Not your typical Mexican food restaurant. Great Latin food and a pleasant waitstaff. In nice weather the patio is the place to sit. Love the appetizers.

I have visited this restaurant several times and it has always been a great experience. The portions are large and the prices are very reasonable. The service is a little slow so I wouldn't recommend going here if you are in a hurry, but it is a great location for special events when you aren't in a hurry. The food... More

While in town I met some friends here; we had a large group. The service was good, and the food even better. Their appetizer with Mex egg rolls was killer, and every one of us loved our dinner choices. I had the fish tacos; really good. I highly recommend this place if you have some friends that you want to... More

We have dined here several times and are never disappointed. They serve traditional Latin food which is a little different for the area. It's always really good and they grow their own herbs and vegetables on the property. You can dine in or out on the patio and are always served promptly with a smile and lots of knowledge. The...

My wife and I went to Villa Montez for our date night recently. We ate outside and the atmosphere was amazing. The food was delicious. One of the best I've had in Tyler TX. I love the food but the highlight was the Chino Latino Rolls. It's an Appetizers, but wow. Loved it.

A more beautiful location does not exist in East Texas. Carlos is the chef and Edmumdo runs the service side. A great combo. The food has a distinctive South American flavor. All fresh seafood and a good wine list that is loaded with good affordable selections.

While the restaurant itself is very attractive...the grounds are gorgeous!...the meal didn't meet my expectations after hearing the raves my hosts gave it. I had the evening special of a steak with chimichurro sauce and shrimp. It was bland and the beans and rice that were served with it were equally unimpressive. The tres leche cake was amazing and redeemed... More
