Buffet at its best

Good variety, tasty but not cheap. I guess being a buffet they have to cover all you can eat people, but, most of us just have a normal meal.

I was staying in the hotel and had dinner here on my first night. The staff were great - I arrived an hour earlier than I had booked for and they still got me a table straight away. The selection of food was huge. They've got everything from seafood to curries to roasts to soups to antipastos and great dessert!... More

A visit with our grandchildren, they enjoyed themselves, lots of jellies,chips & snow freeze with chocolate toppings, BUT for the grandparents, I was so disappointed in many of the dishes. The Roast Beef was dripping blood, and the grilled pork chops were hard as! Other dishes were fair to mediocre. On the plus side, (if you love seafood) the selection... More

Marbles Buffet Restaurant is my all-time favourite! Their food is excellent and tasty each time, and well prepared. My children took me there for my birthday and I enjoyed it very much. The staff is very friendly and helpful. There is just one thing that might not be so positive - your over-full tummy will drag you down for a... More

Fantastic buffet, one of the best I have had, so much flavour. Yum. Seafood selection awesome. If you came out of the restaurant still hungry then you only have yourself to blame.

Went out for a birthday on a friday night. You would expect the place to be humming but it was dead. Very few people there and we were seated away from anyone which felt really strange. The food was typical of what they usually have there with asian, indian and european options. However none of it was very warm which... More

Hi Bronwyn, Thanks for joining us for your birthday function, and for your feedback. I'm pleased you thought the service was top notch, and liked the members of our team, but am disappointed you didn't pass on your concern about food temperature on the night so our chefs could have addressed it at the time. Let me know (or our... More
