Given we arrived on Sunday and were only staying in Westpunt until Thursday, we wanted to make sure we took in Sol Food while we were local as we had heard great things on TA. Food was great and good value for our money. Service was a little spotty at times, not sure if they were just too busy that... More

We had a burger with salad and the ham n cheese pizza. The pizza was too big for one person. Both dishes were delicious! Free endless ice cooled water. Super nice people! And a great view.

Sol Food is off the beaten path but worth the drive to the quiet side of the island. One of the owners Sunshine is very nice and helpful. And both owners are excellent cooks.

The food was good. We heard the Pizza is the BEST but did not try it. Everyone around us was so it probably is. If you go to Curacao though, go here first. Sunshine has put together a "Must Do" for the island that she gives to every customer. If we had went there first we might have planned our... More

We enjoyed a wonderful dinner. We were not sure after seen 3 $ signs on trip advisor. However it was not pricy at all and the food was really good. We recommend the lion fish ( not on the menu but Dave, the owner, sometimes goes diving and gets some). The pizza is also excellent. We also had the sangria,... More

We wanted to eat at the highly recommended restaurant yesterday evening, so we made a online reservation and were looking forward to a nice dinner. Also we checked the website, but everything seemed to be okay. But we were hardly disappointed although we made the reservation there was a private wedding and the only thing we heard from the owner... More

We are sorry to have disappointed you and hope you were able to enjoy BandaBou and a nice dinner at one of the other fine restaurants in the area. For others looking to book a table online: We are a very small operation. The staff includes David, myself, a couple of local women, and a handful of boys who live... More

If you are renting a car in Curacao this is one of the places you must have visited. The food, the staff, the view; all perfect. We had the best fish and caesar salad on the island here, together with the home made Ice Tea is this a perfect place for a nice refreshing lunch. It is quite a drive,... More

In Westpunt you'll find the Sol Food restaurant. We had a table on the terrace with a very nice view to the waterside. The service (young men from the neighbourhood) was very plesant and attentive. We had chicken breast and pizza which tast good. The way they cook at the Solution Food is American style. But very tasty. All in... More

We stopped by for lunch on a Sunday with no reservation and were seated quickly. It was quiet when we arrived but filled up soon thereafter. Seems like reservations are recommended. First of all, the setting is awesome on an outdoor patio overlooking the water. It feels like you're in a tree house. We got the pizza and brownie sundae... More

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.
