The old Mansion provides a wonderful atmosphere, tastefully decorated in line with the architecture. Multiple small, semi-private dining areas keep it cozy and fairly quiet. The menu has appreciable variety with several offerings in each major group. All dishes have a South American flare (not Mexican, certainly not Tex-Mex). Prices are completely reasonable for the food quality and service is attentive and courteous. It's not quite up to true fine dining standards only for the lack of a decent wine list, but then again this type of cuisine can be challenging to pair anyway. Very enjoyable and well worth a visit.

Went there for lunch with colleagues. The food and the service were both pretty good. The view was nice. Chips and Salsa were fresh and plentiful. My salad was missing one of the key ingredients listed for it on the menu, and the waiter did not seem concerned with correcting that mistake. I suspect the restaurant/view is a little more appealing at night due to the location in a large old mansion on a hill.

We visited villa Montez and had a fabulous experience. Manager, Matt, was gracious and gave us a tour of the historical mansion. Cuisine is Latino and is excellent. We ordered Latino rolls and spinach appetizer. Tasty! Chips and salsa were put out for us to snack on...yummy. The chicken dish. The beef carne asana, the pork chop, the Chilean sea bass. All were visually appealing, prepared exquisitely, and superbly delicious!
What a gem in Tyler, Texas!

Great atmosphere, but it ends there. Wait staff uninterested, food took forever then was cold, margarita with no salt or lime, very disappointing.
