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.

Good pizza , good vibes

Pizza was good!!!! Took a little while, but that seems to be the case anywhere in Hopkins. Good vibes with local drummers and band on Tuesday evenings! Definitely a place to try!!

The last night my husband and I were in town he was craving pizza. I not usually a big fan of pizza but I thought it would be a nice change of pace.

Great location right on the beach and close to the drumming center. We really enjoyed drumming night and listening to the local talent. The food was also wonderful. When you're eating anywhere in Belize however just be prepared to wait. Everything is made to order and takes a while. Worth the wait.

We were in Hopkins last week for 4 nights during our spring break. Our children are 7 and 11. We went to Driftwood on Tuesday night for dinner (closed on Wednesday). It is truly a shack on the beach. We grabbed a picnic table and our kids had fun joining in a beach volleyball game with others. It took over... More

We ate here with some other travellers we met. As far as Pizza goes it was not the best I've had but a very good pizza. The setting on the beach is really nice. I would happily come here again.

This little shack on the beach serves up the best pizza I've ever had. Smoky barbecued chicken and the thinnest, crispiest crust won my heart (and my stomach). Sitting at picnic tables on the beach to eat (and later moving into hammocks as the sun set), was perfect for our second day in Hopkins. Highly recommend!

We ordered a bacon and blue cheese with sundried tomatoes. It was delicious, and the dough had fresh herbs in it! Very friendly, clean facilities and a great spot on the beach with plenty of seating, hammocks and a volleyball court. They even have a spot you can take a fresh water shower after a dip in the ocean ($1... More
