We had a great meal at Cafe Miranda, but we over-ordered. They have small plates and large ones. Be forewarned: The small plates are plenty large enough. The two of us ordered the Dan Dan noodles and the The Old Thing (cauliflower in an interesting sauce) along with an olive spread. We took home what we didn't eat and it... More

We ate there 3 times in a week and it was truly wonderful. Widely varying menu, but everything is so delicious and portions are very generous. Even the small plates are a full meal for most people and the large plates always left us with take home. We skipped dessert and went next door to Lulus which was wonderful. You... More

We heard great things about this place. We got there at 2:05. It took a few minutes to park and were told we could not be served! There was a table of 6 sitting there with menus in their hands and there was just 2 of us. Sorry, but I think this was poor service. It was also compounded by... More

The inside is pretty cramped and the outside patio is a quirky place but the menu has something for everyone. Not only is the menu large but the food is great. The servers hustle to cover the area but.they do know the menu so ask questions if you have any. The staff is friendly and take good care of you... More

Our party of 4 was looking for a nice dinner after the Owls Head Auto Auction, and found Cafe Miranda. We saw the great reviews on Trip Advisor and we were over joyed to get an outside table on a spectacular night. Service was exceptional with Elizabeth. All the entrees were perfect. MUSCLES IN coconut. Be back soon.

Reservations are in order when trying to book a table at Cafe Miranda. There is limited indoor seating in a small room in front of the kitchen, with a similar number of seats outdoors in summer weather. Our waitress was very helpful and corteous, and maintained a good supply of water on an unusually hot-and-humid Maine late afternoon. There was... More

Our food was very tasty ASIAN inspired; great flavours in both the beef groce and the egg rolls. Very good service too. Met some nice locals who gave good recommendation on local beers.

This summer and last summer, meals at Cafe Miranda were a highlight of our trip. Plenty of choices (almost too many) and good sized portions. It is a small place, so reservations are recommended any day of the week. We plan on returning over and over again.

The perfect place in Rockland for lunch. The food is fantastic and the prices are reasonable. The chef is well known, and has written a book on his recipes. The place to eat lunch in Rockland.
