We were given two for one vouchers for a drink when we left the Gordon River Cruise (think they are owned by the same people). It's not well signposted but we eventually made the trek up the hill and sat outside with a beer and admired the view.

We loved our visit to Strahan - including the Gordon River Cruise and The Ship That Never Was. Our stay at Strahan Village hotel was enhanced by the marvellous buffet dinner provided. With lots of seafood, and dishes unusual for a buffet, it was the best we had in our 12 day tour of we wished we could stay longer.

Well priced buffet breakfast available. Plenty of cereals, juices, hot options, toast, pastries, fruit, spreads, etc to keep you going. Staff were busy but plenty of seating with a view of the harbour. Newspapers to read too.

We went to view 42o in Strahan after having a closer look at what's actually included in the buffet. They have it all! Salmon, mussels, shrimps and even oysters! It was a surprisingly great dinner for a buffet! I usually don't go for buffet and prefer the a la carte restaurant but this one is an exception! If you're starving... More

We can't really describe the meals, haven't had any here. But what we can do is tell everybody to have at least a drink or 2 on the balcony (fine weather) and enjoy the spectacular views. Our tradition for 10 years now, arrive in Strahan, book in and go to View 42 and enjoy a drink :)

A small buffet mainly catering for people staying at this apartment village but quite good. On offer last night was a whole cooked salmon (served cold and you helped yourself to sections of fish), plenty of cold prawns (you have to shell them yourself but they do this on purpose as we all know to cut down on diner consumption...

Had a lovely dinner here although on the pricey side for a family of four - maybe they could still consider a children's meal as an option

I did not know about the restaurant 42degrees when booking and we dined at the buffet on the second night after the Gordon river cruise. My wife loved the unlimited supply of oysters, shrimp and muscles, plus fabulous fresh salads. The full buffet is $55 but you can also get a single plate for $27.50 and load it up for... More

I would not normally "go a" buffet but this was quite nice. A good selection of Asian salads, oysters,prawns and scallops. Good hot food and antipasto. Dessert a bit lacklustre but concentrate on the savory instead
