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.

The food, hospitality, and view are all absolutely amazing! We ate there several times, and we were not disappointed once. I read an earlier review that stated that they have had better frozen pizza...I would love to know what type of frozen pizza they get, because I would surely buy it! The pizza was simply amazing! Not greasy at all,... More

We feel very fortunate staying on the west side of Curacao because we are very close to the best restaurants on the island. Sol is 1 of them. The food is very dynamic and the scenery is just as good. From salads to pizza and the fresh seafood it is no wonder why this place is highly recommended. Dave and... More

Sol Food was recommended to us by friends. It was a bit off the beaten path and a little difficult to find at first. However, we arrived to a wonderful host that was able to accommodate us without reservations (reservations highly recommended for larger parties or peak travel times as there are only a few tables available). Sunshine was super... More

This is a family run restaurant, with a small but really delicious selection of food. Available only between Friday - Sunday. Make reservations before hand, as the place is small. All in all, this is a great place that I certainly will come back for more the next time I'm out there.

One of my favorite restaurants on the island. There is nothing fancy about sol food. Just good simple service great food and a fantastic view hidden in the tree tops. A perfect end to an afternoon spent at any of the beaches on the west side. Sunshine and David run a fantastic kitchen. Food is simple but delicious. Pizza, hotdog,... More

We had my birthday lunch @ Solfood. It is a cute place under the trees, where you feel you are @ Bandabou. The food was really good, but we missed that they did not have any local dish. If you eat @ Bandabou, it's a local dish you want. People were friendly and the service was good.

Sol Food had come recommended, so my wife and I stopped there while driving around the western side of the island. We ordered the pizza and it was very good. Sunshine, one of the owners, stopped by our table and we had a nice chat. She is very warm and friendly. It was a little harder to find than I... More
