This place was a lot of fun in such a small village. When other things closed, this place was still pumping out the music and drinks! They make the best brick oven pizza!! Pizza is my favorite, so trust me I know pizza!! I drank the local Belizean Beer just to experience part of their tradition. It was a great... More

We went on Tuesday night when the local musicians/drummers were there. Great place great food. Pizzas and tacos were both very original. We grabbed a seat outside and enjoyed a beautiful night on the beach.

We never imagined we would have amazing pizza in Belize, but we did! We met the owner a couple of times and she is so so nice! She also owns a burger place called Logger Heads, which is also amazing. Driftwood will deliver to your hotel, so that's what we did on 2 separate nights. We had the Hopkins special... More

The pizza here is no joke! They know how to make a tasty pizza anyway you slice it! We ventured here for lunch one day and were very pleasantly surprised at how good it was. The owner is very friendly and also owns a burger place in town called Laugerheads. You can also get pizza delivered to you at your... More

It is at the north end of Hopkins, so it can be a bit of a walk, but the owner was nice. It was super relaxing hanging out on the beach or playing yard games while you wait for you food. We tried several different things and they were all delicious; however, my favorite was the Hopkins Hawaiian pizza with... More

Fun atmosphere, good pizza! We were skeptical about going off the resort property to eat but it was recommended by other travelers we spoke with and it was good pizza!

Located at the north end of the village and tricky to find (as anything else in Belize), but worth it Thin crust, fresh toppings about $15us per pizza Well worth finding

Ok so the reviews are right on point! Awesome little spot with amazing pizza and ice cold beer right on the beach complete with local children playing soccer. The owner/chef was very nice and a pleasure to converse with. The pizza is fantastic! The restaurant is at the northern end of town but very much worth the bike ride or... More

It was a little bit of a walk (15 minutes) from where we were staying but well worth it. We got one of their vegetarian pizzas and we loved it. It was simple but quite flavorful. Plus, the experience of eating pizza on a picnic table on the beach was just fun.

Unexpectedly good pizza, great, friendly service, and beautiful view. Our waitress was nice enough to tell us where the hot spots in Hopkins will be tonight and this weekend.
