Me and my partner had just now the best last dinner to Zico's restaurant. Although our mood was a little sad because we return back to reality tomorrow (back to our country), we left with the best mood we could have. A friend of ours recommended this restaurant and he was absolutely right. We were betrayed like kings. The service... More

Having had many poor meals and suffered some appalling service on Koh Samui, it was a delight to have dined at Zico's. The buffet food was fresh with a lot of variety both hot and cold plus soup, desserts and a delicious variety of BBQ meats that just kept coming, delivered to the table. The girls danced, sang and smiled,... More

If you like to ear meat and seafood while enjoying a Brazilian dance show, this place is for you. The staff walks around with a selection of fresh, hot braised duck, chicken, beef, salmon shrimps and a few other items. They shave off a slice direct to your plate. There's also a salad bar with many choices. The shows are... More

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 !! :)

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)
