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.

We have been to Sol food 2 times now on our 3 weeks on the island so far, and both times we have had the pizza and we ordered enough for leftovers the next day. The pizza is great and i love how the bring out minced garlic, red pepper flakes, and parmesan cheese to sprinkle on the pizza. Sunshine... More

We will sadly be leaving Curacao tomorrow so it was a nice treat to have dinner at Sol Food tonight. As everyone has mentioned, Sunshine's warmth towards all her customers was very welcoming. Service was great. Pizza, salads and sangria were amazing. The island info sheet they gave us will be saved for our next visit to the island.

We come to Curacao every year. This year the Green Bay Packers happened to be in the NFC championship while we were here with our family, 6 adults and 3 kids. I contacted Sunshine ahead of time and she had our own Packer party room all set up! Televisions aren't furnished in our apartments. so this was a huge deal... More

Sunshine welcomed us to her beautiful patio restaurant and we enjoyed chatting with her. Great staff - friendly and quick. Three of us had delicious pizza, our fourth member had the fish which he said was good.

After reading many reviews like I am sure you have I was not disappointed. Sunshine is so kind and friendly. She has a wealth of knowledge and is happy to share it. She gave me a 6 page info sheet and it was more like a story about the island and made for great reading. As for the food I... More

This place is wonderful! Sunshine, the owner, was so great to us! My 3 year old doesn't like to sit still and she pulled blocks out for her and even let us hang out in an enclosed area so she could run around until our food arrived. So nice!! We thank you for that! The food was wonderful and even... More

Food was quite good -- and buy a loaf of the sweet bread. The owner (Sunshine) is pleasant and helpful. We may go back to try the pizza (they were out when we were there!). They are only open on the weekends

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.
