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.

What to say about David and Sunshine? They are friendly, aim to please, always smiling and made us feel welcome everytime we came to visit. The food is excellent! David makes the best lion fish and I had the pleasure of ordering it fresh out of the ocean! Even the view is breathtaking! We never hesitate to choose Sol Food... More

Sunshine is a delight and the food is great! We were traveling from New York and were craving pizza, and it was delicious. Great atmosphere, best to make a reservation as it is a small property and tends to get very busy! Would absolutely return.

Liked this little place! Wonderful staff--very nice and friendly. We got the pizza and it takes a Long time since one comes out at a time. Or maybe we're just used to New York turnaround time lol....if our kids were litttle, they'd have been pitching a fit for food so bring snacks for the little ones if they are hungry.... More

Thanks for being so understanding. Our pizza girl from the last 6 years is off island for a couple of months. The boys have done a great job stepping up to the plate, so to speak. We hope you and the girls enjoyed our little corner of the world. PS, If the kids were far younger, we have blocks and... More

This is the perfect place to go at the end of the island. The owners are so welcoming and you can tell they love what they are doing. They treat the young men and women that work with them with such kindness. The place is small and nothing fancy. It is a place to go and just sit back and... More

Had the tuna and my wife had the beef. Both were very good and Sunshine provided great insight into the surrounding area. Will be back before we leave.

Everyone was raving about the pan fried Lionfish. It was great, as was the homemade brownies and ice cream for dessert. Sunshine is a delight.

For the most friendly service and freshest food, this is it!! My husband had the tuna and I had the snapper. Both were perfect! Sweet potatoes and black beans was the best- so fresh! And you must finish it with ice cream on a homemade brownie with homemade chocolate sauce.
