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.

“OMG fantastic food, super service and the owner Sunshine is a gem”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 9, 2014

It will take you a little to find this place, but it is soooooooo worth it. We went at the tween time (abt 1500) cause we had heard you need reservations sometimes for dinner. Our table was at the corner of the deck with a fantastic view of beach and sea. I ordered the burger and chips and my wife ordered the burger and spinach pasta. We both ask for medium rare. Let's just say you can't get any closer to perfect then how they prepared them. Absolutely fantastic. The spinach and pasta salad was seasoned to perfection. Service from start to finish was without flaw. At the end of the meal we had a wonderful chat with the owner Sunshine who is a gracious and wonderful host. If you're in Curaçao or planning a vist this is a must eat. It's the best meal we have had on the island

“Sold on Sol Food in West Punt, Curacao”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 31, 2014

Sol Food is slightly off the beaten path but so worth the effort to locate. Owner Sunshine serves imaginative, delicious meals and desserts. We ordered the veggie pizza and red snapper. Two different meals, both delicious. The veggie pizza came with a side of peppers, grated garlic and grated cheese. Unlike American pizza, there's is no attempt to "cheese" you to death or have most of the pizza be baked dough. The combination of green peppers, onions, mushrooms, tomatoes and black olives was perfect. The red snapper came in a mango chutney with a side of asparagus and potatoes pancakes. The fish was excellent, the asparagus just right and the potato pancakes,mashed and cooked with chive, were the winner. That was until we had a homemade brownie for desert. You have the choice of mint, peanut butter, plain or nut. Also, home made and from the culinary mind of Sunshine. Go out of your way to find and eat st Sol Food. Locations is near Jaanchie's restaurant, behind the cemetery in West Punt. Two entrees, dessert and tip ran $41.00 American. The menu also has less expensive fare like hamburgers, salads and hot dogs. We ate big and had plenty to bring back to our place for dinner....including some of the brownie!
