Xmas Day Lunch

Enjoyed Xmas day lunch at the Marbles. Pre booking and payment required up front. Great range of food available. Menu was smorgasbord / buffet style. Delicious. Helpful staff good customer service Tip - check if spaces available. You might need top rebook depending on time of year

We often go to Marbles for family birthdays because the variety of food caters for all ages - great seafood for Grandpa, lots of lovely salads for Granny, fish and chips for the children and a good variety of mains for mums and dads. The dessert array is great for us all. Coffee machines make reasonable coffee and the cheese... More

Only 1 type of roast meat, but that was beef which suits most people. Deserts were very yummy and plenty of choice. The staff very efficient. We live in New Plymouth so... More

With 5 of us, variety is the key and Marbles surely delivers that for you. The kids are happy, the restaurant is happy with kids (which is good) and its efficient too - no waiting to be served.
