Our favorite restaurant in Deland. Staff and the De La Vega family are wonderful, friendly, welcoming, professional. Menu is so creative and varied. We always take visitors there for a meal. And love the New Years Eve dinner there.

As a Deland resident, I don't know why I hadn't gone to De la Vega until now. And it is one of those places where you think: why did I waited so long? I visited for lunch and was presently surprised. Service was fast, efficient, and the food was VERY good. I will definitely visit again.

Every time I have been to De La Vega I have NOT been disappointed. The food is always very fresh, colorful and full of flavor. The staff is extremely knowledgeable on the food and wine and very friendly. Excellent place to go when you are in Downtown DeLand.

From the service to the food, we had a wonderful dining experience. Everything is fresh, colorful and delicious. The salmon was flavorful and cooked perfectly. The desserts were awesome. We will definitely be back and try more options. You can't go wrong.

Always great service, and a unique, creative menu based on actual Mexican cuisine — not what you would typically expect or experience. Family run and it shows. Attention to detail that you wouldn't expect to find at twice the price. Open your mind to what Mexican food should be.

De La Vega is a different take on Spanish Food. A quaint little restaurant on Woodland Blvd. in Deland. De La Vega serves up some interesting and quite tasty dishes. In the mood for something completely different, then this might be your spot. Try the Hibiscus Tacos. I'll admit, sounds a bit nasty...yuck...flower tacos? And actually you will be surprised...they... More

It's a nice place but I'm not a great Spanish food person. It's very authentic I will say. The Mole sauce is made from scratch so if that is your thing, this sauce is where it's at.

Great food, drinks, and service. Jalapeño margarita was great as was the plantain soup and everything we ordered. Nice sidewalk seating too.

We had a wonderful evening ...Loved this little restaurant with it's bright and beautiful paintings on display and it's bright and tasty fare. We started with Plantain Tacitas (Sweet plantain cups with caramelized hibiscus infused with red wine, balsamic, and then sprinkled with fresh Mexican cheese) and for the main we had Chipotle glazed Salmon (Wild Salmon on a bed...
