We had the buffet and I can't rave enough about it. Every dish we had was cooked to perfection. The presentation and cleanliness was second to none. I don't eat red meat, just seafood. But my husband does. This buffet catered to both of us, and we left feeling full and our taste buds were ignited. The dessert bar had... More

The view at view 42 is second to none. The restaurant offered a buffet for $55 per head. The food was beautiful. A variety of fresh Tasmanian seafood as well as a wide range of other hot and cold dishes as well as dessert. The service was fantastic and as was the quality of the food. Highly recommended if you... More

This place is worth it just for the scenery out over Strahan and the bay. The food is ok and overpriced. Dining options are very thin in Strahan. We have tried them all. This is worth a meal. Make sure you get a seat that makes the most of the panorama.

I stayed in the Village Accomodation (seperate review) we enjoyed the Buffett Dinner for 2 that also caters for non seafood eaters such as myself. Dinner was excellent for both my wife and I, the Staff are also friendly and welcoming. The Buffet Breakfast is a let down though, especially the so called cooked breakfast, nothing was warm and the... More

Buffet evening meal at a good price, if you are a seafood lover, you can wipe out the cost of the meal with local oysters and mussels. The follow up assortment of dishes is quite extensive and there is something to cater for all tastes. There are also desserts and condiments as well.

Came for dinner and was disappointed that it finished by 9pm. No view at night but should be stunning at lunchtime. Staff gave us a discount as they only offered a smorgasbord and it was nearly finished when we arrived at 8.30pm. No a la carte available and the staff had to clear the tables around us. We did know... More

The view is the best part. Food is good. If you are a seafood lover the buffet would be well worth your visit. Not so much if you are not a seafood lover. Nice venue, staff quite good. No wow factor except for the view.
