Monte Vista, a historic district, located in the heart of San Antonio is gorgeous, quaint and quiet. The denizens that live here have incredible taste which must be why some of the best restaurants in the city are located in or around this charming neighborhood.
While not exactly a secret, the restaurants found in Monte Vista are all local's favorites and not frequented by tourists and visitors as much as you'd expect. Regardless of the type of cuisine you're craving, you're in luck, as there's a wide variety of choices.
For Mexican, La Fonda not only offers some of the best food in town, but has one of the most amazing outdoor patios. There's simply nothing quite as satisfying as sipping a margarita and dipping into their fresh-made signature salsa while sitting outside under an ancient tree that is as well-known as the restaurant itself.
For some outstanding pizza, a fresh salad or even just a craft-made cocktail, Barbaro makes a perfect crust topped with an array of unusual yet tasty ingredients. It's a great place to while away the afternoon with friends or family.
Besides casual favorites, Monte Vista has a nice offering of upscale restaurants, such as Bistro Vatel and Mixti. Both are a treat and shouldn't be overlooked, no matter where you're staying in the Alamo city! Mixtli also has a mezcal bar in the same shopping area, The Yard, that serves up some great food.
