I only ate here once in two months, but it was a great meal. It definitely ranked as one of my favourite meals on the island. The menu was huge, in particular the side orders menu. There was something for everyone. I found it a little more expensive than most dinners on the island. The location is definitely more convenient... More

The Driftwood Café is adjacent to Hotel Margaritaville, so very convenient for me to spend afternoon and have dinner. The Café is owned/managed/operated by Sharon who originally from Texas and Jill originally from Canada. They have USDA meats, fresh fish and homemade items among other treats. The open café has dock for boats to tie up. Reasonably priced for quality... More

It was a nice place to grab a bite to eat. The food was fantastic, but the margaritas and service left a bit to be desired. All in all I would go back though, the conversation with the owner, and overall atmosphere was fun.

We stumbled across this place our first day there. My boyfriend is from texas so was thrilled there were texans on the island. Beautiful dock location! Great food and cocktails :) Adorable yellow lab. Great place to relax and hang out after a day of diving.

The fried pickles were the best I've ever had. Great seating right on the ocean. The menu had a good variety, but we just ate appetizers.

This is a great bar with delicious food...especially the pork chop and mash, gave me a bit of home comfort after all the rice! The servings are huge and very tasty. The management is wonderful and always friendly and great service. The monkey balls are the best shots on the island and definitely worth a try. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend... More

owners are super nice, but the prices are higher than other places on the islands. Food is very good, but we would have ordered more drinks if we didnt have to find our waitress each time - no worries - we would definitely go back

They have a nice location, views and great atmosphere, the food is good. Sometimes when it is too crowded the service gets a lil slow, but if youre chilling with friends tis not that bad. Monkey balls keep em coming but pinas coladas are not good I dont recommend them. At night its pretty nice to watch the lights over... More

Just like other Utila waterfront bars this one is no exception, chilled, nice, friendly stuff, good drinks, and god, cheap. Nothing more to say. Try it out.
