They could improve the buffet by having less dishes and keeping them full. No cut roast meats or ham when we went up, and no one to ask. Very busy night with lots of kids

Thanks for joining us, and for your feedback. Yes, we offer a huge selection of dishes that are continually replenished with freshly cooked treats. The roast our chefs are carving change each night, as do many of the dishes in all sections of our buffet. We hope to see you back soon. Many thanks and regards, Peter Tennent More

We went to the Marbles Buffet for dinner last night and were very impressed both with the fresh new decor and the range of lovely fresh food. Anyone would be happy with the range of dishes here and extremely impressed with the desserts, especially the fig pie. Very happy to come back again as soon as we can.

this was a very extensive buffet with not only nicely presented food but very tasty, there was an extensive selection of fish dishes, the marinated fish was excellent, and a great selection of desserts that did not taste as though they were mass produced out of a packet, well done

We recently went to Marbles with friends. We had previously been there on many occasions with family and while, on those occasions, I thought the food was average, we went there more for the convenience of having small kids that are happy to choose whatever they want to eat. Our most recent visit was a lovely experience. I felt that... More

We were staying at The Devon Hotel with a conference group, and dined in the hotel's buffet restaurant. We absolutely loved the night. Obviously a popular restaurant, and we saw (and tasted) why. We would come to New Plymouth just to dine at Marbles. It is that good!

This place was so noisy I could hardly hear the person sitting directly opposite me at the table. The tables were very small... only just enough room to put your plate, one drink and nothing else. And to top it off we had to dine with a "screamer" of a kid (at someone else's table) that nearly pierced our ears!... More

Hi Justine, I'm disappointed you didn't enjoy your evening with us, or say anything to our team whilst you were with us. Yes, we are a very popular restaurant (with young and old alike), but could so easily have moved you away from other more boisterous parties. My apologies. Kind regards, Peter Tennent More
