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)

I am a frequent traveler to Koh Samui, as we have a vacation house located on the other side of Lamai, away from Chaweng. Even though i like it better on that half of the island, i have to say that i am each year taking the trip in to Chaweng just to eat at this amazing restaurant. The prices is affordable, and you could eat as much as you want. Make sure your hungry upon your arrival at the eatary.

As you enter, you have the choice of ordering "a la carte" or the traditional brazilian buffeet. If you dont know what this is, it is simply a given card to you where you have to side, one red and one green. These colors indicate if you either are full or want more. The waiters walks around the tables with fresh bbq grilled meat and gives to you that has the green card in a upside direction. If you have the red side showing, they won´t disturb you. However, before you flip the card you will walk around a table and choose all the sides you would want (salads, pastries, toppings, potatoes/rice etc). Included is a dessert table as well.

The drinks is not included. However, they have excellent choices of fine wines and other liquors plus tradiotional sodas.

I could highly recommend this restaurant to couples and families. However, it will be difficult to have a business meeting here due to the loud live music.

Great ambience, lively environment and excellent food. Therefore i give this restaurant full stars :)

Compliments to the chef!
We enjoyed eating the varieties of barbecue. The staffs will not stop serving you the varieties of barbecues until you will surrender:-) Its a nice experience... You should go there with an empty stomach to ensure you enjoy the lavish barbecues they offer.

Aside from that, since we are a lobster lover.... Me and hubby enjoyed the delicious taste of the lobster plus the chef includes the best part of the lobster - claw! Its the 3rd time we had eaten lobster claw that chef included it our order. The 1st and 2nd was in Dubai, and St. Petersburg Russia.

With the quantity and qaulity of food we eat, Its worth the price!
Plus the dance shows we enjoyed watching.

I have been coming here since they opened and it's been really good but my God it's gone down hill. Service was just unbelievable, I just can't get my head round it. It used to be so good. Food was very average. O well look elsewhere from now on.

Dear John H,
We're not sure what happened the other night, but after your May 2016 visit you left a review that stated,

'Been here dozens of times and it's still great. People may say it's expensive but it's quality. The salad is amazing. Good friendly staff.'

We've obviously let you down and that's particularly disheartening since you are clearly a regular.
We do hope that you'll give us the opportunity to make this right.
Please contact our manager, Khun Milo directly and he'll make certain that you're well looked after.
Warm Regards,
Joe
