3 Kalver – Hearty dining at a farm restaurant

  • Sørvikaveien 2, Dønna
  • +47 41513425
  •  /  km From You
Overview

The farm restaurant called 3 Kalver (Three Calves), situated on the island of Dønna, offers satisfying dining in distinctive surroundings. The menu proudly features dishes based on quality local ingredients.

The restaurant is situated in a refurbished old barn, which lends a warm and rustic ambience to the dining venue. Here you are served dishes made according to local traditions and time-honoured recipes, of prime ingredients from local producers right here on the island of Dønna and from elsewhere in Helgeland. The farm’s own bread is baked in a stone oven out in the yard.

The story behind the restaurant
Despite the restaurant’s name, veal is not on the menu. The 3 Kalver comes from the chef’s childhood memories from his family farm. When the cow Dagros was about to give birth, the then 10-year-old boy Dag was at school – as soon as the bell rang, he ran home to the farm. There, in the barn, he stared in amazement at the sight of Dagros’ three calves. Triplet are extremely rare, happening perhaps once in ten thousand bovine births. And not in Dag’s wildest dreams did he imagine his cow would bear three calves at once.

In the summer of 2010, when he opened his farm restaurant, the name was clear. It had to be “3 Kalver” – but never would there be any veal on the menu!

Accommodation
The farm also offers accommodation. There are three cosy, fully-equipped apartments below the farm restaurant. Each apartment has one bedroom with two beds and is based on self-catering. As a guest, you also have the option of staying in Solfjeldbrygga, which is situated right on the sea. Also fully equipped, it has three bedrooms with a total of six beds. Here you can enjoy your morning coffee on the wharf.

In addition, the farm has eight spots for caravans and campers, with power hookups. There is a facility for emptying your caravan sewage tank. You also have access to a service facility with a well-equipped kitchen for preparing your own meals, a laundry room, showers and toilets.

The farm and its distinctive restaurant are situated at Solfjellsjøen on the island of Dønna, about 10 km north of the Bjørn ferry quay.
