The food is very good and beautifully presented. The waiting staff are polite, friendly and very efficient. The setting is lovely, very relaxing. The only downside was the time the maitre 'd took to explain the menu. It's a nice gesture, but in our case, it was overkill as we had already decided what we wanted. Maybe only offer to... More

Great place with a view on Falmouth Bay marina to enjoy while dining at SUN RA. Menu is only made with freshly made dishes and fresh products, so you want to try more than one ! Even the desserts are more than tempting, with an innovative Italian flair. An overall fine dinner we enjoyed with the family, during a pleasant... More

My friend and I stopped by Sun Ra and were met by Cesare (spell?). He took our advance dinner reservations. When I asked if it was possible for the chef to create something vegan, he said that the chef is vegan! Imagine my happiness! He even brought Chef Vicenzo out to meet us! We arrived for our reservation early intending... More

We visited Sun Ra on the recommendation of our B&B owner (Valentina, Blue Bay Inn, Seatons) just for drinks as we'd planned a night visiting the bars of English Harbour. Whilst enjoying cocktails the whole area succumbed to a power out so we were plunged into candlelight which the staff very quickly added to making the bar and restaurant twinkle.... More

We were warmly welcomed by the owners and shown to a delightful table at the water's edge. The menu, which was all written on a large board was brought over and each item carefully explained. It was a very varied & comprehensive menu and the wine list complemented it well, at a reasonable cost.The service was excellent, especially from the... More

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.
