This is a very nice seafood buffet. The food was fresh and delicious. As a bonus there is a nice sunset to end your evening.

The views and venue were fantastic. The wait staff very friendly and the food on offer was great. Plenty of different options hot and cold and suitable for people with allergies.

We popped in here one night while staying at Strahan Village. Our initial intention was to order a takeaway pizza, but when we saw the views and outdoor area we decided to eat there. We shared a pizza and a bowl of hot chips which...was way more than enough for the two of us! We were sorry we only tried this place on our last night as we would have quite happily eaten here both nights!More

Nice location but very limited menu. Pizza or snacks no proper restaurant I’m assuming due to COVID. Owned by RACT/NRMA as are several other eating establishments in Strahan. The Pizzas were average but the view was great.

We spent 2 nights at Strahan Village and fortunately our accommodation was in the same building as this restaurant and we did not have to walk up the stairs from the esplanade for dinner each night. As this was the off season, there are not...many venues for dinner in Strahan at this time of the year, so we chose to eat here. The bar menu is limited, but we managed to be satisfied with our selections of the excellent cheeseboard, the reasonable supreme pizzas, buttermilk chicken sliders were ok, but need to choose a different recipe for the crumbly, fall apart buns. With the sit down restaurant closed, everyone has to scramble to find seating in the bar lounge area, may be a few small tall bar tables and stools would help here. The view through the large glass panel windows towards the harbour is the winner. So the view and the cheeseboard and the comfy chairs and the excellent staff on our 2 dinner nights, takes this review from average to good.More

Only had pizza and snacks available. Pizza flavours were very limited. Once we got our food it was all burnt, the pizzas weren't even cut properly and the chicken sliders were also burnt with dry chicken and stale buns. We threw it all in the...bin!More

Dear Cattjohnson, I am sorry to read that you did not enjoy your meals. I have passed on your comments to the Executive Chef to improve these issues.

I heard that the restaurant had excellent meals, and as I was staying at the Strahan Village, decided to try it. The manager said there was a boardwalk to get up to the restaurant when on foot….neglecting to say that there were 100 steps to...negotiate first.I am not a spring chicken…I MAY have been able to get up to the top in daylight, but I would not even contemplate attempting to come down 100 steps in the dark..especially as a friend had a fall when she visited there and broke both ankles. Fortunately, the manager offered to drive me up to the restaurant and came and picked me up after I ate. It would seem to be a better idea if the hotel bought some golf buggies to transport people to the top of the hill. My meal was delicious. The service was great, and the location amazing.More

Excellent views and outdoor area overlooking the bay. Modern comfortable seating and sofas in the bar with tasty pizza and snack options. The huge gas fire was very welcome and cosy on a chilly winter’s night.

This was disappointing. $59 for a seafood buffet seems good value, but, everything tasted bland. The view is excellent, but not enough to make me want to return here.

The view from View 42 is very nice. Looks down onto Strahan and the harbour, terrific at sunset. Excellent service! Nice wine. However, the pizza is not at all good… overdosed in cheese which obliterated everything else.
