Location and contact

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.

Nice restaurant, relax atmosphere, fresh Italian food made with passion. Good selection of wine. Friendly service. If there is small minor I personally would change something about the lighting less bright but that is personal, for sure will come back to the restaurant

Of our 4 nights in Antigua, this was by far my favorite fine dining meal. I was surprised that when I had mentioned the restaurant to a few others, they had not heard of it, and I would like that to change! The location is...More

This is a great place for a romantic dinner . It’s right on the water and serves authentic Italian food off a small menu. Good atmosphere, very welcoming.

I have had a really good experience here sometimes, but local chefs come and go all the time and results may vary. For that reason I can't give it a really great rating. You're better off at a place where the chef is part of...More

From the outside, this place looks a little shabby - however, once inside and seated at a waterfront table, the magic begins to happen. Good quality food - although mostly fish/seafood. A small restaurant run by Italians - very attentive service from pleasant waitstaff. Highly...More

We visited this restaurant last night and thoroughly enjoyed the food and the ambiance. I had the pasta and my wife had coconut shrimp appetizer and fries as her meal. This is a must visit. Highly recommended.

No dress code. But since it’s one of the nicer places, if you like to dress up a bit, go for it.
