De La Vega opened its doors in downtown DeLand a little over a decade ago by a brother and a sister team who wanted to break out of the norm and bring to the town something a little different, a little daring. Over the years Mano and Nora De La Vega have done just that, captivating the town with their Latin fusion dishes full of flavor, imagination, and, above all, heart. De La Vega has found a home in the city of DeLand. We have had the profound privilege of hosting multiple bridal parties, baby showers, graduation parties, romantic date nights, and business lunches. We have watched children grow up within the walls of the restaurant and we have made connections with our guests and employees that will last a lifetime. Throughout the years, De La Vega has evolved into so much more than a restaurant. It has become a home and a family.

This Downtown DeLand eatery has indoor and outdoor seating. Inside, quiet conversation was difficult. Outside, there were lots of people passing by. Their menu offers many tapas, which are large enough for a meal. The hibiscus tapas are something I have not seen on other menus - and quite tasty. One gluten-free member of our party wanted to try the ropa vieja but the menu said it was not gluten-free; the waitress was very willing to talk with the chef and explain why. Many vegetarian options are on the menu - I just don't know how many were vegan options.

The food was tasty but they need to work out the kinks with service. The drink menu was a little weird and overpriced for what it was. It would be nice to see a Latin drink like a caipirinha and high-quality craft cocktails. The ambience and restaurant layout wasn’t very pleasant, but if I had an event to go to at the arena or one of the stadiums, I would definitely consider eating here again.

We had a wonderful meal and great service. We ordered one entree and 3 tapas and shared between 2 couples. Each meal was delicious and we had no room for dessert. Service was timed well and attentive. We will return.

I have never had anything but the most excellent food and friendly service at DeLaVega. It's my go-to place to take out of town visitors. Everyone I have ever taken here has had a wonderful meal.

NEVER EVER TAKE HOT ROD COCONUT BLONDE off the Beer list!

My wife and I live in Orlando and have been coming to De La Vega for a year now, well worth the drive, the food is amazing!!!! We miss our favorite server Puja so very much, but the staff is always so great. Would be great if De La Vega had a restaurant here in Dr. Phillips!

We have eaten here many times and are never disappointed. Recently, we went for our anniversary, and they served us a complimentary dessert. My wife had the chipotle glazed salmon which is one of her favorites. I enjoy this restaurant particularly because I am a vegetarian, and they have many choices. On this visit, I loved the hibiscus tacos which have a superb taste. We also had a sweet plantain appetizer which was excellent. The servers are always helpful and friendly. We have never had a bad experience here. We drive about 40 mins to get there, and it is certainly worth it.
