Marbles Buffet is located in the middle of The Devon Hotel. It's obviously really popular with locals. Reception booked our table when we arrived. We had a drink in the small adjoining bar before having dinner. A lovely young lady looked after us and told us all about the hotel and town. Then we went to our table. The atmosphere... More

Somebody complained in these comments,about staff being in a hurry to take away their plates. I think they would be the first to complain of having used plates on their tables. The service was fairly unobtrusive and friendly, in a relaxed Kiwi way. The food choice was really exceptional. A mid week suburban buffet in a mid size town in,... More

Walking into Marbles we were greeted at the counter by friendly staff who took us to our booked table. The restaurant has had an up grade since we last came. Nice clean and simple decor. A staff member came up and briefly told us about the buffet and another staff member handed out balloons to our children. It can be... More

What a restaurant! We had such a great night. It was my wife's birthday and we could not have hoped for a better night. The staff were amazing. The food was sensational, but it was the staff that set this place apart from everywhere we've EVER dined! Top recommendation!!!

As a local, walking into the newly reovated Marbles it looked great. The decor is very modern and the new look is funky and clean...However the good stopped there. 1. Staff looked bored and hovered around tables, whisking plates ("Have you finished with that?") while we were still chewing out last mouthful! On more than one occasion throughout the meal.... More

We were staying at The Devon Hotel in New Plymouth (LOVED the hotel too), and dined with locals in their main buffet restaurant. We loved the night. We couldn't recommend this restaurant more. Fresh modern décor. Friendly, and smiling staff. The biggest selection we've ever seen of food, and then there is a chef that cooks other food to order.... More

Myself and a friend had planned to dine in at the Marbles buffet tonight, as we had not been in for some time. However, upon arrival we were denied entry to the restaurant as we did not have an adult with us. After explaining to the waitress that we were both 18, we were still told we could not be... More

Nothing fancy here just good food in a nice canteen style setting. Everything was pretty basic but tasted really good which was fine for the conference. The staff were all very pleasant and food was fresh and hot.
