Ate here twice. Once during the day and once on Thursday, Jam night. Local musicians, local people and tourist all eating pizza, drinking cold beer and getting along. Good times.

Fun little place in north hopkins-- had some great fish tacos there. You could easily hang out at the beach all day long, ordering grub and beers from the "takeout window" overlooking the sand.

We went to Driftwood on the recommendation of our resort staff and also we met one of the performers in town who told us about it. I am not a pizza person. I eat it maybe once a year. However, I would eat this pizza every week if it were near me. We ordered the veggie pizza with wings. They... More

By far the best tasting pizza ever. Everything is fresh and go on Tuesday night when they have the Gariuna drummers and singing. It is the best. A bit hard to find but right on the beach and a great local atmosphere

We ate here twice and will so miss it now that we are home. We even took leftovers with us and ate it cold. It's at the VERY FAR END of Hopkins village but worth finding it. Cute beach location and they have local drummers on tues night (I think). We bought the specialty pizza's that were more $, but... More

It's all about the setting. Right on the beach. Walk past the fence of lost soles (lost footwear posted on the fence). Ask about the music night when local musicians come in to play.

It's so surprising to find such delicious pizza in a small beachfront setting, but it's here. I recommend the pizza with ham and pineapple. Tasty!

Great food and choice but a little expensive! For a large pizza it was about 52bz and 26bz for a small. It's located right on the beach and your feet are in the sand so a pleasant local place. Certainly worth if you aren't on a budget.

We walked here from our cabana along the gravel road because we heard they had local drumming in addition to good food. We started hearing the drumming of a Garifuna band as we approached. They are on the sand. The pizza was tasty and easily better than most of what we can get back home. It was a family/party atmosphere.... 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.
