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 had a delicious meal of Lionfish with stuffed zucchini and our children ate fantastic pizzas! The ambiance is beautiful with a stunning sunset and a meal above a forest. Our waiters were sweet and Sunshine very welcoming and friendly. I love how David and Sunshine make a difference in their community!

Sunshine and her "boys" are friendly and attentive. We so enjoyed our two dinners at Sol Food. We had a vegetarian who enjoyed the pizza tremendously. One night we had a side dish of sweet potatoe and black bean that was delicious. The shrimp caesar salad was also great. The only improvement would be the consistent use of local fish.... More

We go back yearly and eat at Sol food 2-4 times. The best is Sunshine and her wonderful warm welcoming persona. The food is very good and reasonable. Great homemade bread - different every day. I recommend getting the fish that is fresh caught - especially the lion fish. The veges are always good - I prefer them over the... More

Can't beat the attention to detail and great service this place offers. Food is great, especially the pizza, but the real plus is Sunshine's knowledge of the island and willingness to share that knowledge. We ate here twice and enjoyed both meals immensely. The mosquitoes can be thick if the wind lays, so take some bug spray. Highly recommended. Make... More

Maybe hard to find but worth the effort. We ate twice at Sol Food and both nights were awesome. Great setting on cliff in Westpunt. We had seafood one night and pizza the next. Both nights were great price was fair and people are very nice.

4th trip to Curacao, we love David and Sunshine. Sol Food has the best pizza and dessert you will ever eat. Reservations are your best bet of getting in. They are open Fri-Sun only. Do not miss this place!
