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

Reservation for 8:30. Seated at 8:55. Party of 8 people. Two good things, reasonable price and ceviche appetizer. Margarita shrimp, the shrimp and sauce were good, but the black beans were extremely salty and the white rice needed help. Seafood enchilada sauce was bland. Salad was terrible. Watered-down dressing. We waited 1 hour to receive our food. Very slow. We... More

I was stunned when we pulled over: Villa Montez is a piece of beauty in the middle of its pretty bland surroundings! The mansion's design, with art pieces hung all over the wall, will also make you feel like dining at a luxury home. I had the Brazilian Coconut Soup and oh my! A MUST TRY! The queso (served with...

We visited Tyler about a month ago and were told we needed to eat at Villa Montez. It was definitely the highlight of our visit. The food is fantastic and the service is excellent! My favorite was the Shrimp with a tequila lime cilantro cream sauce on it. I literally wanted to pick up the plate and lick it clean.... More

I've been here twice and it was even better the second time! The tuna appetizer is to die for! I even ate the zucchini with it and I can't stand zucchini that's how good it was! Also the coconut soup was really good and filling! And all of the food is at such a good price for what you get!... More

We sat out on the deck on a still, warm spring evening. The deck is surrounded by overhanging trees strung with lights, providing a peaceful, pleasant place to eat. The service was outstanding, and the food very tasty, fresh, and well-prepared. I had a vegetable quesadilla, and my wife raved about her tuna steak, the signature dish of the restaurant,... More
