Having recently moved to the Tyler area we have been asking around for restaurant recommendations. Villa Montez was suggested by someone I met in a class so we tried it for lunch and loved it. The old house is gorgeous as are the grounds. Huge tall trees, decks and an outside patio area in the garden they apparently use for... More

My husband and I celebrated our anniversary here. It's very beautiful. I had NY strip with chipotle shrimp. My steak was perfect, tender and juicy! The shrimp was pretty spicy! My husband had the carne azada and he enjoyed his. The salsa they serve is nice and it smokey.. Very different. I also ordered a mojito, which was good. Prices... More

A beautiful location. Excellent fresh food. A nice special occasion place to take out of town friends but reasonably priced enough to dine often. Drinks are great. Fun little bar. Latin spring rolls are excellent. Fresh. Table side guac is very good. Queso is best in town. I typically get the carne asada and they will cook a perfect medium... More

Villa Montez the former Mansion On The Hill was a high end restaurant. Now it is a very affordable place to have a great time on the night or any time at all! The building is very elegant, the service is good, and the food is pretty good too!

I come to villa Montez regularly for both lunch and dinner. The osso bucco is better than I have ever had, anything with chimmichurri sauce is spectacular, the coconut soup is to die for, and the spinach artichoke dip has ruined any other establishment's similar dip for me. My friends joke I should be part owner, but the two brothers... More

Carlos, Mundo, Andrew, James and Gloria make this our absolute favorite place for what I call a fusion of Napa Valley, Argentina, Chile and Mexican cuisine that offers something for everyone. Steaks, Lobster, Fish and everything are prepared with a touch of Carlos and the MundoRita aka hand made Margarita is a must. Like family, I believe I was one... More

We were in Tyler for golf and the Assistant Pro mentioned this place as one of his favorites. I think I can easily add it as one of mine in Tyler as well. Located in a renovated mansion on a hillside, it is owned by brothers one of which introduced himself to my wife and gave her a tour of... More

The shrimp ceviche appetizer is delicious! I had a sweet pork quesadilla for the main meal and it was very nice. I haven't had a bad experience there yet. Keep up the good work!
