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

My wife and I were looking for a restaurant in DeLand and decided against De La Vega because we didn't want Mexican food. Lucky for us, the restaurant we selected was closed and De La Vega was in the next block and open for business. We had an outstanding, memorable meal, which was Latin/South American in flavor, not at all... More

This restarant should be rated higher than it is. Don't sit outside if you don't like it. Good food costs more than fast food. You get what you pay for and that is true here. We enjoy dining at De La Vega very much. Go with an open mind ready to try new and different things.

Every once in a while when my family goes out I tell the wait staff that I want the chef to cook something off of the menu for me but not to let me know what they are going to cook. Did that here and was served one of the best Mexican meals that I have had in years. The... More
