We enjoy heading out to the Westpunt side for a beach day, and always go on a Friday, just so we can stop for a late lunch at Sol Food and a visit with Sunshine and David, along with one of their excellent pizzas...love the little bowls of extra garlic, Parmesan, and red peppers...and a brownie dessert. Such a friendly... More

Looking over the bay gave a great view of the location. Easy to reach after snorkelling with the turtles (assuming you have a car). Cool breeze! The proprietors are happy to share information and offer suggestions if you ask - they are very friendly. Visited by locals and tourists alike - with what looked like a number of repeat customers...

Great homey atmosphere. Feels like you're having dinner in your backyard. David & Sunshine are extremely friendly and the food is fantastic. Lionfish is a must have and you need to order days in advance. Pizza is excellent as well.

We heard about this place, and we went to see what's it like. We know the owner, she is such a happy soul, that is what makes it so special and there is great food too

Very creative to open a small restaurant right in the backyard of a house on a wooden deck. The staff was very friendly, I had some local boys taking care of us during our visit. We had a Burger and Pizza; the burger was ok but the pizza was really good! NOTE: if you go with a couple 1 pizza... More

The food is great. No matter what I have had, it's been great. The pizza is my favorite. Best on the Island. Don't leave without partaking of the one of their brownies. Awesome stuff. Sunshine is awesome. Sunshine and her husband take pride in providing great customer service and laughs. A must if visiting Curacao.

Sunshine is the name of the lady who runs this establishment. She is so welcoming, and her fish dishes are fabulous (others have commented on her pizzas, which are a must!). When we first visited, she gave my family a comprehensive printout of all of the things to do, restaurants, scuba diving spots, amenities etc. - this became out go-to... More

Not a lot to add that hasn't been said in other reviews. This is a great place for families and the owner (a New England transplant) is very friendly and will sit down with you and talk about the island. Plus she as said before she hands out her own write-up that was very helpful. This was the only restaurant... More

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.
