Amazing food and service!
The food,service and value were outstanding. The staff was welcoming and our server, Kirsten was kind and amazing. The dishes are creative and flavorful. The ambiance and decorations are humble but that adds to the relaxed good time. Loved it.
Innovative menu. Great for vegetarians and vegans but also great for carnivores.
The food was delicious and we enjoyed the 7-7-7 happy hour before our show at the Athens Theatre. While our service was not great, he food was awesome
$7 for $7 menu items are great to pair with a few entrees for a group gathering.
Our party of three celebrated Mother's Day at De La Vega on Sunday. We had a reservation, for which we were thankful. Everything about our experience was delightful. The food tasted fresh and delicious and looked fabulous. The complimentary Flan for dessert was a wonderful surprise! Thank you for a memorable Mother's Day!
Wonderful food. Great vegan options too. Try the Mole - it is amazing. And the hibiscus tea has a beautiful fresh taste. Wish they would 'up' the decor a bit to match the beautiful food!
Hands down the greatest dining experience of my life the staff went above and beyond to make my anniversary one for the books thank you not to mention the good was EXCELLENT!!!!!
Great authentic Mexican cuisine. It was a beautiful evening so we dined outside, the weather was perfect, the service was attentive and professional, the food was hot, fresh and full of flavor. I’m no food critic, but what more could you want??!!
The food was wonderful! We had 5 in our party and ordered 5 different items. The rice balls and hibiscus tacos were my personal favorite. We will be back soon!
This was not our first visit.
I can only speak for myself. I ordered the hibiscus taco. It was an overall disappointment. The taco was greasy and the only taste I could discern was vinegar. The black mixture inside the taco had no hint of any of the flavor treats that were advertised. I have handled dried daylilies in Chinese cooking and was told to cook them twice--the first time in clean water and then rinsed with new water to remove any bitterness or objectional color. Perhaps this product needs refinement.
Service was great
Always outstanding. Thank you for your continued goal at providing the best quality food and service.
The service was above and beyond only topped by the food!!!
The food was very good. Our waitress was exceptional. She was friendly, informative and very attentive to our needs. She was A+.
Extremely difficult to carry on a conversation due to the fact that the exterior door is kept wide open so you get to listen to all the traffic going by (Sunday afternoon). Clean environment. Waitress was polite but not very attentive. Our meals arrived minus the appetizers that she had forgotten about. When asked about whether or not they were still going to be served, we found out that she neglected to place the order. The cuban sandwiches and plantains were good and fresh tasting. Black bean and tortilla soups were just okay, nothing special. We've eaten here maybe a dozen times since they opened years ago. It was a much better experience overall when they first opened. I would recommend the cuban sandwich and requesting a table far away from the front door.
De La Vega is one of our favorite restaurants in the area. We have been enjoying De La Vega since its opening in the early 2000’s. Fabulous authentic Mexican cuisine! Staff is always friendly and helpful and clearly enjoy their job and their customers. Once in awhile we get to say hello to Nora. De La Vega is a must do ...
Overall great meal. A bit confusing for Vegans when non vegan desserts are included on the Vegan menu. The fried ice cream dessert was exceptionally disappointing, the shale was stale and overall not tasty. The service was outstanding and the value reasonable, a good choice in DeLand.
Food is consistently excellent. Our waitress Nicolette was spectacular.
I took my wife here on our date night. I love all the tapas on the menu. We were able to sample our way through so many fun things. The food was honestly excellent, and the menu was extremely creative. I always enjoy everything we do in DeLand, but this place was an awesome find! :-)
Outstanding meal with great menu choices. Service was efficient, knowledgeable and helpful on suggestions. Food was well prepared, excellent taste, temperature and presentation. Vegan choices were outstanding. The one disappointment is desserts, this is the second time we've ordered the fried ice cream and the second time it was unavailable due to ice cream being too soft. There is obviously a storage problem with the fried ice cream, I suggest getting it off the menu so I am not forced to a second choice that I really did not want.
Unpleasantly loud and poorly supervised children in a central area..
De La Vega never disappoints! Fun to share tapas and the sangria is awesome! Great for dinner before a show at Athens Theatre! Reasonable prices and good food!
Service and food were great. Love this place. We were celebrating a birthday and eating before the theatre. We had a lovely evening.
Great time and great food we shared tapas and Sangria for girls dinner out!
Great food & service! Love this place! Always flavorful euthentic Latin cuisines! Love the combination of species, flavor & presentations! Great wine! Highly recommended !!!
always love de la vega, the tortilla soup is unlike any other I’ve had.
Delicious food and drinks. I will definitely be returning!
THE HIBISCUS TACOS ARE FANTASTIC. THE WAITRESS WAS VERY NICE. THEY GAVE ME ALL DIFFERENT SAUCES WHICH I LOVE. I LOVE GOING HERE. FRESH FOOD AND THEY DO ACCOMODATE YOU IF YOU DON'T EAT LATIN, LIKE GRILLED SHRIMP AND VEGGIES IS WHAT MY FRIEND GETS. THEY CAN DO STEAK AND SALAD, WHAT EVER YOU WANT. I LOVE IT HERE
Divine creative food. Busy restaurant, so glad I mAde a reservation. Nice sized portions
We celebrated my mom’s 85th Birthday!!! Service and food are always wonderful!!! Delicious fresh ingredients! Hibiscus tea and tacos to die for!!! 🌺🌺🌺🌺
It's a real gem of a place. Good food. Good service. A great addition to downtown DeLand
Went there before theater. Awesome meal. Good for a date.
New for us. Tasty food. Relaxed atmosphere. I had the avacado salmon. Delicious.
We really enjoyed our meal. 1 of us four is a vegetarian, almost vegan, and was so delighted to have 3 soup options that were suitable with vegetable broth base. Also the vegetarian options were very good. 3 of us ordered something different and shared. The Quinoa Black Bean cake was Delicious and our vegetarians favorite as well as mine (I do eat chicken and fish only). Our other friend eats meat but stayed vegie with us and was totally satisified. The hard core meat eater with us had ordered chicken empanadas and liked, but not in love with the dining choices. WE will definitely return again. A really nice dining experience. Also I loved that you can order desert "bite" on the flan and tres leches.... perfect when you want to have both deserts and can't decide! Love the idea for when you just want a little "something sweet" after dinner but not a whole dessert. Great place!
They were very accomodating. My friend eats plain food and they made her grilled plain shrimp and grilled zuchinni. I had my favorite Hibiscus tacos....Everyone is so nice there .
I enjoyed the creative salmon dish! It was delicious!
We enjoyed a wonderful birthday dinner with delicious food in a relaxed comfortable setting. Appreciated the timing of the tapas.
Service was good, taste was average, food was way overpriced.
First time and it will be my last time. This place was recommended by a friend and it rated well on Tripadvisor but it LACKED. Let me count the ways:
1. The food was super late getting to our table
2. Too much salt in the food
3. A bit overpriced
4. Lunch menu selection was not that great
I heard so many good things about this place so tried it out on a sunday evening. Not busy at all so the server was attentive, which was nice. She offered samples of the drinks, and I sampled the Hibiscus margarita. It was good enough to get a whole glass but very much on the sweet side. I did appreciate the sample offering though and thought that was helpful since I'm usually an indecisive person. Ordered the chicken enchiladas. They were tasty, chicken was well-cooked the mole sauce was unique but tasty. Overall though, the dish wasn't impressive. For the price I expected a bigger portion and maybe a side of something.
