Villa Montez

Villa MontezVilla Montez is one of my absolute FAVORITE places to eat in Tyler.  A beautiful location, delicious food, and wonderful service all make Villa Montez one of Tyler’s most desirable dining establishments.  Tyler definitely has its fair share of Mexican restaurants, so if you’re like me you may be hesitant to try yet another one…  However, Villa Montez isn’t what you would expect at all.  Instead of identifying itself as strictly Mexican, Villa Montez boasts a Latin menu offering some traditional favorites as well as a few surprises.

Everything I’ve had a Villa Montez has been outstanding, but a few choices in particular have stood out.   Being a tuna lover, I absolutely love the sashimi grade Mazatlan Aji Azado appetizer.  Also, if you are feeling adventurous, I’d recommend sampling the Brazilian Coconut Soup.  For my entree, I adore the Yucatan Sweet Pork Salad.  What could be better than a fresh green salad with guacamole atop a layer of beans, rice and deliciously sweet and tender pork?  It’s perfection!  Villa Montez also offers an impressive selection of choice steaks, and I’ve heard the shrimp enchiladas are to die for.  Make sure to order one of their specialty margaritas with your dinner.  Just like the food, they are spectacular!

I seriously do not have enough wonderful things to say about Villa Montez.  I suggest that anyone who hasn’t tried it out yet to do as as soon as possible, and if you have been before go again!  The recently expanded patio makes the perfect back-drop for a romantic dinner or a night out with family and friends.

  1. Excellent food and service… Mundo is one of the nicest folks you’ll meet!

  2. David G says:

    Fabulous friends, food and wines…. If you love food and wine, get to know the owners. Carlos and Mundo are the best and will definitely take care of your needs… I strongly recommend the Chilean Sea Bass if you like fish… Don’t forget to have a Mojito, several flavors and if you like Margaritas then you’ll be very happy with the Ultimate…

  3. The food is great and prepared and served in a unique way. It is not regular “Mexican food.” The service is consistently very good to exceptional. Lunch is affordably priced and the portions are good for the money. And the atmosphere is one of the best in Tyler.

  4. Not enough space for the great things I would like to say about Villa Montez!! Food, wait staff, setting, owners kindness, drinks, desserts, prices….love this place!!

  5. What a beautiful deck for outdoor dining, comfortable and elegant inside seating, delicious and gorgeous food presentation! I adore the vegetable and herb gardens and the water features the five times I’ve visited Villa Montez. The owner graciously visits the guests. It is my favorite Tyler place and I hope to go to Villa Montez often.
