Just opened about 6 months ago - serves pizza and pasta, has a bar, sits on the beach with some volleyball and games at times, cute decor and great owners - expats from Canada. Really good pizza, nice break from the local food if you need it.

We ordered a bacon and blue cheese with sundried tomatoes. It was delicious, and the dough had fresh herbs in it! Very friendly, clean facilities and a great spot on the beach with plenty of seating, hammocks and a volleyball court. They even have a spot you can take a fresh water shower after a dip in the ocean ($1... More

Have eaten at Driftwood numerous times on my multiple trips to Hopkins. Love the atmosphere, the staff and the food. My favourites are the hawaiian pizza, the bbq chicken pizza and the fish tacos!! Driftwood is right on the nicest beach in Hopkins!!! Tuesday evenings are my favourite time to go because of the local Garifuna drumming but anytime is... More

It was good pizza for sure, but it did take a long time to get it and we were the only ones there, I like the tables on the beach. But I found a hair in my pizza. So maybe the two ladies need hairnets. Just a suggestion.

We are happy to hear that you did enjoy your pizza although you did not necessarily enjoy your experience with us. As for the wait time; nothing that comes out of our kitchen is precooked. Everything is 'cooked to order' to ensure quality..our pizzas are hand rolled and assembled by our very experienced and dedicated cooks. Normally the wait time... More

A wonderful funa and casual way to enjoy pizza right on the beach. You can eat your pizza in a hammock if you want!! Full bar, friendly staff and the pizza tasted great- many special varieties to choose from.

Every Tuesday night they have local musicians play. People from the resorts and the town come together to dance, eat and drink. Good pizza! However, go early as seating is limited.

They do have very good pizza indeed, if a bit overpriced for Belize. It's out of the way, right on the beach, but walking there alone at night didn't make for a comfortable experience. Most importantly, the famous tuesday night drumming jam was not what I expected: it was not local at all, but made for tourists (I've heard a... More

Every visit I make to Hopkins, I have to eat at Driftwood multiple times. The pizza is rockin', but so are may of the other dishes. Grab a pizza on the go, but come in and sit down for a delish meal.
