
Much love and appreciation, The Penabads

Chef Javier is the absolute best!! From the moment my husband and I entered his restaurant for a tasting, we knew we had selected the perfect caterer for us. Javier greeted us warmly, and presented us with 6 dishes as a sample of his style. We literally ate every last bite off our plates, everything was delicious! On the day of the wedding, Javier and his team were incredible. Everyone was so friendly and efficient, all of the plates came out beautifully, and guest after guest exclaimed it was the best food they had ever had at a wedding hands down! Javier was so kind to accommodate the tastes of a wide range of kids, two vegan guests, and some guests with dietary restrictions with ease. It is so nice to work with a team who clearly enjoys what they do, and it really showed both in the quality of the food and the friendliness of the service. Thank you Chef Javier and team, you helped to make our wedding as perfect and memorable as we could have hoped for!Sent on 12/01/2017

I got married in Tulum and we used Ginger Catering. Hands down, the best meal we had all trip, for ALL our wedding guests. No one had a meal that topped Javier's Mexican BBQ. It was so tender and delicious. We so wanted to get to their restaurant, but didn't have time due to the tours/activities we booked.Sent on 06/02/2017
I HIGHLY recommend Ginger. Not just for their amazing food, but for their amazing service. They absolutely made my life easier for my wedding; they assisted me with transportation, my rehearsal night, their servers were amazingly attentive. Their bartender was great too, our 35 guests went through 5 bottles of tequila --- we couldn't get enough of their margaritas!
We are so thankful for Javier and his amazing team!

When we began planning our wedding, our planner's first recommendation for providing the food was Chef Javier at Ginger Restaurant. We visited Tulum one year before our wedding and were able to sit in the restaurant with our planner while being served some samples from the incredibly delicious menu. The food was so good that we never even considered another option and we didn't ever second guess our choice. Ginger provided us with several catering options and even let us create our own custom menu for our wedding.Sent on 05/10/2017
Javier and his team arrived on the wedding day and prepared appetizers for a cocktail hour and a plated dinner for us and our guests. Everything was so well done and it was the perfect meal to share with our family and friends. The servers were very courteous and always ready with the next beverage.
We can't recommend Ginger enough to cater a wedding or event. In addition to the amazing food and service, they are great people to work with. At the very least visit the restaurant when you go to Tulum.

We booked Ginger to cater their Mexican BBQ for my daughter's wedding on the beach in Tulum. I can not say enough great things about Javier and the Ginger team. The food was FANTASTIC - many people told us it was the best food they had eaten on the trip. His people were beyond WONDERFUL. We had the meal served family style (fresh green salad, ceviche, gaucamole, salsa, Mayan grilled chicken, steak, conchita pibil, and black beans. It WAS AWESOME!!!! We also had them provide the bar service. They have several bar options, but we opted to provide our own liquor, beer and wine and they provided mixers, water, etc. We served tamarind ritas, regular ritas, beer and wine.Sent on 02/01/2017
The dinner was set for 7:00 pm. They arrived with all the dishes, food and grills around 11:00 and started cooking. They hand washed every glass to ensure it was spotless. After we set up the tables with linens and decor, they added all the place settings and set up the bar. We had a pretty large rain shower headed our way, so around 5:00 and Javier had his team install large tarps over the terraces our house to keep everything dry. We kept them up throughout the evening and it worked great. They just hung right above all the lights we had up and it really created a nice look (they weren't cheapie blue tarps - these were huge silver tarps so they looked nice).
The bartenders were a hoot, fun and on top of things like you wouldn't believe - dancing and having a blast! They seemed to really enjoy the party and they mingled with guests to get drinks for people before folks even needed to step up to the bar ask. They also stayed afterward and picked up all the linens, candles, tables, chairs...everything!! They swept the patio and bagged all the trash - something I wasn't expecting them to do, but I loved the help and it saved us a ton of work the next morning.
In short, if you want fantastic food and amazing service, Ginger is the way to go!! ❤️
