Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Our family of four stopped in for dinner on an evening when a large (20+) group of young people (sports group?) had just arrived. While we had to wait for a table for a while, the owner of Olverk was very attentive and ensured that we were taken care of - and kindly seated us away from the big group for a more comfortable experience. Pizza was good - beer was very good. Enjoyed seeing all the local brewery stickers from all over the world that have found their way to Olverk. Stop by for a good pizza and beer while you’re doing your Golden Circle tour.

Me and my girlfriend had just trekked up and back down from the Reykjadalur hot pools and were in dire need of a good meal. Thankfully Ölverk was a short drive away. We were greeted warmly and informed that all but one of the beers were brewed in house and powered geothermally. We picked the pilsner which was lovely. Pizza was brilliant. We're very picky on pizza and lots of places claim to make great pizza and often don't. This was great tasting, crispy and light. The vegan Mexican type one was great and they even offered a small discount for not having one of the ingredients in stock. I'd recommended, excellent food. Best pizza we've had ina long time.

My husband and I stopped here for dinner on our way back to Reykjavík after driving the Golden Circle. Pizza came out very quickly and was hot and delicious, beer was refreshing after a long day exploring (even though their IPA was not on tap the day we were there :( ). Staff was friendly and welcoming, definitely a good stop if you are driving out that way

This was a great place to stop for pizza and beer about an hour outside of Reykjavik. The owner are a young husband and wife, they were serving, tending bar, cooking and being social with the guests. Really great experience! More modern than a lot of other places in the area, comfortable, and good prices. Geothermal craft beer, which is also really cool to hear about.

The restaurant was packed (with social distances meaning every second table was transformed to a cactus garden) and no bookings taken, so we joined the queue. This worked fine and we got a table for two. The orders were taken promptly and we enjoyed the pizzas - as ever with an Icelandic twist. Blue cheese, pear and cream cheese for example. No fish or lamb though! The beers were full of flavour and we tried several. Only minus was that it took 3 attempts to get a bottle of water, finally the third waiter managed to get a full bottle and 4 glasses from the fridge without being sidetracked. There were also salads, but I recommend the pizza.

We visited here after a recommendation and ordered for take-out. We ordered 3x pizza, garlic breadsticks, chicken salad and some cans of drink. Our order was taken quickly and we only had to wait approx 5-10 minutes for it all to be freshly made. The food tasted amazing and was very well priced.

We stopped here as a family of 6 while traveling in Iceland, the service was poor very slow but the pizza when it finally came was delicious. We had 6 pizza's one for each person 4 different types and they were all very tasty and filling. We had a cheese and basil, pepperoni, sausage and the works we all shared them and we enjoyed them. There was only 1 server for the room we were in so the service is slow unless they just don't move very quickly in Iceland. One thing we did find out very quickly is they add an 11% fee to each check which we found out was the tip so do not add extra money to your check unless you have an exceptional server or service provided to you and your table. This pizzeria is in a small plaza and there is a mural painted on the wall outside which was a rainforest scene with a monkey on it. The restrooms were very clean which was a plus. It isn't located in a very popular location at least it seemed to be out of the way when we arrived unless we don't know the area very well.

The pizza has as little as no cheese, and there was very little toppings on the 25 USD pizza. What bothered me most about this place is that they charge you 2 USD for chilli flakes, 2 USD for pizza sauce and they charge you for oregano (don't know the price but guess 2 USD) as well, they have no parmesan cheese (they only have fresh one and charge you 3.50 USD for that) Nowhere in Iceland this is like this, spices, pizza sauce and parmesan (not the fresh one though) is always free of charge just like in USA. This is like selling you hot dog and demand extra charge for ketchup and mustard. When I order pizza I put chilli flakes, oregano, parmesan on the pizza and have extra pizza sauce on the side. In this place that is extra 10 USD, which is outrageous. That being said the garlic oil was great, but the pizza had way too little cheese and I was not ready to pay 10 USD extra for toppings you get free of charge in the rest of Iceland and the world.

Hi c-cruiser. Thank you for taking the time to write about your visit to Ölverk which is a full service pizzeria / brewery / brewpub. From what I read I think some of what you experienced was a mistake. It is true that we charge guests when they order extra portions of our fresh toppings: like for an extra bowl of our homemade pizzas-sauce, freshly cut vegetable or cheese like our parmesan cheese that you mentioned (which is the fresh kind.. not the type that come from a can). The oregano, the dried chilli flakes, salt, pepper, our home-made garlic and chilli oils are for free for guests at Ölverk. So if you were charged for some of those item, then that is a mistake and can easily be fixed if you would be so kind to contact us via email olverk@olverk.is with date and time of your visit.

This restaurant was easy to find with parking outside. Our greeting was warm and friendly, although there were only a couple of people dining so it felt a bit empty, but it was quite early on a snowy weekday evening. The decor is very trendy and the menu has a few interesting pizza flavours. I had chicken bacon and cheese and my husband had a hot one. The dough was really well cooked, light but not over crispy and very tasty. We didnt have starter or desert as the pizzas were filling enough. Reasonably priced as well.

We appreciated very much the friendly staff and the owner who invited us to try all the different own brewed beers at the bar. We then finally ordered tree delicious pizzas with a thin crispy dough and delicious toppings, you can basically order your own and choose among the different toppings. Really great experience in beautiful Island!

Loved this restaurant in this fun Geothermal town. We always sat at the bar the 2 times there as we could visit and talk about the great beers we were going to try. The owner Laufey chose some great beer for our first flight of 4 beers. The beer is brewed using geothermal energy. We really enjoyed the Pizza we got that was light fresh and a special taste that is hard to find we felt. Everyone was so kind and nice to help with food choices and share info about the area. Don't miss it.

The pizza was fantastic! Honestly we had a lot of great food in Iceland and this was my #1 pick. The staff were so kind and as more of a liquor drinker and not really a beer drinker, I absolutely loved their beer. The flavor I had was a bit fruity and it totally hit the spot. I highly recommend this place!

Over two weeks in Iceland and this was the best meal! Opted for the pizza with hot sauce, black pepper cheese, pepperoni, sauce, cheese and bacon. It was super spicy and great! The appetizer of bread with cheese dip was a nice addition. The menu has a lot of options and this place appears to be very popular with about a 45 minutes wait for a table. Very crowded but worth the wait. Would return here in a second next time in Iceland. The environment was fun and the staff was friendly and helpful. No complaints at all!

Poor service. They missed a pizza we ordered and the server never checked in with us the whole time to see things were going, did we want another drink, did we need anything else, etc. Beer was below average for a micro-brewery…very little flavor.

A great spot for dinner after the Lava Tunnel Tour. The restaurant is only 12 minutes from the Lava Tunnel. The staff was wonderful and the wood fired pizza was incredible. I shared a salad/pizza with my husband and both were delicious. They offer a smaller pizza for kids along with a juice box and a popsicle. The place has tables in a back room, a front room with lovely windows that are populated with beautiful cacti all along the window sill. There are also plenty of picnic tables outside if you prefer to dine al fresco.
