“Food is a central activity of mankind and one of the single most significant trademarks of a culture.”
Mark Kurlansky

Food in Belize – and particularly in Hopkins – is the biggest thing that brings us together not only as a culture, but also as a community as a whole. Lauded as the friendliest village in Belize, we in Hopkins look forward to meeting and impressing visitors to the village with a variety of culinary delights – both local and international! As much as we would love to have you every night for dinner, it’s part of our mission to help you experience everything our village, which is why we encourage you to venture off the beaten culinary path. We’ve put together a list of our favorite restaurants in Hopkins that are sure to please your taste buds and fulfill your foodie wanderlust!

The Rhum Shack

Hopkins Bay’s Rhum Shack Restaurant offers complimentary breakfast for their guests. This is one perfect way to start the morning before heading off on your day’s adventures. Or if you plan on spending the day onsite the lunch options offer a variety of local and international choices. Dinner is no exception! You might see no need to leave the property at all, but if you do, they’ve got plenty of suggestions!

Driftwood Beach Bar & Pizza Shack

Craving something casual? Just next door to Hopkins Bay you can find the best pizza or hot wings in Belize! There’s always some excitement stirring up over at Driftwood and you might just find yourself swaying to the beat of the local drums as they turn up the heat on any ordinary night.

Barracuda Bar and Grill

You’re on the beach – why not go all out and grab some seafood? Open daily for breakfast, lunch and dinner, Barracuda offers full gourmet meals and family style meal plans for budget-minded groups and large families. It’s one of our favorites!


Chef Rob’s Love on the Rocks

The name, Love on the Rocks, is derived from their unique cooking style. The fresh local ingredients are cooked on a 700 degree lava slabs right at your table! The aroma is absolutely unbelievable and the restaurant offers a full menu plus a very well stocked bar.


Innies Restaurant

Of course, no stay in Hopkins is complete without a stop at one of the most popular local eateries in the village – Innnies! Come here for a spot of local Garifuna cuisine with a ton of flavor. Get a taste of traditional hudutu fish soup and a side of mashed plantains, all washed down with a cold beer!
