Dining options: Dinner
Description: 900 Grillhus is a restaurant for the whole family with the menu ranging from pizzas and hot dogs to steaks and lobsters. We are renowned in Iceland for our famous lobster burger, which has 140 gr of beef and 100 gr of local lobster, and our various lobster and fish cuisine. Opened for business June 5th 2010, 900 Grillhus is a family owned business that started as Topppizzur in 2006, and is still sometimes reffered to as Topppizzur by the locals due to the popularity of the pizzas.  So be sure to stop by at 900 Grillhus in the heart of town Vestmannaeyjar. Surrounded by hotels, hostels, stores and a bank and a bar just around the corner (though we do serve a decent selection of alcoholic beverages), there's hardly a more convenient place to dine than 900 Grillhus. Looking forward to seeing you, Owners and staff of 900 Grillhus.

We had just travel by bus and ferry with nothing more then a candy bar in our stomachs and we were famished when we sat down at this modern black and white pizza parlor! The menu was extensive and we choose the lobster soup which rivaled anything I have ever had in New England (my home) and was superbly cooked! If you are in Heimaey you must try this! Well done 900 Grillhus!

While waiting for the ferry to Vestamannaeyjar, Iceland one is surrounded by a handful of tourists and a handful of locals. Upon entering the Vestmannaeyjar or the Westman Islands - specifically Heimay Island - the relative desolation of Iceland becomes ever more apparent. This is a small town on a small island off the coast of a small country with a population that would be considered an endangered species by the WWF.

Despite the desolation, small population, and relatively remote nature of their existence one can still find an amazing meal. 900 Grillhus/ToppPizzur is one such venue where just when you think you're on the edge of civilization and the expectation of pizza and pylsur (icelandic hotdogs) dominates your mind, you are pleasantly surprised with an outstanding menu and foreigner style service in a modern setting.

1. Cleanliness: Superclean
2. Menu Variety: Superb- from Margerita Pizza to Whole Lobster to Lobster Hamburgers
3. Food Quality: Excellent
4. Service: Least english spoken during our entire stay in Iceland. You become spoiled in Iceland with the ubiquitious and near perfect english of its residents. You do get the vibe that you are a tourist and are not supposed to be there- the restaurant was at 50% capacity but we were told that since we didn't have a reservation were had to sit outside...."tourist tactic" was definitely sensed but tolerated
5. Viking beer. Icelanders are not known for their beer for good reason. Iceland beer, while potentially quite pure, is considerably lacking in flavor and body
6. Atmosphere: Modern nordic design, patio
7. Popular local hangout

If you happen to find yourself in the Westman Islands and would like to enjoy a great meal, this is the place to go. It may very well be the only place open!
