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... More

Visited here with my spouse and my parents. They have good quality Norwegian and international food, and they serve in portions that will leave you well fed. The location is pretty sweet as you might get a seating with a view of the entry to the Harbour. A great place for nothing fancy, and a pleasant staff to complement it... More

You will find no tie and suit here. This is the place for jeans and overalls. This cafeteria has décor from 60ths and has been a solid anchor point for fishermen on city trip. Practical as well since it has fishing tackle shop on the ground floor. The cafeteria serves northern Norwegian home cooking in hearty portions. Nobody leaves Løvolds... More

I got what i expected, good traditionally home cooking, with rather large portions. You do not go here if you want a gourmet experience, but rather if you want a taste of good traditional Norwegian cooking.

First of all, it's Norway. I can't not mention a basic lunch which I will show in my photo was extremely expensive. I won't discuss cost. Just enjoy the meal and the atmosphere and eating with locals. Norway is expensive. This isn't an indictment against the restaurant. It's simply; Norway. Is. Expensive. Enough said. The restaurant was on the 2nd... More

This eatery closes at 6 pm. But while it is open the food is good and the plates are well filled up. Cakes are OK too. This cafeteria fills up between 11:00 and 12:30. After that you can choose a table with a harbour view.

I really enjoy coming to Løvolds Kafeteria, because they have really good service, and really tasty homemade meals. You get big portions for a fair price. This kafeteria has a special place in the hearts of the people of Bodø as its been there for years. It is always busy, and a popular place. Recommended if you want to have... More

I actually love this place. My father i from the north of Norway, so in my younger days in the summer holidays, we went there. The food is no frills food. It is cheap (by norwegian standard)the portions are large. What is interesting, is that you sometimes feel like a celebrity, since people tend to stare at new commers. Do... More
