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 Local Spot

Loved the pizza, service and drummers. Just get there early enough to get a seat for the entertainment.

I had the Hopkins Hawaiian pizza and it was yummy! The best part of the night was teaching my friend how to play Yahtzee! which was at the bar. So fun! Also had a Mango Daquri, a bit strong on the alcohol but yummy none the less.

We were the only people on the place eating and it was good food It's a real cute place that's really casual The pizza was small but delish They had no salad and missed out on some menu items but it's worth eating the pizza I Will go back

we arrived at Driftwood Pizza just as the sun was setting and the tables on the beach were filling up. We were greeted by the friendly staff and served ice cold drinks. We placed our orders and sat back. A very relaxed group of folks...the pizza arrived and it was fantastic! Two of us shared a large pepperoni and jalapeño... More

It was good, but not to the texture and flavour I enjoy back home. And it's way too expensive! But it was a good pizza fix. Worth a try.

Great little place located right on the beach! Tuesday night is a good time to take in local culture with Garfinga drumming. The drinks are generous and the food is tasty.

On the 3rd night we were craving some good pizza, and Driftwood was not disappointing. The night was a bit windy, but the bugs were not active so it made it a nice evening for pizza. This gem is on the beach, the club is small, but is very welcoming, with a full service bar, and the best pizza you... More

Don't bother with a small pizza. You are going to want more. Opt for the Medium or large. The pizza is fresh and hot and the crust is awesome. We totally loved the atmosphere and the food. We ended up outside since the inside was full but it didn't stop us from having a great time. Be sure and give... More

We did not expect to eat pizza in Belize but in fact ate some of our highest ranking pizza. Driftwood has a Garifuna band playing on Thursdays, drinks all around, and hot, fresh pizza from a well-versed kitchen. A great place to immerse in some love for life.
