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.

Crazy good pizza

We ate here on a Tuesday, which was an awesome experience. All the locals come to perform/watch live music. The Hawaiian pizza with pepperoni added was the group favorite. We ordered 5 large pizzas here and all were delicious.

Simply put...the best pizza in Hopkins. I know what you are thinking....pizza....on a vacation. You can get that anywhere. But, there is something about eating it on the beach. And it is good pizza.

This beachfront bar offers the perfect island view. Situated near the end of the road to the north, it offers the only pizza in town. Service is friendly, liquor prices competitive. Locals and tourists alike gather in and out of season. Bar stools and picnic tables are outside for beach seating. Inside offers tables.

This place was one of the highlights of a 3 week driving trip around Belize. We were advised by the front desk at Jungle Jeannie's to check out the Driftwood and have to thank Johnelle for that. The Garifuna band rocked the place all night and the bar and kitchen were up to the same standard.

I can't say too much about the party's they are having. (should be good). We've been there for eating. The 8" pizza is definitely not more than a snack. But cost more than a full dinner somewhere else. The 14" pizza is up to 49B$!!! Absolutely mad. The seaview is great but the pizza itself was maximum average.

Dear Guest, In our beautiful country of Belize it is easy to believe that the cost of things are low when you travel down our roads full of potholes and virtually no street lights. We are a developing country with a first world taxing mentality. We are also a nation of rice and beans as a staple. Any foods that... More

A little difficult to find in the dark but when you arrive, wow! Apparently Tuesday is the big night here with live drumming and dancing. We were here on a Friday night and it was totally dead! I was shocked because this place is literally in the sand on the beach with palapas, picnic tables, hammocks and a cute outdoor... More

Pizza was good, nothing extraordinary nothing I saw on the menu that was uniquely local. But it was good pizza being enjoying in an amazing location. Were able to walk along the beach from our rental to get there and servers were friendly and efficient. You can watch the kitchen work from the indoor seating which we enjoyed, or sit... More

We stopped in on a windy night, so maybe not as many people there as usual, but the pizza tasted great! Fun place. Would go again.
