Our roots in DeLand, FL

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.


Our new venture in Oviedo, FL

Lately, fueled by our guest’s enthusiasm for our food and atmosphere, we have decided to take a leap of faith, and expand De La Vega to include a second location in the beautiful Oviedo on the Park! We are excited to announce we will have a great outdoor patio overlooking Center Lake Park, in addition to the menu favorites, Chef Nora will create some new dishes with her unique twist on Latin cuisine, combining Latin flavors to produce daring food innovations. Also new to our menu is an array of flavored rum and tequila cocktails, created in Mexico under Mano’s direction that will add an entirely new spin on old time spirits. As this new chapter in our life opens, we, now more than ever, appreciate our loyal customers and look forward to opening our hearts and doors to new ones.


We hope to see you soon in our new location!
