I absolutely LOVED being entertained at Madame Zingaras, From the moment you arrive you are transported to a new world. I think it was possibly the best night out I have ever had. What terrific acts. The food may not be the best I have ever tasted, but it certainly was more than satisfactory, and dont forget you spend the... More

Seriously one of the best evenings out I have ever had! On arrival we were quickly shown to our table, inside the large wooden tent, where our very friendly waitress explained to us how the evening would unfold. We had our drinks on the table in under 5 minutes(cocktails and all) and our orders for all three courses were taken... More

One of the best evenings we have experienced in ages. The show was very entertaining and they have perfected the service. the food was good but not excellent. Considering they serve 420 people in an evening they do a pretty good jog. I had the lamb Shank which could have been cooked longer to get it more tender. My partner... More

The experience was unique. The mystery of what you are about to experience makes this venue very exciting. The food was great for such a huge venue. The entertainment, top notch! Highly recommended.

I really enjoyed the whole experience. The food was a surprise and was good. Well done to the team. The acts were quality and sufficient to entertain. Feel the drinks are pricey though.

Went there with family and friends and we had a wonderful time - in fact, it was my wife and my third time there this year. We both thought that the acts in April 2013 were better, but it was still amazing and top quality. By now we absolutely hate the clown character, but he managed to still get some... More

We had our department's year-end function at Madame Zingara's and it was awesome! The service was excellent, slick and professional. They did really well with serving a full tent of about a thousand people in-between the different parts of the show. The food was excellent, better than expected. Wine prices are comparable with other restaurants in the Waterfront, maybe even... More
