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.

Best Sunset Pizza

Very grateful to get the best table at the right hour right before sunset. Good pizza and salad is fresh. Portion is not big, so a couple may order two pizzas if hungry. Since other tables may only have partial or no view of sunset, come early or book ahead!

This small casual restaurant offers some nice alternative food options and a great view of the ocean. While reservations are recommended, we were able to "sneak in" twice without reservations. The personable owners only employ local young men and women, so you know spending your money here directly impacts the people in this remote town. We recommend this place.

Hidden diamond this easy going place. Simple menu but very tasteful dishes handled with care. Maybe the most friendly staff on the island.

The best Pizza and Lionfish dinner on the island. From the scenic overlook, to the friendly staff, this restaurant has the best home cooking in Westpunt, possibly the entire island. Only open on Friday - Sunday ... don't miss this hidden gem.

We went here after a boat dive. The food was fabulous. There service was great with such friendly people. We were given a wealth of information about Curacao. This restaurant is only open Friday, Saturday and Sunday. You eat outdoors on a covered patio. Definitely worth a visit!

Went there last week on a recommendation from the DIVE BUS and it was awesome. We had all the pizzas, cold beer and Sangria and finished with brownies. For eight people it was only 16 dollars each. Too bad i was the diver because they sure drank a lot lol

We have been to Sol food 2 times now on our 3 weeks on the island so far, and both times we have had the pizza and we ordered enough for leftovers the next day. The pizza is great and i love how the bring out minced garlic, red pepper flakes, and parmesan cheese to sprinkle on the pizza. Sunshine... More
