Beautiful old home with unimaginably beautiful landscaping. The food is plentiful and amazing. You have to experience it for yourself to believe it. One of the best meals I've ever eaten. It is a bit on the pricey side, but SOOOO worth it!

Villa Montez has very interesting dishes with a South American twist. Their patio is beautiful and my favorite place for sharing a few of their amazing appetizers with friends.

We were there for a business meal. The parking lot was packed not a spot left. Had to park on the gravel. Even so our service was prompt and we had a dedicated waiter for our group. The plates are definitely big enough to spare.
