“Excellent food and service!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 7, 2013

Not only is the food excellent but the service is great. Very friendly!
The meat lovers pizza is a must try-delicious! The salad are fresh, and they make great mixed drinks. The restaurant is very clean. It's a little away from the remainder of the restaurants which we enjoyed as it was a quieter than "the strip" area. This was one of our favorite places- highly recommended:)

“What a nice surprise...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 6, 2013 via mobile

Saw the reviews on trip advisor and decided to give this place a try. The pizza and ceasar salad were delicious. The owner was on site and lived in Texas for many years, so we all had lots to talk about. One thing we enjoyed the most was the high-end finishes and the cleanliness. This should be a must for dinner if you are in Jaco.

“A "Jewel" in Jaco”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013

I live in Jaco and the Driftwood is a welcomed change of venue. The service is impeccable and that is saying something for Jaco. My first visit was on my birthday in August, nothing planned, just strolled in with friends to check out the new place in town. It was all about personal service the moment you walk in. If it is not on the menu, just name it, they accommodate. The food, drinks, service, conversation were outstanding!! A little bird must have whispered B'Day as the Owner Dale sent one of his staff out to buy me a cake....did I say a very special place? We are all regulars now and the place is booming. Great Food...Great Service.....Great Times:)
