“What a spread”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 9, 2013

As far as I am aware the Marbles buffett operates 7 nights per week. What a range of food - everything from asian, seafood, roasts, pasta - you name it. Plenty of dessert options. The dining room was busy every night I was there which is always a good sign. Definitely recommended.

“Funtastic Place for a Birthday bash”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 8, 2013

Had a family members 70th birthday and got the private room at Marbles. What a great family-friendly place to have a birthday! The private room was ideal for our large group; we had plently of room and the kids were able to move around freely without interruping other diners. The staff even sang happy birthday to our birthday girl...
The quality of the food was very good for a buffet-style menu. Plenty of choice (hot & cold) and something for everyone. Ideal for those with a big appetite.
For the price is was very good value.
Well worth a visit.

The buffet at Marbles is very good value for money, the quality and quantity of food was very good. The lamb was amazing! Would highly recommend it.

“EAT ALL YOU WANT AND NORMALLY TOO MUCH”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 24, 2013

I have dined at Marbles many times before, and what surprised me this last time, was they catered for gluten free diners big time. They can dine on as much food as the rest of the patrons with gluten free at every buffet food presentation they had. Normally Pacific Oysters are abundant but this time there was none, but hey, with all the other seafood available, one still dined happily. If staying in New Plymouth, this is a must do. Be careful though that you do not get seated tooclose to any birthday parties as they are well known for ensuring the birthday person gets a real treat with sing and dance.

“Great Buffet”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 22, 2013

The buffet meal at Marbles is outstanding, but perhaps a little overpriced. There is a very wide selection in all areas, especially in the dessert section. The staff were exceptionally friendly and helpful, and it is always clean and tidy. Would definately recommend especially for children as well.
