Even though the little island is full of good restaurants, we fell in love with this place. The food was excellent - the pork chops and the skewers were sensational - but the staff is over-the-top friendly and helpful. We had a great time drinking on the dock, and would stop in this place most days just for a few toddies and to chat up the staff. When I close my eyes and think about Utila, this joint is what I tend to envision.

We make it a point to visit Driftwood once on each trip - it's definitely the best food on the island but it is on the pricier side. I think their creamy garlic sauce could almost make shoe rubber taste good! They are known on the island for the fish stew, which we ordered to split between the four of us in addition to our meals. We all enjoyed it, but if you don't like fishy fish I would skip this one. Personally, I could have eaten that for a meal, but then I would have to miss the garlic sauce. Like most places on Utila, they are on island time - order a drink and enjoy the views over the water if you get there before sunset while waiting for your food.

Lol Monki Balls are the famous shot this bar is known for. We went their several times after diving all day and the laid back atmosphere was welcome. It was so nice to sit out on the pier with a cold drink. Fair warning they do often seem to be working on island time so don't necessarily expect the speediest service. But the staff is charming and very friendly.

This place is right on the water and has great views. My husband and I split one meal and didn't drink anything and spent about $36. I don't think it was worth that much money. Our server was nice, but the cook was late to work so we had to wait over 30 mins for our one meal to arrive. Would go here for the views but can find better food for better price elsewhere.
