Over the years that we have been visiting Utila, Driftwood has become our favourite restaurant. Excellent fish, meat carrying the USDA certification, friendly staff and a lively atmosphere on its partially-outdoors eating area. It's at the top end of Utilian prices. Expect to pay 2 or 3 times the typical Lps100 for a diver's meal. So we found the change... More

A bit on the pricey side, but big portions. English and Spanish speaking. Nice dock to relax on. Better than average food for Utila

The first time I went into Driftwood my experience was good but not great- I ordered BBQ chicken that was served to me off the grill but still cold in the middle.

Great burgers, fish tacos. On the water. After a morning of diving it is a great place to get lunch and sit on the dock.

I had lunch here twice and supper twice. All meals were very good and reasonably priced. I had to be talked into the grilled pork chop - after all, it is an island and fish is king. The pork chop was massive, perfectly grilled, one of the best meals i had duting my two months on the island.

Always a favorite. The food and service have been consistently good over the years I've lived here. Am enjoying some of the new menu items added this past year; baked macaroni and cheese, the various new sauces available for dipping, and most especially, the cheesecake desserts.

Loved this place. Really friendly bartender and bar owner. Food was good. Right on the water. Played American country music and had good drink deals.
