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

All 5 of our group had a great meal. Local authentic food, friendly staff and great value. Definitely worth stopping by on your way through the market

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.

Great food, unique and you don't find anywhere else in BH or in the world! It has already won many local, national and international awards. Mercado central is a must go place in BH, but the visit is not at all complete without having the delicious food at Casa Cheia.

The restaurant has been awarded several prizes in a local food contest (tradicional food of Minas Gerais state).The contest is called "Comida di Buteco" and... More

Loved the "canjiquinha". Beer alway cold and lots of variety. You can lunch or just drink and have appetizers. All food are made based in local culture.

Amazing food, kind staff, great place to drink a cold beer, eat one of the Comida di Buteco Festival's fingerfood and, of course, chat with friends. Last time there I tried "mexidoido chapado", 6th place at 2006 Comida di Buteco Festival and was really great, starting with the presentation. It's a nice place to feel the atmosphere from Belo Horizonte... More

My wife and I took a taxi from the Ouro Minas hotel to the Mercado Central and we asked he if she could recommend a restaurant in the market. She told us to try the Casa Cheia and we honestly were surprised. The restaurant did not even have a sign with the name of the restaurant on the upper level... More
