Madame Zingara is a group of companies, working within the hospitality and entertainment sector in South Africa. It is made up of small independently run restaurants, each with their own unique offering and individual crew.
We are a family-style business with 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.
With the iconic Theatre of Dreams taking our hippy magic to places far and wide, we look forward to welcoming 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 Madame Zingara in Loop Street. The 13 years that followed have been a rollercoaster ride of great successes, and at times, great losses too, 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 passion for our staff and the happiness of our valued clients be 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.

As a company we strive to create an inclusive environment that inspires and encourages growth.
After many years of listening and understanding staff needs, we are now able to provide full turnkey education solutions that work in conjunction with full time employment. It is our vision to offer a full spectrum of free education programmes assisting 50% of our employees by the end of 2015. 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 CASTHETA South Africa and a multitude of top education institutions around South Africa. From learning how to read and write to higher education programs, culinary course and MBAs, no matter your walk of life, there is an opportunity for you to shine. 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, a willingness to put in the time and effort necessary to meet your true potential and to treat every single guest and every single plate of food with your full spirit of love as it is our guest that afford us this amazing gift that we are able to share with you.
