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 shared a pizza with a mix of everything! Plenty of food and very tasty! You receive three bowls with topping: garlic, parmesan, and chiliflakes! A great way to add more spice if you want!

We finished our lunch by sharing a brownie with ice cream, also this pleanty enough to share. Best value for money so far on Curacao.

We have been coming to Curacao for 10 years. This is our favorite place for dinner! We recommend it to everyone traveling to Curacao. Well worth the trip to West Punt. Make sure to are there long before sunset. The place fills up and has an amazing view of the sunset. Sunshine will make you feel very welcome and part of the family. She and David are the chefs/owners. So you know they put their heart and SOL into every meal!

We both shared a pizza with all the toppings. Thanks for the tip to share. With a Polar beer or three, worth the trip. Thanks so much and hopefully the Jeep drives soon!!

We stopped here for dinner on our way back to our condo after we finished diving. The food was great (we had the pizza, fish, and steak). Sunshine was a fantastic hostess and was more then willing to answer our questions about the area and help us find anything we needed. Our son was feeling a little under the weather and she even provided direction to two local doctors in case we ended up needing it! We came back the next two nights to try other things on the menu. Note: They are only open Friday to Sunday and if you intend on eating after 6pm, it's best to make a reservation.

I recently visited Curacao, the trip was a blast, great place to stay, first class diving, and Superb Meals at Sol Food. I went twice to the Restaurant because the food was prepared with the utmost care and the Service to include speaking with Sunshine, one of the owners, was as educational as well as entertaining. I am celiac and found out quickly that the meals I wanted to try were easily converted to gluten free without loss of flavor or uniqueness that comes with eating local cuisine. I have to admit I tried their Pizza, yes they had gluten free pizza just for me and it was goooooood! I love pizza on Vacation, oh by the way their regular Pizza is simply amazing, my fellow travelers had it on our second visit and no pizza was wasted. Please try this local food great company unbelievable and Both David and Sunshine know the island and can give great tips about were to go and see.
