We went to Sun Ra on a beautiful evening during the 2016 Christmas holidays. Being Italian, I try to avoid Italian restaurants abroad, but in Antigua this seems impossible, given the very high number of Italian or Italian-inspired places. Overall we found Sun Ra to probably be the best of all the Restaurants we visited in Antigua, where both food... More

Not only was the food interesting and well prepared, but the friendly, hardworking and down-to-earth staff made the experience so much more enjoyable. They don't mind to joke around, talk, and really become friends with whoever walks through the door. Great location, with a view on the marina. Be sure to reserve, it gets packed!

The best restaurant we've been to on the island. The service is hard to fault. Food is original and very taste, all explained and very fresh. Wines good too. It's set right on the front of the harbour, lovely view of the boats. The price is spot on. You pay for what you get so I don't think it's expensive.... More

We dined at Sun Ra twice in one week. That says it all. Very interesting food and yummy too. The owner is a delight and sets an excellent example of hard work and great customer service for her staff. Despite an electrical failure in the whole area last night (just as we sat down), the Sun Ra team adapted with... More

Everything we had was well-prepared and the service was good here (service can be interesting on Antigua...). A little over-priced if you are watching your wallet, imho, and portions on the small size compared to in the US at a comparably priced restaurant. Would particularly recommend for the seafood.

Not only does this restaurant serve fabulous food and wine, but the staff are so welcoming and treat you like old friends or family, but without it being too overbearing. The food that the chef produces is exquisite and the presentation of the menu using a blackboards gives the proprieter the opportunity to describe the food in detail. Fine dining... More

My granddaughter (20 months) was made to feel welcome too! Good range of cocktails in addition to the lovely food on offer. Book early and ask for the centre... More

Great restaurant where the owner explains all the available dishes. Lovely view of the harbour. I was happy we didn't take my son as menu was a bit fussy for him. I had the seared tuna with noodles which was v tasty and my husband had the beef tagliatta

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.
