We stopped in Deland for a quick visit on our way to Orlando. Have driven past the Deland exit over 50 times but have never gone into the town. What a delight. Beautiful campus of Stetson, stately oak trees, cute downtown filled with "kitchy" stores, historic buildings, and cafes. Since I lived in Spain when in high school, I usually... More

How refreshing it was to read a menu with so many healthy options including vegetarian and gluten free...the waitress had to come back three times before the four of us could make a decision. Then when the entrees came they were beautifully presented, very professional. The taste did not disappoint. It was a wonderful lunch.

I love Nopalitos: Char-grilled cactus layered with cubes of cheese, sweet grilled pineapple, red bell pepper, and guajillo pepper. Obviously they make unique delicious food. I try something new every time I am here, but I always get Nopalitos as my appetizer! You can make a meal for two by order 3-4 tapas - all are delicious!

The flavors of the food were amazingly good and unusual. I would return just for the carmelized hibiscus tacos although everything else on the tapas menu was delicious as well. The service was prompt and courteous.

Wonderful Service, Salmon is always fantastic and the outdoor seating is a plus. They always have great wine specials and it's always a pleasant experience

Four of us ate lunch here. Everyone had a different dish and everyone was pleased. A nice change from typical Mexican fare offered by other restaurants. Pleasant waitstaff, good wine. Limited bar. We will go back.

Four of us visited De La Vega on a Friday night, after seeing the many happy reviews on Trip Advisor. We made a reservation, and were glad we did because it's very popular. And we can see why. We had appetizers (trio with salsa, guacamole, and queso) and chicken banderillas. Both were excellent (although we would have liked more chicken... More

If you want to have a grand taste experience, you must try this restaurant. The nopalitas (cactus with pineapple and a fine sauce) is simply outrageously delicious. The hibiscus tacos are also a real treat-- and an unusual one. Service is excellent, too. The restaurant also has a nice selection for vegetarians and vegans.

This is hands down the #1 place in town. We sat outside and it was a wonderful atmosphere! The staff were helpful and friendly and she seemed to recommend the perfect thing to each of us. The food was fantastic and among the top dishes I've ever had. I wish that I had taken a picture of how beautiful the... More
