Meal of the day is always a good choice. No fancy dishes just normal everyday Norwegian meals. Newcomer on the menu is the Friday Taco. Prices are affordable and the food is good.

Something of a local institution, Lovolds serves very traditional Norwegian dishes at reasonable prices. Views from the 1st floor over the harbour, very central. Fish a speciality.

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...More

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.

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.
