Unique Menu! Tapas and more!

We took a day trip today to Deland because of the reputation of the downtown as a tourist destination. It just so happened that we arrived at lunch time, and De La Vega's menu caught our eye. My wife and I love Tapas, and we have eaten at a number of them in other parts of the country and... read more

I love to eat at De La Vega. The food is original and fresh. It is not your typical Mexican food. I usually try at least one new dish per visit. Sometimes the service is slow.

This was our 5th trip to De La Vega. Each time we go, we find something new and enjoyable to sample. I had the Avocado Grilled Salmon (best meal ever), my Wife enjoyed the Taquiza Gringa, my Son had the Paella, and my Daughter ordered Napalitos (for the 5th time). All the meals were served in a timely manner, and... More

The food is awesome! On my first visit I though I was going to see a menu of Tex-Mex. Was I wrong. The food is one of the best fusion of South American food that I have ever had. It is one of my go to stops when I have vistors. The really great thing is the selections are great... More

We went here with friends who insisted it was the best place in town. We ordered the empanadas and tortilla soup for appetizers. Empanadas were yummy. Soup was different from any tortilla soup I had ever had, but was good. I ordered the Avacado Grilled Salmon Salad, my husband got the enchilada combo, our friends ordered the paella and the...

Very nice place for lunch and/or dinner. The food is original and enjoyable. I love their "healthy" selection. Highly recommended.

After visiting the manatees at Blue Springs State Park, we headed to Deland for lunch at our favorite restaurant, only to find it was no longer there. Replacing its space is De La Vega, an upscale Mexican-Latino restaurant with a wonderfully diverse tapas and entree menu and a sophisticated decor. One of my gustatory goals is finding the perfect mole... More

We went to De La Vegas on a recommendation that this was great mexican food. It was not. It is what I would call (coming from the southwest) "foo-foo" mexican food. Tapas etc., are not really mexican food, but more like "spanish". The food was good, but not what I was expecting. If you like drinking wine with your mexican... More

Manny D, Owner at De La Vega, responded to this review

Dan, I apologize for not meeting your expectations on your last visit to De La Vega. You are totally right, we are not purely Mexican food anymore for one reason: Chef Nora and I started the business 11 years ago and we only offered traditional Mexican food back then. Over the years we have evolved and we have grown as... More

Found this little gem on Main St. in DeLand while there to attend a play at the Athens theater. Great food and wine. Great fusion of flavors and beautiful presentation.
