A TASTE OF THE MEDITERRANEAN
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. More a sanctuary off the main road running through English Harbour, you enter through a beautiful tropical garden and find yourself on a gorgeous waterside gallery with stunning views of Falmouth Harbour.
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 SunRa were the inspiration for the simple, contemporary style of the restaurant. Not just jazz but music and art culture are what is important to Mirko.
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.
The 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 and 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. WI-fi is also available for those who want a working dinner.
Betty’s signature effervescent hospitality is probably the loveliest thing about the restaurant. Welcoming everybody with a huge smile, you have the feeling you are being welcomed into Betty and Mirko’s own home. This restaurant is one of those perfect little finds you will keep coming back to.
Open for Dinner, Monday - Saturday @ 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm
