Review of Lovolds Kafeteria

Lovolds Kafeteria
Ranked #11 of 68 Restaurants in Bodo
Cuisines: Scandinavian
Description: Det hele startet da Johan Løvold åpnet Joh. Løvold på kaia i Bodø i 1938. Johan og kona Ågot innså snart at sultne mager gir dårlige kunder, og 30. august 1939 åpner Løvolds Kafeteria i etasjen over butikken. Kafeteriaen blir snart en fast møteplass for både de fastboende og de som kommer reisende sjøveien. Vertskapet høster mye anerkjennelse for sine retter av lam, laks, sei og torsk, samt bakevarer fra eget bakeri. I 1951 får kafeteriaen Bodøs aller første kakedisk. Det er mange sultne mager i byen og kafeteriaen serverer hundrevis av middager hver dag. I dag serveres det stort sett 350 til 400 middager per dag – og på en feittirsdag går det lett 550 porsjoner saltkjøtt. I 2018 blir kafeteriaen pusset opp og fredagstaco kommer på menyen. Historien til Løvolds Kafeteria er lang og fremtiden er spennende, og en ting er sikkert, Løvolds Kafeteria skal servere hjemmelaget mat i porsjoner man blir mett av.

If you want a real taste of Norway, visit Løvold's. It's an old fashioned cafeteria style eatery, full of locals, with standard Norwegian fare. Peeled boiled potatoes, fish, lamb. It's not fancy dining, it's where hungry workers go at the end of the day or for a weekend outing.

This is the place for the hungry guest who want to have a traditional Norwegian dinner. Good quality food in big portions. And at a reasonable price. If your lucky you will find a table where you can enjoy a view over the harbor and the islands in North.

This is a local cafe/restaurant that have existed forever. You get Norwegian staple-food, and in graceful portions. It's homemade food away from home. Most locals use this place. It's from a past generation.

Fantastic local food. Price to value - unbelievable. Had a middag there. It was bliss. Interior kind of reminds kantina. Nothing special. But food.. You come here to ear, and food is first class.

Before arriving Bodo from Hurtigruten cruise, we found this restaurant from one of the TripAdvisor review. It took less than 10 minutes walk from the Harbor. This is a cafeteria type of restaurant, everything is precooked. The lady at the counter was very patient and helpful. Speaks pretty good English. I ordered meatloaf with split peas on the side. The drink and desert are all included as one meal. They also have some local food but we didn't try it.
