A good buffet selection, with food that is well above average. The price at $56 (I think) was reasonable. Drinks were also reasonably priced (a 15oz beer $6.80), Service was efficient and friendly - the staff really seemed to care.

Had a great Buffet meal, the food was so delicious and they had a big variety. The view was magnificent and we had a stunning sunset from this location. The staff were friendly and accommodating. Bookings essential in peak times and can be very busy with large groups.

Absolutely fabulous food and wonderful view! Huge selection on the buffet. I think know my favorites were the fresh seafood and the seafood salad. The staff were friendly and attentive.

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.

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.
