They have a nice location, views and great atmosphere, the food is good. Sometimes when it is too crowded the service gets a lil slow, but if youre chilling with friends tis not that bad. Monkey balls keep em coming but pinas coladas are not good I dont recommend them. At night its pretty nice to watch the lights over the island or admire the sky when theres a lot of stars or full moon while you are eating. It is a cool place to hang out and grab a bite with a few drinks.

Just like other Utila waterfront bars this one is no exception, chilled, nice, friendly stuff, good drinks, and god, cheap.

Nothing more to say.

Try it out.

I had the joy of celebrating my birthday at Driftwood. I'd have to give the nod to Driftwood for the better burger if compared to their nearby establishments. And I'm not one for shots... but shortly after arriving in Utila my new found friends insisted I try "monkey balls". Must say I was not disappointed!

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.
