Description: Sol Food is a small casual place where we (David and Sunshine) serve lunch and dinner on our deck. We live downstairs and have a 3 bedroom vacation rental upstairs, Sunshine Getaway. Westpunt is at the far west end of the island and is quite small. Our home is on the Weg Naar Playa Kalki about a half mile before you get to the Lodge Kura Hulanda. To find us, take the road across from Jaanchie's restaurant and a left between the cemetery and ball field. If you any trouble finding us, ask anyone where we live.We are a part of our community and the island. David has a mountain bike club for the boys in town, the Westpunt Riders Boys Mountain Bike Club and I am involved with the American Women's Club and a few other organizations around Curacao. We do not have the luxury of American wholesalers or grocery stores and I shop every Thursday with fingers crossed that I'll be able to find all that we need for Sol Food. We are open Friday, Saturday and Sunday noon to 9PM, reservations are recommended. There are only 9 tables and it is hard to accommodate any group larger than 8 guests. The Lodge has a banquet room. Besides the Lodge and Jaanchies, you can eat at Misje or Rancho Sobrino here in town. Our menu is simple; pizza, salads and/or tuna, shrimp, tilapia, snapper, steak, chicken, hot dogs or hamburgers from the grill.We hire the boys from the bike club and a couple of local women. We are not a high end restaurant nor do we wish to be one. Many of the boys have worked for us 3 or 4 years and returning guests have been able to see how they have progressed not only in life but with their language and social skills. We find that those who chose to stay in Westpunt are laid back and casual, most of them are snorkelers, divers or mountain bikers. Many have become friends and we all enjoy seeing each other when they return.If you are staying in Westpunt or Lagun, Sol Food is a great place to meet with old or new friends and have something to eat. But really folks, it's just simple American food. If you are staying in Santa Barbara, Jan Theil or Jan Sofat, it is over an hour drive one way. We highly recommend that you do take the drive to see the beaches and National Parks. If you have time, come by for lunch or an early dinner and drive back during the daylight. We are 45 minutes from Lions Dive, Sunscape and the Royal Sea Aquarium and 35 minutes from the Renaissance, Hilton and Marriott. There is such a variety of great places to eat all over Curacao. We hope you enjoy your stay.

beautiful location for sunset as well as bird watching in the trees. This intimate and relaxed outdoor setting is a must see! We enjoyed the best lion fish on the island, amazing spinach pancakes & the ultimate homemade desert! Something you must leave room for!

We had a wonderful lunch while on a day tour. The lionfish was fantastic and Sunshine's special corn cakes defy description. Informal with a great view and relaxing atmosphere.

Came here for two meals while I was in Curacao. The food was great and far better than what the hotel (Kura Hulanda) was offering. Staff is very friendly and knowledgeable of the area. Also, there are brilliant views of the bay especially during sunset. And this restaurant is walking distance from Go West Divers and Kura Hulanda.

We went there twice, once for dinner and once for lunch. Our boys loved the pizzas, and we loved the rest! Sunshine is truly a sunshine, the place is amazing and the food is very good. Loved everything about it! Thanks for these good times!

someone told us that this is the place to find the best brownies and pizzas in curaçao. And boy was he right! Wonderful service, an amazing view, and so down to earth that it could be heaven. It's a bit of a drive and for some hard to find, I am sure, but it's all worth it. We had a... More

Sunshine, the owner, is a Curacao treasure! We were there twice, it was so good! Everything is fresh and home made. If you like it, ask Sunshine and she will tell you how to make it at home. The brownie with ice cream is one of their signature desserts, and is a must have!

I was completely remiss in not writing this review sooner. We visited Sol Food on our honeymoon in June. What a lovely experience. The view is fantastic and the food is splendid, but it is Sunshine and her staff that really make this place a gem. She is so incredibly friendly. She even surprised us at the end of the... More

I had a burger, greens salad. No biggie but it was real and fresh cooked the way I asked. My wife had the shrimp and rice. The same. All was good including the wonderful conversation with the owner. A person with a catering background and obviously a passion to please her customers. The brownie vanilla ice cream desert was great.... More
