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)

Meats were all good, the wild boar was fantastic. salad and side dish buffet plenty and good quality. The dessert buffet was poor and the music (electr. dance music) way too loud!! Did not see any dancers etc as mentioned in other reviews. Service staff was excellent!

We went there 4 friends. The waiter brings in meat on BBQ stick, to every table and you select what meat you wanna taste based on wich menu you selected. There's a big salat bar, european style. All is okay, but does not really reflect the price. Nice wine card with good prices. Be aware that there's a show each... More

Extremely disappointed. As a Brazilian I expected the food to have good Brazilian quality, but that was never the case. The meat seemed expired, nothing had the "Brazilian flavour ", and everything is overcharged! Not worth your time, oh ot may be good for you, but not if you're going for Brazilian...

Dear Camila G, Welcome to Trip Advisor and thank you for taking the time to make your first review on your Zico’s experience. Your appraisal on the taste of the meat is a little perplexing.

This was my first visit to a Brazilian all-you-can-eat BBQ restaurant. Choice of buffet, basic meat and all type of meal/fishes meals. Our party of 4 tried all the choices and everyone was very happy. Unexpected was some Brazilian style dancers. Great place to dine but not it if you're on a tight budget.

Easy to find at Chaweng area and part of Centara Grand Hotel. Friendly staff, bit not the most effective and attentive, even though they are not busy. Quality of meat is great, but salat bar could be improved. Entertaining dancing show, but the band is "so so".
