I've been going to Driftwood since before it was Driftwood and it has always been a favorite place of mine. Denise and her staff work extremely hard to provide great food and exceptional service in a wonderful, fun atmosphere. Driftwood offers their creative pizza menu along with some tasty specials. They also have a full bar that serves cold beer... More

Place is small and a bit run down. There can be no one in the place and it still takes forever to get a pizza. Some nights they have entertainment. Usually some locals beating non rhythmically on drums. No talent. Not like the talented blacks in America.

Great little beach bar with a good atmosphere, made up of both tourists and locals enjoying a good time. Although it took a little while to come out, (the place was packed to the rafters) the pizza was excellent! Big sizes, delicious thin crust and good quality ingredients. We had a large pizza with half and half of two of... More

I have to say, Driftwood was the shining star of our stay in Hopkins. The pizza is amazing (even coming from NJ!), service is warm and friendly, atmosphere is great. We visited here during peak dinner times, as well as after hours; both different experiences, both equally enjoyable. If you hear the drums after 9pm, stop in for a cold... More

Nice place, reasonably priced and the pizza was wonderful! I had the Hawaiian. The beer was cold and it's right on the beach. Good music playing and good vibes.

Pizza is pretty rare in Belize, and for this reason, they get away with charging a pretty hefty price. Service however was excellent and the food was really delicious. Their pizza has won awards, and the crust was pretty amazing. The outdoor space looks like it would get hoppin' during on season, but as I was there in low season... More

Only place in hopkins that ever had a "crowd" while we were there. Fun drum music, great pizza, and the owner was super sweet. Some of the performers can be pushy in selling their CDs.... But you never feel unsafe. And- if your lucky, you'll run into locals celebrating a birthday and they will share their casaba root pie!
