We were a company of 3. A good value all-you-eat dining. Wide selection of salad, cold/hot food, seafood, meat and desert. Waitress not so familiar with drinks available and had to return for a change. Since we were there just to gorge ourselves this shortcoming didn't bother us too much.

Dined at the Devon Hotel, Marbles Restaurant. We were welcomed and seated.
The food was well presented and chefs were constantly making food plentiful. A vast array of various foods including seafood and of course the hot meats and Chinese dishes. Well worth the money. Very pleasant dining.

Family of 8, great food selection and atmosphere. Wait staff was friendly and helpful. Tables cleared quickly and efficiently. Food was really great and topped up regularly. The deserts are to die for. Overall a good eating experience and highly recommend this eatery when in New Plymouth.

Visited with family from out of town on a Saturday night. Young wait staff seemed very disinterested, in fact I didn't see any smiles from staff all night. The only exception was the lady taking my money at the end of the night. Our waitress, while pleasant, was not familiar with the wine selection on offer and returned to the table several times to clarify our drinks order. Table clearance was timely and done inconspicuously. A wide array of food available, but very standard fare, deserts however, were varied and were well received. I understand that Marbles is a family restaurant and I wasn't bothered by the noise and children running around everywhere as it was expected. All in all a pleasant experience, however, I think wait staff need to appear as though they actually enjoy their jobs. Pricing is average, good value if you are a person with a large appetite.

Hi,
I'd appreciate if you can email me directly. Marbles Buffet offers a huge selection of treats, but not fillet steaks.
Never the less, our buffet is located at The Devon Hotel in New Plymouth. There are a number of dining opportunities from Room Service, to The Rocks, to an array of private dining and function rooms, here at The Devon Hotel. There is also a good selection of restaurants and cafes in New Plymouth and Taranaki.....all focussed on looking after locals and visitors to our region, alike.
If one of your steaks was not absolutely to your liking, I know our chef and his kitchen brigade would like to know, if his team was responsible. Actually, he'd love to have known at the time.
My email is: peter@devonhotel.co.nz
Many thanks,
Peter Tennent

PS
Marbles can serve you a TUI though.
