My wife and I recently stopped on our way to North Georgia. This is a great Latin restaurant in Gainesville, Fl. The place is very popular with the UF students, as the prices are great as is the food. Very clean and comfortable. Highly recommended.

Great Cuban food at a cheap price. Couldn't really decide what to get because there were so many excellent choices on the menu. This place is always busy and the service is attentive.

Mi Apa has some pretty good Latin food. It's a good place for a quick but good lunch or dinner. It's a great place for people to try out different kinds of Latin food.

Place was very clean and staff was very polite and attentive, especially considering that they all seemed to be in their teens. Food was okay, nice presentation and served fast, but only the appetizer (stuffed potatoes) was served hot-although they tasted like instant potatoes, not...More
