We ended up at Driftwood on a Sunday night with a group of friends we met at our hotel. Not only were our feet in the sand at the picnic table, but we were treated to quite possible the best conch fritters ever! We didn't expect the pizza to be anything spectacular, but it was super delicious too! We had... More

The views on this northside spot are amazing. Sitting on the beach under a palapa eating handmade pizza - wonderful! Crust was handmade and handtossed, sauce was also done in house and delicious. The Hopkins Hawaiian was worth it - Hawaiian pizza with coconut, yum!

If you like really good pizza and local drumming entertainment then definitely visit the Driftwood. It is a short ride from many resort's and rental homes. Drive your golfcart or walk it, is right on the beach. Mingle with the locals, they are very friendly and knowledgeable.

Great pizza, friendly staff, casual beach atmosphere with a volleyball net! Sat outside at night, very enjoyable. Tourists and locals. Perfect place to spend an afternoon drinking beer, eating pizza and playing volleyball!

We went for dinner on Tuesday when they have the local drummers playing. Pizza- Solid pan pizza (like Chicago style, but thinner.) We had a medium Mediterranean and the kids split a medium pepperoni. Two pizzas and drinks were 100 Belize (50 USD.) A couple of reviews mentioned the price. It isn't Little Caesar's... The price jump between sizes wasn't... More

The lobster tacos were wonderful and a great value. The pizza was also very good but very pricey - about 50% higher than in the states - but suggest you buy it anyway. There could be good reason such as the cost of getting good ingredients in Belize. The staff is very friendly and attentive - a very cool place... More

The pizza was amazing, beers were cold, beach was beautiful, but the people are what make this place a rare gem. Our family spent 2 weeks in Belize (kids 12 & 14), and were excited to explore diverse dining options. We ended up eating at Driftwoods 3 different nights, and by far these were our favorite meals....
