We all enjoyed our food at Cafe Miranda. I ordered a small plate that was actually huge- the roasted vegetables with ricotta and chicken. It was really tasty. We had made a reservation so we didn't have to wait long to be seated, but we waited pretty long for everything else after that. It was hard to get our server's... More

We spent the day in Rockland and wanted to grab a late lunch. Unfortunately, we were too late for lunch at Miranda's (they close at two) so we opted for an ice cream at Lulu's with the goal of going to Miranda's for dinner. And are we glad that we did. The food is delicious, unique and favorable. I shared... More

Just off Main Street on Oak. We had the Cassoulet and Pasta. In the cassoulet there was a higher ratio of meats to beans; different than what we had in the South of France, but very good. Pasta very nice. A busy place; call for a reservation.

Had the best lunch today with the poorest service... mainly due to understaffing and lack of organization. Pity, because the food was absolutely fantastic. Carol's mussels with marinara sauce, fresh oregano and focaccia.Delicious, $12 My Deconstructed Nachos...a fire baked mixture of 4 cheeses, black beans, red onion, poblanos and jalapeño with a side of lime dashed tortilla chips and fresh...

Our B&B suggested Cafe Miranda. We sat at the bar overlooking the kitchen. Every diner at the bar was a regular who insisted it was their favorite restaurant in Rockland. Count us among the believers. Food was incredible. Provincial preparation with local ingredients masterfully assembled. Plus, unlike many restaurants in Maine, they had vegetables. This is a very fine restaurant.... More

After touring the Farnsworth, my husband and I were told Cafe Miranda was a great place to get lunch. When we got there there were two couples ahead of us, and we were told by the ?hostess ?waitress? that it would be about 10 minute wait. 30 minutes later we were seated. 45 minutes to an hour after we were...

Cute little house with a super brunch on Sunday. Good Bloody Marys and fries too. The Portabella Hash is excellent. The wood burning oven made the mushrooms unbelievably good. The Beef Groce had just the right spice. Loved it all. Fun staff too.

If I could rate Cafe Miranda with zero stars I would. I've visited in the past and loved the food so I made sure to include on my list of restaurants to visit when I was back in Maine. I ignored other comments about poor service but I shouldn't have. I visit for a late midweek lunch and although there... More

Perhaps it was an off day but our food took more than an hour to arrive after ordering. Several other tables complained and one group had to take their food to go. Te macaroni dish was burned and very bland. All four of us found the main dishes disappointing but the salads were fresh. The fries were dried out, yet... More

I reviewed this place back in 2012 and loved it. However, we ate here recently and I wanted to give it an update. The food is still excellent! The staff is still friendly and welcoming. But, we had to wait an hour to get our food! We came for lunch and thought we may have to stay for dinner. They... More
