Is Madame Zingara still open in Durban? I went onto Google and was told that it's permanently closed... anyone know if that's true?

I love the concept of fine dining and theatre combined but generally my experience is that one would need to be compromised for the other. Not in this case. The show was astounding, funny, diverse and fascinating. The food was delectable and definitely gourmet.

I have been to Madam Zingara 4 times and each and every time is as magical and magnificent as the first. The waiters are fantastic, well trained, funny and fast. The food was great too. But the show is really worth every single minute and cent. If the show was 3 hours longer, one would still not get bored. What... More

I don't know what I expected but the experience I had at Montecasino blew me out of the water. It was simply astonishing. It was sensual, beautiful, theatrical, delicious, outstanding, euphoric, erotic, special and quite frankly one of the best nights of my life. You have converted a jaded cynic to a lifetime fan.

One of my favorite theater dinners . Very helpful staff , eccentric entertainers and mind blowing food . Make sure to dress up with a hint of funky . Try to get there early to take advantage of the face painting and hidden quirks . Great fun

Awesome acrobatics. The theatre of dreams is amazing. The show was excellent. There were some unexpected moments the had the crowd spellbound. The food was delicious. I loved the chocolate steak. The steak was perfectly done. Drinks were not overly expensive. I had a wonderful evening.

Unfortunately Trip Advisor doesn't have a Madame Zingara's location listed for Johannesburg, which is where the show is currently based and where we visited on New Years Eve. Without a doubt, it was the best New Year's Eve celebration ever. If you've never been and don't know what to expect, buckle up. Think carnival meets cabaret meets humour meets the... More

Although we visited the Johannesburg show at Monte Casino, it was well worth it and a great show, star performances and superb food. Everybody joins in and have a great time. The show is full of surprises and never a boring moment. The only complain if I may, is that it was very hot inside the venue (we had a... More
