We strolled by this restaurant a few weeks ago while walking the art fair. The food looked wonderful and we asked for a table. Unfortunately they had a wait and we were on a schedule. Came back weeks later and ordered 3 out of 6 recommendation that the waiter gave us. Appetizer - Asperinas de Chorizo. The corn patties were... More

Our favorite go to restaurant when we are in Deland. Meals are presented beautifully and taste incredibly. Entrees are in the teens. Ivan was our server today and he was very good!

We absolutely loved the food, I'm very particular about Mexican food having grown up in California, I had the chicken enchiladas...wow t h email best mole I've had in any restaurant here in Florida. We will be coming back! My husband also enjoyed his selection.

This was a first time visit to De La Vega for us and we enjoyed it very much! The service was excellent, the presentations of our lunch choices were great and the food delicious. Three of the four of us ordered tapas. After talking with the server, we opted to each get two half orders -- that way we could... More

After the excellent Stetson Museum we stopped here for lunch. An excellent and different menu, good for veggies. Recommend two different half dishes rather than just one main. I thought both of mine were excellent and differing tastes but my wife thought her chicken was hopelessly overcooked and the hibiscus flower far too vinegary so I guess there is an... More

Previously named Penanchos, De La Vega is an awesome Mexican restaurant - but this is not your typical (at all) Mexican food. The Chef is excellent and the service is always great.

DE LA Vegas has the best cheese empanadas around. Their appetizers are all great. Service is always great and the ambience is wonderful. Recommend for any occasion.

Very nice place, with sidewalk dining available. Always delicious and classy. The chef is very creative. Great salads. They have hibiscus ice tea, which is delicious. I love their flan!

We've lived in Deland now for a little over a year, and this is our favorite place to eat. Sitting outside, drinking a glass of wine and having some tapas is a great way to spend an afternoon or evening. We like to think of downtown Deland as winter park with pickups and jeeps in stead of mercedes and jaguars... More

I wanted to like this restaurant so badly since it came highly recommended by my friends. I wanted my partner to have a special birthday meal here but we left disappointed in the food and sad that I spent $76 on a meal I would not wish on anyone. What we ordered: 1 glass of SANGRIA: lacking in flavor and... More
