Every time we visit New Plymouth, we also ensure we visit this restaurant. We really love the food, a great variety to suit all taste buds. I always try a bit of everything, and then end up with a full stomach, but that always happen with buffet restaurants. This time, the beef was tender, the sweet and sour spicy chicken... More

Had a surprise birthday for my friend there on Saturday night and it was a awesome evening. The food has improved 100% and the variety of dishes has increased. I would highly recommend anyone of any age going there - there is something for everyone. Kids love it.

We were staying in The Devon Hotel for a relaxing weekend. We had nothing planned, and decided to try the buffet while having a drink (and people watching <including a few sports stars we recognised>) in the lounge bar. We were not disappointed, and returned to Marbles for our second night too - loved it! Each night had lots of... More

A good value buffet for the price with a wide variety of dishes catering for all ages and palates. The quality and flavour of the dishes did vary but overall it was a pleasant dining experience without being exciting. It was very busy on a Sunday night with a number of birthdays which added to the atmosphere and meant there... More

We were staying in the hotel, and dined in Marbles. We absolutely loved it! The restaurant was buzzing with happy and contented customers, and enthusiastic and smiling staff. Even if you are not staying at The Devon Hotel, check out Marbles. You will not be disappointed.
