Casa Cheia is located at Mercado Central, a very special place in Belo Horizonte. The atmosphere of this restaurant is so typical and reflects the way of life in Belo Horizonte. I strongly recommend Casa Cheia to eat an amazing food and Mercado Central is a wonderful place to buy typical products from Minas Gerais, souvenirs, handmade products etc. The... More

I love being in such popular restaurants, and Casa Cheia is a good one, with good prices, quick service. Ok, it's a little noise around, but it's a market place... Try the "mexido" and the "porconóbis", they had been one of the best food in BH some years ago.

There are many places at this market where you can get all sorts of foods, but not being a local I am a bit skeptical of some of the places and of some of the foods. This place was clean, well appointed, with regular wait staff, regular menu, and normal every day "daily specials", plus an amazing assortment of foods... More

We undertook a tour of 3 cities in Brazil and had the opportunity to eat out every single night. Without doubt this was the worst experience we had on the whole trip. It is my belief that because we were not local they had decided to treat us like dirt. Despite a lengthy menu we were told only 4 dishes... More

Probably the best option in town to try local dishes, but be ready to wait as there is always a line.

This was my first introduction to Mina's food and it did not disappoint. The caipirinha also lived up to expectations. Go outside of lunch hours, or you'll wait in quite a long line.
