Live band, Pizza got great reviews by all the travellers, but didn't try it for myself. I recommend the Rum in coconut water or Rum punch

I highly recommend Driftwood on Tuesday night when they feature entertainment by local drummers & singers - it enhances the whole experience. The pizza at Driftwood is awesome, and as in the rest of the area, the Belikin beer is cold & cheap!! Be sure to get there early or you'll never get a seat...

While in Hopkins we spent Many Days on the Beach at the Driftwood. Denise the owner is Genuine and Accommodating and Truly Represents the Vibe in Hopkins. A Must is Tuesday Night with Local Garifuna Drumming.

I don't know what is in it but the spices mixed in with the crust are wonderful and we have never had such a "perfect" thin and crispy crust ANYWHERE !!

We checked out Driftwood because of the great reviews we'd read on-line before coming to Belize. We were not disappointed. Fantastic pizza! Everyone's favorite was the BBQ Chicken pizza. We also ordered a garlic chicken and one that, I believe, was called the combo. Driftwood was small on the inside but cozy and fun. The service was great too. Our... More

The setting for this restaurant is right out of a Corona Beer commercial. Right on the beach with pristine sand and beautiful palm trees. The food is great. I had the pizza and my wife had the fish and chips. Both were exceptional. Highly recommended

Was in Hopkins, Belize for the first time on March break 2014. Ate several meals at Driftwood Beach Bar. Everything was excellent. Great fish dishes and the greatest pizza I ever enjoyed. I recommend this out of the way place to everyone who find themselves in Hopkins. Your loss if you bypass it. Will definitely go back for the pizza.

Kept going back, Denise has a great staff and the best pizza. Her parties and specials are the best too. Have a drink by the ocean and meet some great locals and expats.

Stayed in Belize for a week and ate at the Driftwood every day, sometimes for both lunch and dinner!! Loved the fish tacos, fish and chips and the BBQ chicken pizza as well as the Hawaiian pizza. I'm the owner, Denise's, aunt, but my review isn't based on our relationship. The food is truly fantastic. Loved the location and the... More
