Description: DINNER AND SHOW! Samui’s first and only “Churrascaria” Brazilian BBQ...
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)

I love Brazilian churrasco restaurants and always visit them if there are someone available where I travel. Zico's has an average standard on the food they serve. Combined with a pretty high price, I didn't enjoy this place so good. However, they had nice music and they make the best Caipirinha in Koh Samui !! :)
