Overrated!

This was my second visit and I was left with the same impression so I feel my opinion has validity. The food is good but not worth the trouble to get it. Unless you eat at unusual hours you will have a wait. This wouldn't be so bad if there was a good place to wait which there isn't.I like... read more

The food here is largely locally sourced. There are many options for the vegetarian or vegan as well as for the gluten free person. Foods you would never have thought of to put together. And there is nothing pretentious about it. You can feel comfortable in jeans and a sweater or dressed up. But, you need reservations. The tables are... More

Cafe Miranda is HANDS-DOWN the BEST restaurant in Rockland, Maine and all of the mid-coast and beyond!!! The food is amazing and the portions are LARGE! Bring your wallet, though... It is pricy, but when you get your meal, you will see why. Most of the time you can't eat it all by yourself. The beer selection is also very... More

The hard part was choosing from the very big menu which sometimes makes you think that they can't do everything well. We just shared three starters, with the great bread, because we saw big entrees, and it was plenty, and all inventive and good.
