Unique food, friendly staff, comfortable setting. Came back a few times while on vacation. Extra themes during special calendar days made for a great evening out.

Good pizza with a great view. Both the basic and specialty pizzas were tasty. Only complaint was that the to-go salad was already dressed and soggy when we got home a few minutes later. But the pizza hit the spot.

Good pizza but better atmosphere. Local Guarafina drummers are there on Thursday, recommended to get the local flare. Rosie was our waitress and she was quite pleasant. Overall fun place.

Driftwood is a pretty popular place in town. The pizza is very good and worth trying. The only downside is that it is way too expensive. For those visiting Belize, expect to pay much more for a pizza here than at a great pizzeria in...More

We had been out exploring Hopkins and decided to drop in for a quick lunch. Really a laid back place with really, really good pizza. I would also highly recommend the lobster tacos.

Those of us that live here know the place to be on Tuesday night is Driftwood. We arrive about six to get a table and enjoy some delicious pizza and wings, then we are ready for the live music at 7ish and some nice cocktails....More

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.
