Madame Zingara is a group of companies, working within the hospitality and entertainment sector in South Africa. Based in the beautiful Mother City, we’ve lovingly restored iconic eateries and have spread the hippy magic to the rest of South Africa with our traveling dinner-cirque spectacular – the Theatre of Dreams.
We are a family-style business placing high emphasis on service excellence and capacity building for all our team. From late night revelry to sedate lunches under the trees, there is truly something for every mood and every celebration.
We look forward to welcoming you to one of our unique dining experiences.
It all began on a chilly Cape Town winter’s night in May 2001 when, tentatively and without expectation, we opened the doors of our first restaurant in Loop Street - Madame Zingara. The 13 years that followed have been a roller-coaster ride of great successes, and at times, great loss, yet each hurdle conquered has given us the courage to do more, and in turn, be more.
Financed through immense hard work and dedication, we are incredibly proud to have created a company that thrives on doing good. With a passion for our staff and the happiness of our valued clients being at the heart of everything we do, we have built and rebuilt and reinvented ourselves a hundred times over.
With our foundations wholly based on doing the best for people, we strive to be strong enough at our core to take risks, push boundaries and, as a result, create unforgettable magic.
At Madame Zingara our targets are solely based on recruitment, with our 2016 goal being to employ over 1000 staff. This vision is in order to create a sustainable platform to encourage all our people to achieve tertiary education and pursue their own special dreams, while sharing and helping ours.
We are constantly on the lookout for talent. Not just the kind of talent that requires you to do backflips mid-air, while blowing bubbles from your belly button and singing the National Anthem at the same time, but talent that comes in all its many forms. Our staff is at the core of all that we do, which is why we invest time and tons of energy into ensuring they can be the best version of themselves, in whatever journey they decide to choose.

With the success of our heart centre and future leaders programmes, we have demonstrated how with the correct foundations any person can achieve greatness.
All our degrees are activated through our partnership with CATHSSETA South Africa and a multitude of top educational institutions around South Africa.

We at Madame Zingara not only believe in you, but will stand by you every step of the way.
All we require in return is a real commitment and a willingness to put in the time and effort necessary to meet your true potential. We expect you to treat every single guest and every single plate of food with love, as if it wasn’t for our incredible clientele we wouldn’t be able to share this amazing gift with you.
