The chef grilling the meat sure knows what he is doing. My steak came just as I wanted it. Restaurant uses an ordering form that is in both English and Norwegian, just fill-out you order and enjoy. A bit expensive even for Norway I would say but well worth it. Making Reservations might be a good idea. Although, the waiter checked his booking sheet carefully before we got a table, but in the end we were almost the only visitors for a few hours.

We arrived on a Tuesday night in the middle of October to a full restaurant. Fortunately, they had a table still available and we were seated next to a fireplace. We waited a few moments for a server, ordered some beers and then each ordered the fish and chips. It was really good. The prices were a bit more expensive than your normal casual Norwegian restaurant, but I thought the quality of the food and beer was well done.

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.
The restaurant was on the 2nd floor near the marina. The staff was friendly and spoke English well (it's Norway on both accounts!). The restaurant was clean (it's also Norway) and the desserts looked great.
As to our meal. We each ordered the same thing as the fellow in front of us - his tray looked good. Pea soup. Bacon. What Americans call 'Corned Beef' and some pork along with mashed root vegetables. Plus, boiled potatoes and juice.
All very hearty and very traditional.
You will enjoy the restaurant for lunch. Forget the price. Just go.

Bjørk is one of Bodø's biggest restaurants with several departments, centrally located in the Glasshuset.We have a warm and casual atmosphere that is perfect for both everyday as the more important occasions.Our menu is large and varied, suited our lunch, dinner and evening guests. We offer Tapas, Italian pizza baked in our wood-fired oven, salads, pasta, grilled dishes from our Josper grill and desserts.If you have not tried, we strongly recommend our signature dish for several years: grilled dried fish served with petit pois puree, poached eggs, bacon, butter and aioli potatoes.For parties of over 10 people, we have a dedicated room and menu.
A group of Scandinavian and Russian colleagues enjoyed a dinner together at this restaurant inside the glass house in Bodø. I went for a white pizza with local cheese. Very tasteful and plenty of food. Expect to pay around NOK 190. They also offer the local beer both on draft and bottles. Not gourmet, but a good place for a good pizza.

Panorama bar with a fantastic 360˚ view of Bodo and the surrounding district. Lunch bar during the day and one of the city’s popular bars at night.

Upon arrival the waiter didn't seem so interested and we had to wait for both the menu and the food. We ordered 155 NOK dumplings as a starter and received 3(!) dumplings, that also were not fully cooked, being hard on the top. The sushi was average.

It annoys me that Orion is ranked as the #9 in Bodø.
People are completely uncritical when they are rating this restaurant with five stars compared to the competition in Bodø. It's a run of the mill restaurant of the same type that you see everywhere in Norway, same menu, same food.
I'll give it to Orion, it's got decent quality and nice decor, it's a nice place to dine out if you're looking for cheap and quick food. The portions are big and sensibly priced.

We decided to try Roast as it had great view and seemed to have good food. While the view certainly was impressive, the rest was not. First of all, service was bad to say the least. We had to switch table as we were placed by the kitchen and by the bar which made so much noise we barely heard reach other when we spoke loudly. Then it took forever to get the attention of the waiters in order to place orders etc. This was a problem the entire evening. Then, when we finally got the food, the beef was chewy and overcooked, the fish was 20% skin and bone. Dessert was ok at best. At this price range, one would expect so much more, so this was a big disappointment.
If you decide to come here, come for cocktails and the view, but skip dinner.

Smith´s is a typical sportsbar located inside Glasshuset downtown Bodø. The venue is not particularly charming, but good enough for watching a football match or other sport events. Average pub food, and I recommend this place for drinking and sport watching rather than a cozy dinner.
