We booked a table at the restaurant (always busy so book in advance) and arrived just as the sun was going down giving a tremendous sunset. A few drinks at the well stocked bar which stocks the Hellyer range of Tasmanian whiskeys -a beautiful drop! The buffet comprising of mostly locally caught seafood (Tasmanian salmon on the bone, salmon steaks,... More

We had beautiful seafood as we looked over Macquarie Harbour from these spectacular elevated views. Service was great with food of the highest quality.

We usually avoid buffet type dining, but as the weather was too inclement to wander the streets, decided to try View 42o, So pleased we did, the meal was beautiful and plentiful, with a great selection of both hot and cold dishes to enjoy in a beautiful location. Staff were very efficient without being intrusive, which made for a very... More

Not a huge fan of buffet dining, but this was good. Might have been better if I had been a bit hungrier (stuffed myself at lunch on the cruise). Highlights were, prawns, oysters, calamari, and delicious trout. The waitperson we had most contact with was delightful (from Canada), Mark and I are not huge meal/over eaters, so $$$ are not...

This was a fantastic feast and great value. Smorgasbords are not my favourite but this one was full of tasty dishes and a good selection. Staff were excellent and it was a busy night.

We stayed at onsite accommodation for a couple of nights and chose to visit 42 on our first night. The waiter was polite and friendly, explained the Buffet well to us, including the specials for the day. As Buffets go, this one seemed good, I am not a huge fan but was drawn to the promise of fresh seafood and... More

A magnificent feast. Amazing smorgasbord of many different types of food. All expertly presented. A fantastic experience, the food never ends! Highly recommend, and worth every cent.

A delight to dine in this spacious, comfortably furnished dining room. We were welcomed, a group of six retirees, with genuine greetings by professional staff. The style is smorgasbord. So many places with this style dining have poor quality food however were pleasantly surprised. The selection of hot, cold and 'on ice' dishes was amazing. Lots of seafood as it... More

We were in town on a very busy night, the population had expanded by several hundred. The restaurant was doing two dinner sittings and we booked at 5:30. We soon realised that 1 1/2 hours to enjoy dinner is not long enough so next time I would book the 7:30 sitting and enjoy a drink in the lounge first. The... More

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.
