Description: DINNER AND SHOW! Samui’s first and only “Churrascaria” Brazilian BBQ. Plentiful and deliciously satisfying. The cuisine of Brazil with all of its sun-washed and pulsing flavours and Brazilian house music entertainment and INTERNATIONAL SAMBA DANCER SHOWS nightly, our professional dancers are direct from Brazil! You can see about 17 different kinds of meat revolving on spits in the show kitchen, Then it’s fun time, as the waiters are “Passador” and they continually circulate around the restaurant, carving directly to your plate. How do they know who wants topping up? That’s easy too. All diners have a roulette-style disc, green on one side, red on the other. Place the green side up, and the passadors will be straight over. Show the red side and you’ll be left alone, until you turn it back to green of course! It’s not just meat that comes around, there’s fish & seafood too. And sauces, and fresh baked bread. You’ll have to get up for your salad, but you’ll certainly feel it worth the effort when you see the incredible 63 items salad bar in front of you!ZICO’S RESTAURANT (Service hours: 18.00 – 23.00 hrs.)•Seating capacity : 130 seats (92 indoor, 38 outdoor)•Three Samba Shows : Tuesday – Sunday•Live Music : Every MondayZICO’S BAR (Service hours: 18.00 – 01.00 hrs.)•Seating capacity : 105 seats (60 indoor, 45 outdoor)

The food was what I had expected filling and meaty, but the service was really great we had lots from the grill and the salad bar, I did experience any of the side dishes because I did not see them but I am sure they were nice.

Dear Wenneth H, Thank you for reviewing your recent Zico’s experience. We’re glad it was ‘Yummy AND Fun!’ Next time, please try the side dishes –they’re in the chafing dishes next to the BBQ area. That will give you a chance to see our barbeque experts in action too! Best, Joe More

Ok first the meat is not the top quality you would get in an expensive steak house but then you would not get the unstoppable amount you could have here. The service is good the food very good value for the quantity being offered. Salads are a let down, however you do not go here for the salad. Price was... More

Upon arrival the brazilian shoed just started. Noisy, colorful and fun!! We had the caipirina and the buffet. Food was average and so was the restaurant atmosphere. Ok place to go to but there´s better places close by.

We were staying at Poppies for 8 days and had listed Zico's as one of the places that we wanted to try for a different night out. It's about 15 minutes from our hotel and so we decided to try it one night as we had read so much about it on Tripadvisor. The restaurant is part of the Centara... More

Living in Portugal with the excellent Brazilian BBQs over there Zico's had a lot to live up to; in fairness they didn't do too bad. The salads and sides buffet was very good and the guys and girls walking around with the various "main dishes" did not stop. The picanha, usually my favourite, wasn't picanha shaped, but tasted good all... More

Dear Hooperman001, Thank you for the positive review. That’s high praise indeed coming from a senior reviewer and barbeque aficionado. You’re so right about no one leaving hungry. We recommend diners rest if required during the Zico’s dining experience (flip the disk over to ‘red’) and then continue when they’re ready. After all at Zico’s it’s a marathon, not a... More
