Description: Sun Ra is one of those places in life where once you go, you wonder why you didn’t try it before. From the road side the exterior is an unassuming Caribbean wooden house set in a pretty garden lit up by dancing lights in the trees. You head through the wooden gate, and as you round the corner onto the gallery your senses are sent into overload: from the aromas of fresh cooked food from the kitchen; the warm and calming effect created by the lighting; the stunning views of the harbour on which the restaurant is located, to the warm welcome of owners Betty and Mirko, and then of course there is the sound of jazz and new world music that forms the cool, chilled out backdrop to your evening. Named after the talented jazz pianist who was so crazy he truly believed he was from another planet, Sun Ra Restaurant, is far from crazy but it is a vibrant place to hang out with a definite European atmosphere. Sun Ra was in fact a great friend of portrait photographer Mirko Boscolo half of the husband and wife couple who own Sun Ra, and the jazz lover in the family, and whose photographs of Sun Ra were the inspiration for the simple, contemporary style of the restaurant. A perfect melding of jazz, art and culture and superb lunch and dining. This restaurant really is simple, in its menu, food, wines and attitude. The Mediterranean influence on the menu is clear, what is not at first obvious, is that every single thing listed is made from scratch fresh including the bread, daily. As Betty describes that evenings options to you, it does become clear that the menu changes daily to accommodate local fresh ingredients, such as Lobster sald, Hot Fish Trio, Sea Food Linguine. The lunch and dining experience is casual and laid back but the service is fast and first class. A mixture of wines from both old and new worlds which complement the foods perfectly are sold by the glass or bottle along with fresh juices and harmoniously mixed drinks. And of course excellent Italian coffee! A dinghy dock leads right next to the restaurant patio making it perfect for persons staying on board at the Antigua Yacht Club Marina, Falmouth Harbour Marina and the Catamaran Marina. Betty and Mirko welcome everybody with a huge smile, you have the feeling you are being welcomed into their own home. This restaurant is one of those perfect little finds you will keep coming back to. Open for Dinner: Monday to Saturday from 06:00 pm to 10:00 pm Lunch: Wednesday, Thesday and Friday from 12:00 pm to 02:30 pm

Went for dinner last night and received a warm welcome from the owners
To begin with we had a drink in a delightful little seating area where we looked at the menu
The owners were very proud of the local produce in there menu all served with either an Italian or Caribbean twist
All courses were tremendous and easily the best food we have had to date
Prices were reasonable and I can't recommend highly enough

We visited Sun Ra on our trip to Antiqua last week, it was a table of six we each ordered a delicious meal. I would highly recommend everyone enjoyed their meal and they even made me a vegan meal which is usually difficult. The location is beautiful on the water overlooking the dock and the staff is great!

Excellent service, inspirational menu reflected in the delicious meals presented so beautifully and efficiently. Make sure you listen to the waiters description of each dish on the menu it is said so eloquently. The restaurant overlooks stunning Falmouth Harbour and I would recommend it highly.
