We got pizza to go 2 times. It was delicious. Lots of fresh veggies. Nice location on a cliff looking down on little fishing bays. David and Sunshine are friendly and accommodating.

What a great place to eat with an awesome view out over the ocean and looking back at the volcanic (extinct) mountains. The owner Sunshine really knows her stuff, you can ask her most any question about the island and she'll know the answer.

We were a group of six arriving New Years Eve. Host and owner Curacao Sunshine was wonderful, warm and welcoming. We were well-taken care of and the food and atmosphere was very good. Thoroughly enjoyed our dinner. Thanks Sunshine for a wonderful dinner.

This is a lovely spot overlooking the ocean. The owner is friendly and full of stories and advice about what to do in the area. We ate there twice, one a regular dinner and one time take out pizza. Unfortunately the food is mediocre at best and similarly priced to other restaurants with better food and larger portions

First, you really have to meet Sunshine, the owner, who knows so much about what to see, where to go, and practical stuff like the nearest minimart, that she's committed it to a handout that she gives to first-time visitors. A one-person tourist bureau. But we went for the food. The restaurant is only open on Fridays, Saturdays and Sunday,... More

Noticed your TA name and wished we had known. Recently the Warp Trio (from NYC) was on island with a few performances and clinics. Curacao has a National Youth Orchestra and a saint of a man who teaches the violin to inner city children. Thanks for visiting and enjoying the island! More

Great restaurant, which was so good that we had to go back again during our vacation. Awesome food, service and a great view of the harbor. Very vegetarian friendly items on the menu. Must haves are the pizza and the brownie with ice cream (totally worth the cheat day while on vacay and after a day of diving). This place... More

You must go here just to meet Sunshine. She has a wealth of information and is very willing to share. Make sure you get a copy of her notes ....they are great...recommendations for everything from beaches to hiking to other restaurants. Oh, the food was good too! The second time we went we shared a salad, a pizza, and a... More

reservations are highly recommended here since they are only open on Friday Saturday and Sunday so they do book up. But they do have a counter in the front near the kitchen area that is super easy to hop in and have one of their delicious dishes or their awesome pizza pies. I make this a must hit spot when...

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.
