We love eating at Cafe Miranda. We each have our favorite dish but love to veer from our regular choices to try something from the scores of other interesting choices. Everyone can find something they like. The menu is extensive. Recommend making a reservation as they fill up quickly at meal time.

The huge menu is always interesting and changing. If you like entertainment with your meal, try sitting at the bar and watch the chefs.

Considering how great the reviews are, I must have been there on an off day. I went for lunch and the food was mediocre at best. Too much melted cheese in my sandwich. The appetizer with French fries and green was not great. The only good point was the dessert with blueberries.

We enjoyed dinner at Cafe Miranda. The decor is eclectic and the food is delicious. A warning - the portions are really large. We over ordered, but enjoyed trying to finish our dinner.

For such a small restaurant, the menu is incredible! My husband and I had a steak that was on the specials. Very good and an ample portion. I had a pasta with crab. Excellent! I too had an very large portion and would have been happier with a smaller meal. They have small plates, but since it was our first... More

One of our favorite places to dine. My husband and I try to celebrate our anniversary dinner here each summer and thought it would be a great place to bring friends from out of town last night. Impressive menu, always good pasta dishes, yummy cocktails, and good service. Some of our favorites are the oven roasted veggies, mushroom pasta, old... More

Began going again last summer and have eaten there about 6 times since then. A major sense of humor, youthful exuberance and solid cooking. Not trying to be cute and major sized portions make Miranda a wonderful asset to the art scene and the city in general. There is almost anything one could hope to find. Pretty good bar and... More

I was in Rockland last night to attend the show at the Strand theater, which is just about a block away. I called ahead and was able to get a table, even though the place was packed (it was Friday night, after all). The ambience was welcoming, the waitress friendly and helpful, and the food was exceptional. They have an... More

This is our must do restaurant experience when friends come to midcoast Maine. Imaginative and Expansive menu, local products. As all is made to order, enjoy conversation with friends while waiting for your meal. Sooooo worth the wait! For the ultimate experience, request a seat at the counter
