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)

Read some mixed experiences about this restaurant but decided to try it out. Who expects a Brazilian restaurant in Samui:)? Gave it a try last Saturday September 06 and it was worthwhile every Thai bath. Decoration of restaurant is simple but tastful. Both sides row chairs with yellow head covers , in the middle row chairs with green head covers.... More

Visited here for the 2nd time to use up some of our cash bonanza from Centara and more then happy each time. The entertainment is okay but the atmosphere is really good, even when not busy. Service is great - lots of attention and authentic Thai smiles, and the food is great. Wonderful starter buffet (serve yourself), just make sure... More

Very disappointing steakhouse. We tried it thinking that 30 dollars a person was a good value for a Brazilian steakhouse. None of the meats tasted right- very blend. The chicken was very good though and the service was great. The atmosphere is pretty nice too. But the buffet was terrible, the food very mediocre, and the meat disappointingly not Brazilian... More

Dear Jennifer, Thank you for taking the time to review your Zico’s experience. We’re pleased that you enjoyed the atmosphere, service and chicken, of course. Your appraisal on the taste of the meat is a little perplexing. Perhaps we can clarify a point or two for fellow Trip Advisor readers…. Zico’s offers meats, pork, sausage, chicken and seafood. The menu... More

The Zico's we visited is the one in Chaweng, on Koh Samui. But it is not listed on Trip Advisor even though it has been open since 2005!! I don't know if there is one at Bophut, but somehow I doubt it, given that the restaurant is part of the Centara Grand Resort hotel just over the road. The Brazilian... More

Dear FamilyManDorset, You are very observant. We call this the famous moving restaurant trick! If you spend much time on Trip Advisor you may have noticed that even very simple errors can take an extraordinarily long time to revise. Zico’s is in Chaweng, directly across from Centara Grand Beach Resort. When Zico’s opened Trip Advisor placed it among the Bophut... More

As a Brazilian far from home I was craving for some Brazilian BBQ, and the delivered it quite well. The service is great, the food is really tasty. Recommended if you want a Brazilian experience away from Brazil.

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
