Three Stones was recommended to us by a friend that lives six blocks away from the restaurant. It was a pleasure from the friendless on the phone when making a reservation, to the other restaurant goers, to the authentic ness of the environment and food to the eventual check and departure. If anyone wants to eat a fantastic meal and... More

I've traveled in Mexico, and South and Central America enough to know what "authentic" food from this region tastes like so I knew what to expect. Still, the experience was disappointing. The service was awful. Granted, the server got sat 5 tables at once - something the management should have known better than to have done, but she was over-worked... More

The price is right, but the food doesn't have much to do with Mexico beyond the names of the dishes.

It's a little off the main drag if you're walking the town, but well worth it- you can definitely get parking nearby too. I would recommend you make a reservation if you are going at a prime time- it's pretty small and very popular. It is a bit pricey- but if you're used to the northeast, you won't get sticker... More

Had dinner at this small restaurant while dropping my daughter off at camp. After being greeted by the owner and assisted with my menu selections I settled on a chicken salbute (deep fried tortilla) and a pork panucho (pan fried tortilla stuffed with beans). Toppings included a crunchy cucumber and cilantro salad and marinated red onions (cebolla curtida). They were... More

Three Stones sounds like a strange name for a Mexican restaurant, even in Vermont. The name describes an ancient Mayan cooking technique -- and we were thrilled with the results. In addition to excellent service, very good drinks, and super food, the outdoor dining area (only used when the Vermont weather is civilized) overlooks a river and an appealing small... More

This tiny Mayan restaurant was discovered two years ago by a friend. This was my first visit. If you are expecting run-of-the-mill Mexican fare, this is not the place. You will not be served chips and salsa as soon as you sit down--or at all. Everything is made from scratch and the sauces are complex and wonderful. Although they could... More

The food here is made from the heart, is full of soul and authenticy. Worth the effort and trip. Live 40 miles away and have been here 4x. Wed-Sat. Great vibe. Very, very gracious and friendly staff.

We went on a whim and a recommendation from a friend. Dinner only, modest menu and small fun place. The menu gave great choices. I had the special, Polly one of the tortilla from the grill. The special was a pair of chorizo empanadas - it was so good and came with a great salad, beans and rice. I loved... More

Every meal that I've had at Three Stones is excellent. The ingredients are always fresh and locally sourced as much as possible. There are usually only about five items on the menu, but I never get tired of them. My favorites are the pumpkin seed empanadas and bean-filled, deep fried uah (tortillas).The portions are fairly large, and the prices are... More
