The location is incredible. Literally on the besch front.
The service was poor though, the waiters were all over the place.
I was so shocked when told that I'd have to pay for tap water!!!???

Besides that, the food was good.

How refreshing to have a waitress who was very honest about the menu and what she felt would suit our taste, she steered us away from what we was going to order and we trusted her judgement and we wasn't disappointed, a very BIG well done to Janelle you are a credit to the restaurant.
I would highly recommend this restaurant

The busy little place is situated on the beach where parents can relax in the shade while the kids play on the beach. Food is good and best calamari around

Have been here six times in last 3 months. The location is great, right on the beach, stunning views, but that's about it.

The service is slow, or sometimes non-existent. The waiters seem to prefer socialising amongst themselves than taking orders or checking on their tables.

It takes forever to order and receive your drinks, whether its a coke or a cocktail. Quality of food is quite good, but stay away from steaks, they just can't seem to get it right. They could also improve on cleanliness.

After six visits, still trying to decide if the view makes up for everything else...

We were on our way to Pearly's and decided to go to Driftwoods insteed. We were not sorry!!!!! What an absolutely fantastic down to earth experience. From the moment we walked in the front door, a feeling of holiday and relaxing became me. The food was fantastic and the overall experience was excellent. I would definately recommend DRIFTWOODS for a laid back, relaxing experience. Well done guys on a job well done!!!
