Great place, love trying new things

Fabulous tapas! Unique flavors and entres Not your typical Mexican restaurant by no means .Enjoy sitting outside and watching the world go by. Not many tables inside, so weather permitting, enjoy people watching

Taking a drive from our hometown an hour away we came across this great little restaurant. Has sidewalk seating but a little too hot today to sit outside. The food was well presented and it taste amazing. What a great little place - kudos to the chef who is a woman. Great to hear they have been in business since... More

There are a number of highly-rated restaurants within Deland. De La Vega was great choice. Super service and an incredibly delicious and diverse menu more than satisfied two adults and a teen. The value was exceptional as well. I am certain we will return the next time we have the pleasure of being in town.

Enjoyed being there, service excellent as was the food. Would go there again. This is not your usual Spanish or Mexican food. Especially liked the Enchilada combo dish.

DH and I went to have dinner before going to Athens Theater and to celebrate his birthday. We have eaten here before but this time was outstanding! Brooke was our waitress and she was attentive and very friendly. We ordered "Taquitos de Camarones" which are shrimp tacos served with corn tortillas and guacamole for our appetizer and loved it! We... More

De La Vega has excellent options. The menu is diverse and there is something for everyone. The staff will also custom make you a dish if what you want isn't on the menu. (I ordered black bean and rice tacos which were delicious!)

I'm usually stingy with 5 stars but I wish I could give this one 8. Elegant yet comfortable. Lots of choices. Creative and original and so delicious. It was like eating poetry -- but in a good way. For about the same price as a Denny's meal, you get something truly memorable. For high-quality "slow" food, it arrives pretty quickly,... More

My dad and I ate here, and it was absolutely awesome. We did a tapas combo selection and it was more than enough for two people. We got an excellent recommendation from our waitress, and we will be returning the next time he is in town.

I have eaten here 5 times, and every time I walked out stuffed and happy. The food is fresh, delicious, authentic and my favorite dessert is the FLAN!!!

This is a great little Mexican restaurant with a bit of a twist. Always a treat to dine there either inside or on the sidewalk. Food and service is fantastic. Many items not seen in most Mexican restaurants. Only drawback is you almost always have to endure an emergency vehicle blasting its siren during the meal. It is on the... More
