Description: Sol Food is a small casual place where we (David and Sunshine) serve lunch...
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 the pizza and it was excellent. We will be sure to visit Sol Food again before we leave. Be sure to make a reservation, they are that busy.

This restaurant had very good, friendly service and nice atmosphere to the place in general. The service, however, was a bit slow even by the island standards. Unfortunately, I wasn't impressed by the food there. It wasn't bad by any means, but nothing to write about.

The atmosphere is true Carribean style, the beach is close so you can see it while you eat and the food is amazing. The service isn't particularly quick, but the food is worth waiting for! The chocolate-mint brownies are particularly good but everything is of a very high standard. The staff were friendly and helpful, giving us some advice about... More

Be sure to visit this gem in westpunt. Great food inviting terrace eating. Owned by an American couple who couldn't be more welcoming! Come first chance you get & ask for information about the island. Sunshine the owner will give you invaluable info for the rest of your stay. We had pizza & sangria delicious.

We ate there twice and had Lionfish ( first time ever !). and pizza. It was BEYOND fabulous. Don't be in a rush. Service is slow and relaxed..it's island time, remember. Only a few tables , but easy to get in early for dinner or a little later for lunch. Only open 3 days a week.

David and Sunshine have a great little place in Westpunt - but be warned you need to make reservations as they are only open F/Sat/Sun. But it's worth it! Menu isn't huge but you can find something for everyone. We loved the lionfish and enjoyed seeing it brought in after a scuba dive with GoWest at Playa Kalki. Pizza was... More

The restaurant has a breath taking view, but an over rated interest around it. You need reservations with 1 week upfront because they are open only Fri-Sun, al for a dissapointing menu. I would think that people are not going to Curacao to eat pizza, hot dogs and hamburgers. The plus is the host (owner I guess). She is really... More

Our foursome arrived without reservations. We waited a few minutes for them to put a table together, which was very much appreciated, but had to share a larger table with four other people. I'm not complaining, we knew that reservations were recommended, and the people we sat with were a hoot. Food was good. Two of us had hamburgers -... More

We visited this place based on recommendations from tripadvisor users and we weren't disappointed. The place is nicely located, the views from the terrace very nice and you have iguanas walking very close. The food was fresh and tasty- we found that both Cesar salad and the pizza had a great American cuisine touch to them:) the owner is extremely... More
