Welcome to Villa Montez

Villa Montez is a casual family restaurant that’s been serving the best of the cocina Latina (Latin kitchen) since 2007.

Our festive, friendly space is perfect for special occasions or gathering for a relaxed, memorable meal with friends and family.

We look forward to seeing you.

Growing up, our mother taught us classic Mexican recipes and techniques, but she was also a trailblazer who took inspiration from other cultures to create new dishes.

Today, it’s called “fusion!”

As you will see from our dishes, her values still guide us today: you’ll find plenty of familiar plates, along with new takes on some of your old favorites.

We like to know where our food comes from, which is why we have an herb garden on the property and source grass-fed beef from a local supplier — it’s how we grew up eating!

We’re proud to be a popular choice for Tyler’s special occasions like birthdays and wedding rehearsals, but Villa Montez is also a great spot for a family dinner or romantic date night!

See you soon!

When we found the location in Tyler, Texas, that is now Villa Montez, it was an old mansion that sat high on a hill over looking a secluded part of East Texas. We made it a home for fine dining, evening enjoyment, and a memorable location to bring your family and friends.


Chef Carlos and his team hand select ingredients for every dish on the menu. Seasonal changes allow us to delivery fresh, authentic dishes to your table daily.


Locally owned and family operated, Villa Montez and the Montez Brothers restaurants have become a main-stay in Tyler, Texas. It is our honor to support local organizations and fellow locally owned businesses.


Reservations Welcome!
