“A Brazilian night out in Downtown Edinburgh”
Reviewed September 3, 2013

An experience if you want something a little different. Authentic style food and way of eating. Served by attractive friendly staff, to whom nothing is to much trouble.After choosing your own delights from the salad bar, you are served at your table (beef, Lamb, Pork, Ham, Chicken, and other delights, including roast fresh Pinapple). No need to worry about missing an item, you will be full before the waitresses stop coming to the table. Afterwards there is a choice of sweets and fresh Brazilian coffee.An idea of what to expect if you are going to the World cup.

“Tasty food and smiley service”
Reviewed August 31, 2013

My boyfriend and I visited the restaurant on a total whim and while the bill may have been a little overpriced (£48 for 2 people), the food was fantastic, the waitresses were very smiley and the laidback atmosphere made for a lovely evening.

“Delicious!”
Reviewed August 30, 2013

We visited Zicos after buying an itison deal. It was fantastic value for money. The salad bar was well stocked and the meat just kept coming. Service was efficient too. Real,y enjoyed and worth a visit if you are in Edinburgh.

“The food just kept on coming”
Reviewed August 23, 2013

We took the opportunity to visit this restaurant having purchased a very well priced groupon voucher. The restaurant was very nicely decorated inside and very clean and had Brazilian music playing in the background. It is classed as a buffet in as far as you can help yourself to a selection of delicious salads, olives, coleslaw and rices etc and then the very pleasant waitresses place a card on your table and inform you that they will be coming round with a selection of fresh meats and when you have had enough you turn the card over to the red side to indicate this.
There was a selection of up to ten delicious meats served on a scewer which they brought to our table at different stages and they were all delicious, fresh and hot. There was also hot pineapple coated in cinnamon which rounded off a fabulous meal.
Also had a mojito which was one of the best I had had.
Certainly would recommend this as a venue for a different eating experience in Edinburgh.

“Poor”
Reviewed August 23, 2013 via mobile

Not a good experience. The meat is very cheap and tough to eat, the salad is clearly from packets and tins. It's a good concept and inexpensive with an itison voucher but much more effort required. Many better places to go in Edinburgh even if on a budget.
