We are visiting the area on summer vacation, and read great reviews on the place. Said "kid friendly", so we went for it. Well it was very cool looking place, but could tell it was not organized or ran well, as we stood at the door for 5 minutes waiting for someone to seat us. Then we were seated, and... More

We had a wonderful meal and fantastic service once again. We sat at the bar. So much fun to watch the chefs here...working magic. We always make it a point to eat here when we are in town. This was the first place we visited this time. Well done Cafe Miranda!!!!

We loved everything our group ordered at Cafe Miranda, particularly the lobster risotto. The one thing I would recommend to anyone going for the first time, however, is to SHARE PLATES! Calling the portions generous is an understatement. But if you order your own plate, it's so good that you'll want to finish it all, and will toddle out of... More

My wife and I had brunch at Cafe Miranda and sat at the bar which overlooks the kitchen. What a fun experience! It's truly amazing how chefs work so hard and all of the responsibilities they have. It's hard to imagine until you actually watch them work for an hour or two. Anyway, my wife had an amazing Camino de... More

What a find thanks to all of my fellow Tripadvisor reviewers. This was just a terrific restaurant. Went there with our daughter and some friends recently while in the Rockland area. This place was just what we were looking for. Cozy environment ( a wood stove outside on their patio), an eclectic menu with so many choices it took us... More

We brought some Midwestern friends to Cafe Miranda after a long morning in the Farnsworth Museum just around the corner. Everyone was ready for a good lunch-- and no one was disappointed. Our friends shared a lobster mac and cheese and a lobster pizza and were rapturous. My wife raved about her fish tacos and I loved my gussied up... More

Seriously delicious layers of flavors and textures in the haddock tacos. If fish tacos are on a menu at a restaurant I usually order them.... From Mexico to Maine these were the best fish tacos yet. A must try.

We went for lunch today. Jersey Fries out of this world. Excellent blend of spice, smoke, sweet, and freshness. I could have just eaten that and been content. The beef tacos equally flavorful and satisfying. Highly recommend this place if you want great food and are sick of the lobster roll/chowder houses.
