One of the best places to go on the westpunt. Simple food made with love. The best thing is when you'll leave Miss sunshine will give you her guide to the island.

I made a reservation at Sol Food based on many TA reviews. We enjoyed the lovely view and ambiance of the place and the service was good. The food was mediocre. My husband and I both ordered fish - his was snapper and mine tuna. Both fish were previously frozen and bland. Side dishes were rice (also tasteless) and a... More

We've eaten here several times. There is a lovely water view, perfect for watching sunsets or having an afgternoon drink. The food is consistently excellent. Also try the brownie/ice cream sunday - a decadent concoction!!!! The best part of Sol Food is Sunshine, one of the owners, who lives up to her name - Sunshine is cheerful, pleasant, and makes...

The food and the menu were in the four star area, but the service was not. Slow and mistakes made with the order. I think they were short on staff the night we visited. The pizza was good and the ice cream sundae was very nice.

When we sat down, we were given the menu and a full pitcher of cold water! What a treat. We ordered a sausage pizza and were told we could add other toppings at no charge, and the choices were read to us. What a surprise! We added mushrooms and artichokes. it was the best pizza we have had so far... More

We went last year and was on our list as a must to return. Everything was just as delicious as the previous visit. Fresh local fish and vegetables. Friendly staff and owners. A true treat.

Had lunch here today after climbing Christoffelberg. We shared a pizza (was OK, hardly any toppings) and shared a peanutbutter brownie with icecream (really good). Sizes are US style so plenty of food for us this way What made it a "meh" experience is the hostess Sunshine. We were tired and ready to go so I walked up front to... More

Being out at the Westpunt end of Curaçao puts one almost in the middle of nowhere when it comes to commercial development. This is not a bad thing. Restaurants are limited but that doesn't mean they are in necessarily in any way poor. Sol Food is not a "soul food"restaurant. It is only open on weekends. Located in more or... More

Great food and friendly staff. It's a perfect location for watching sunset after a day of diving. We came here twice and ordered the ribeye both times because it is to die for. The susage pizza was also great. Highly recommend this place but make sure you make reservation to secure a table with a view. They only open Friday... 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.
