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.

I've had pizza all over the US, but ended up finding the absolute best pizza in Hopkins, Belize!! The crust was neither thick or super thin but it had the perfect crunch and the toppings were incredible! I only wish they carried out to Arkansas!

We had a pizza each (I had the BBQ Chicken which was great and my partner just had a Margarita) and both were absolutely yummy! We didn't get chance to see the drumming but we heard great things. But we did enjoy a lazy night by the beautiful beach. Just to note, it's quite a walk from the centre of... More

We went on a Tuesday night when they have live music: amazing authentic experience, we danced and enjoyed ourselves with local people. The pizzas were very good too and not very expensive.

The Driftwood Beach Bar and Pizza Shack was definitively the highlight of our trip. The owner, Denise and her friendly staff made our trip unforgettable !!! An amazing place to be embraced by the locals....from the bartenders ...especially Wilson and Elmer....Love those guys , to the local entertainers! We made lifelong friends and will definitely return.

Most tourists told us that Driftwood was the best restaurant in Hopkins. The locals, thankfully, set our expectations straight. The location is a bit off the beaten path but there are great views of the water and a beach volleyball court for those who are inclined to play. The service is great, the drinks are average and the food is... More

We had a few separate people staying at our resort recommend this pizza joint to us so we decided that we needed to try it out while we were in town. First of all I will have to say that it is way off the beaten path. You have to drive all the way the the far end of town... More
