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.

Great Pizza and Jam Session

You wouldn't think of having a pizza dinner in Belize, but Driftwood makes a delicious New York style pizza. If you are in Hopkins, especially on a Tuesday night, stop in at Driftwood. There is a local jam session that takes place, featuring Garifuna music.

A bunch of us from the hostel came here for some dinner and to here some local music and had a blast. Staff were friendly although pizzas did take some time to be served. The music was good and there place was packed with friendly locals and tourists alike. Highly recommended,

I was in Belize for the month of January and spent more time at the driftwood than any other place in Belize. The Pizza was the best I have ever had!!!!! The staff and the owner made you feel like family. I recommend that you have an Hawaiian Pizza. Truly a delight. Can't wait to go back and see them!!

Good pizza, nice people. Nothing to write home about, but they do use fresh ingredients. This seems like the place to order pizza from, and they deliver.

We loved that they made the pizza crust fresh, it was full of flavor. The atmosphere was very casual and relaxing.

Tuesday night at Driftwood is music night and some of Belize's best musicians gather to play traditional Garifuna music. We thoroughly enjoyed the great food cooked by Denise and her team, the welcome we received and the great live music. We would strongly recommend this place and the views from the seating area on the beach are breathtaking.

Beautiful beach spot north of "downtown". Great drinks and ice cold beer with Corn Hole and Horse Balls. Take a swim and enjoy tall Driftwood has to offer. The "Fence of Lost Soles" will keep you smiling long after you are gone. Don't miss Loggerheads toward the marina. Same owners, with darts and great burgers!

We went for pizza night. We got two pizzas including The Hopkins Hawaiin with coconut on it. Something to try again soon. The restaurant is right on the beach.

We came here for dinner but ended up only having drinks. They mostly have pizza (hence the name) we wanted something else which is why we left but it is right on the beach and they have a volley ball net as well as some games. The bar tender was really nice and helpful.

I loved the pizza and the eating on the beach with beautiful moon light. The drinks prepared by the bartender are very creative as well.
