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.

Beautiful beach, amazing staff and the mango drinks are so good!

We loved the Driftwood Drum night. We took a cab from the village into the Driftwood at about 8 at night. Our cab driver "Mac" was very helpful.

Ask anyone in Hopkins what they're doing on a Tuesday night and they'll tell you that, of course, they'll be at Driftwood for drum night. Drum night is an incredible mix of fun social interaction and cultural history, conveyed by the informative MC for the various musicians who perform traditional Garifuna drumming each week. Locals jump in and out of... More

The pizza was delivered pretty quickly even though we were expecting it to be on Island Time! We ordered the pineapple pepperonni and while it was tasty there wasn't anything that was super unique or special about it.

Right on the beach lots of local ambience. Food is really yummy! Wish it was closer to me I would go more often. It's a must if you visit Hopkins. They have theme nights that make it fun!

Located on the beach by a volleyball court. Delicious pizza selection. They do a Hawaiian with shredded coconut and honey on the crust which my friends like. Their marinara sauce is def much better than their white sauce tho. They also offer calzones, and for lunch fish tacos, fish and chips, etc. Haven't tried those but I'll be back in... More

We have made it a tradition to have pizza in every country we visit. The Jaguar Reef Lodge recommended Driftwood. They delivered right to our suite and boy was it good! Highly recommend ordering from Driftwood!

This place was fantastic. The pizza was excellent. It was a little different than what we are used to, but I guarantee you will love it! We also brought them some fresh caught fish and they cooked it on the BBQ for us and it was delicious. The owner and her BF were very friendly, as was the rest of... More
