We were around Westpunt for 5 days and Sol was simply the best. Food was good and Sunshine (the lady of the house) was really one of the kindest people we have met.

Ordered the pizza and a special order of rice with veggies. Both very good. The pièce de résistance was the brownie sundae. Wowza. Fortunately we were within walking distance of Sol Food and went back the following day just for the brownie sundae. We had the mint brownie both days, albeit there are other brownie choices. Nice views of Playa... More

We stopped at Sol for lunch and had the best Caesar Salad and the pizza. I was so happy when I sat down and saw the menu and there was pizza and salad on it. Both were Excellent! I also had the Sangria which was pretty darn good. We liked it so much that we made reservations for dinner there... More

We were told this was a good place for a meal on curacao. We did not have a good experience at all. The place was kind of busy but not any where near full. The grilled steak was fine but the red snapper fillet with mango salsa did not taste right. My wife was hungry and ate it anyways noting... More

Sorry we did not live up to your expectations. Our son died unexpectedly last month. David stayed on island while I went back to be with friends and family. A few kind hearted and compassionate guests, worked with David in my absence. I had to delay returning to Bogota for a follow up medical procedure until this past week while... More

It took us 3 trips to the Island to be in WestPunt at the right time to be able to eat at Sol Food. We went as often as possible; because the food, atmosphere, service, and staff are the best we have found anywhere on the island. This restaurant is only open on the weekends. Whether you order pizza, steak,... More

Sunshine, Sol Food's co-owner and hostess, brings a wonderful spirit to this gem of a restaurant in Westpunt. She made it feel as if we were long-ago friends she'd invited for dinner. It's heartwarming to see her motherly affection for the waitstaff whom she's worked with for years. All of this hospitality and warmth is reflected in the food her... 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.
