Lovely setting and good food

This is a nice place to relax and enjoy lunch or dinner. The old restored home makes a lovely setting if dining indoors or on the patio in nice weather. The menu is varied with a selection of tasty dishes. Prices are reasonable especially for lunch.

This is an incredible dining experience in East Texas that can compare with any in the U.S.! The menu features a unique style of cuisine that can be described as Latino, but that does not do it justice. They offer a large variety of cocktails, beers, and some very interesting wines along with nightly specials that are moderately priced.

it is a great experience and the food is consistently good. I use to eat here monthly for a luncheon meeting and everyone loved it the same. My fav is the Chino Latino rolls.

We tried Villa Montez instead of our usual Mexican place while passing through Tyler. It is a little off the beaten path (but not too hard to find) in a pretty old mansion with lots of shady patio seating built in the 40's. We arrived about 8 pm without a reservation, and the place was full. We were greeted promptly... More

I would have given this restaurant a 3 out of 5 if I was only rating the food. However, the location, the decor, the ambiance and the waitstaff all factor in to make the experience more than that. Perhaps my expectations, which were based upon the information I read online, were too high. The food was just ok but all... More

When I review in my own hometown, I have to at least try twice before giving a critique. I can proudly say that this place is the real deal when it comes to presentation, preparation, and representation. This restaurant offers elegant dining in a beautiful setting with a well-trained staff that gives a new definition of catering to their customers.... More

We stumbled upon this restaurant and LOVED it! It's in an old house and the environment is wonderful. Service was amazing! Food was fantastic! There were a group of 9 of us and we went there mid-afternoon. Everyone raved about their food. I had grilled fish tacos and the shrimp soup. Both were amazing. And the prices are reasonable! Loved... More
