Cafe Miranda is not a pretentious spot, nor does it try to be. It has a funky "we'd rather pay attention to the food than to our decor" attitude. The menu is a mile long, and features standard menu items along with some unusual and original offerings. Service was really good; prices were quite reasonable. Try it if you want... More

Café Miranda is so much fun - the service good, and the food excellent! Only snag is it takes ages to choose - the menu is HUGE!! It is all executed very well though, whether simple fish and chips or more fine dining specials. It is casual in style, but that does not undermine the quality of either service or... More

We stopped in for a bite to eat and sat at the bar when the restaurant opened for the day. Counter was greasy, salt & pepper shakers were greasy, napkin dispenser was empty and dirty, and the rack that the bread sits on is covered in grease which then has a thick layer of dust on top. It's obvious that... More

We talk about this restaurant all year long - - and we only come to Rockland for a few weeks each September. The menu is extensive. Covers a wide variety of genres. And Chef Kerry has figured out how to make each plate a bona fide treat. Don't miss the fish chowder among the big meals of sausages, vegetarian fare,... More

We've visited this restaurant several times and have always had a great meal. We dined outside on our last visit and enjoyed one of the last warm evenings of the season. The pasta with mushrooms was absolutely delish. May daughter enjoyed another pasta choice..(the pasta is house made) Another in our party had a pizza. It looked great. The choices... More

The service is efficient and friendly and the food is the delicious treat you deserve when dining out. The servings are generous so I recommend sharing entrees or wandering your way through the small plates with a friend or two. Even Sally's Simple Salad is bountiful (yummy) and could be shared. The menu is vast and just means that one,... More

Every year that we are in the Rockland area we make a pilgrimage to Cafe Miranda. This year was no exception. As always the bread is to die for ( the only problem is eating too much before the main course). Where is there better Lobsta Mac and Cheese - no where that we know of. The menu is so... More

I love this place! Delicious lobster risotto, unique bread, salad that was so delicous it needed no dressing, and a tasty chocolate martini. Waitress was wonderful, and if we get back to Maine, we'll make the time to eat here again.

You must try Café Miranda while in Rockland. Their menu is extensive, their pasta is homemade, and their food is inventively prepared and oh so flavorful. I only wish that we had found it before our last night in Rockland.
