“Best pizza in Jaco!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 8, 2013 via mobile

The only pizzeria in Jaco that offers real Italian sausage as a topping. Awesome food and great atmosphere. Nicest restaurant in Jaco, hands down! A must for any visit to Jaco Beach, Costa Rica!

Thanks John ,, It was Great to meet Your Family & Your Buddy Karl !
We are Happy You enjoyed the pizzas ,, Lorenzo does a great Job with Hand Made Thin Crust and we Only use Premium Ingredients & Toppings -- Our Favorite is the " Italian Sausage" which is Hand Made from a 3rd Generation Family Recipe .. Gringo Style !

We hope to see you all back again soon .
Regards to your Family,

Had a wonderful time in Jaco. Decided to try out the experience at the Driftwood Grill and was worth the time and the money. The food was top notch and the atmosphere was fantastic! Dale and Kimberly were the perfect hosts. Will return every time I am in the area. Thanks for the lovely evening!

“DALE AND KIMBERLY& STAFF GREAT EXPERIENCE”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 25, 2013

Was up from Canada to see the country and Jaco, stopped by the Driftwood Inn and was greeted by warm hospitality and friendly settings. Met some locals from around the area all great. Had lovely supper very elegante , extremely tastey,well portioned fine wine and reasonably priced, good value for the money we spent, good job Lorenzo !!
What was overwhelming by far was the layout, extremely fresh and clean new atmosphere and not over priced. If you are looking for back home cooking , fine hospitality, extra clean setting friendly staff, I would recommend highly and by far is 1 of the best if not the best in costa rica finest bar and grill , excellent , Darrel Kam Edmonton,Alberta canada
