We've been to Marbles when visiting New Plymouth in the past and it doesn't fail. The service is friendly and attentive and an excellent range of food. The salads are delicious, also plenty of seafood, meats, pastas etc and the only downside is trying to leave enough room for the excellent dessert range. Would be a fantastic place for hungry...

We recently visited Marbles to celebrate our son's birthday and we had a fantastic time. The food was of a very high standard and has greatly improved since our last visit to Marbles three years ago. There is a wide range of food, which means that everyone is sure to find something that they like. What was really good as... More

We were staying at the hotel and so decides to have dinner at Marbles. There was an amazing range of food and enough gimmicks to keep the kids amused. Food was hot and tasty. Dessert was varied and of high quality. Very busy on Saturday night, was glad we had booked for the 7:30 sitting. Kids LOVED it.

Three of us ate here at the end of a very busy day. Just what we wanted - a reasonably priced evening meal with a good choice of food. Large dining area, felt a bit impersonal, but the staff were friendly and the food was tasty. Would go again.

We were a company of 3. A good value all-you-eat dining. Wide selection of salad, cold/hot food, seafood, meat and desert. Waitress not so familiar with drinks available and had to return for a change. Since we were there just to gorge ourselves this shortcoming didn't bother us too much.

Dined at the Devon Hotel, Marbles Restaurant. We were welcomed and seated. The food was well presented and chefs were constantly making food plentiful. A vast array of various foods including seafood and of course the hot meats and Chinese dishes. Well worth the money. Very pleasant dining.

Family of 8, great food selection and atmosphere. Wait staff was friendly and helpful. Tables cleared quickly and efficiently. Food was really great and topped up regularly. The deserts are to die for. Overall a good eating experience and highly recommend this eatery when in New Plymouth.

Visited with family from out of town on a Saturday night. Young wait staff seemed very disinterested, in fact I didn't see any smiles from staff all night. The only exception was the lady taking my money at the end of the night. Our waitress, while pleasant, was not familiar with the wine selection on offer and returned to the... More

Hi, I'd appreciate if you can email me directly. Marbles Buffet offers a huge selection of treats, but not fillet steaks. Never the less, our buffet is located at The Devon Hotel in New Plymouth.
