We have been in New Plymouth and staying at The Devon Hotel. This is their buffet restaurant. We dined two nights. The buffet changed each night, but the selection is incredible. They must cater for every food taste and more.The restaurant is busy, but well laid out. Lots of room and we didnt have to line up for any of... More

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

I've never been much for Buffet, but the Marbles Buffet opened my eyes. The staff cleared the used plates quickly (that it the part that I was never sure what to do about!), and I was able to get a second helping of the exceptional roast beef and yorkshire pud! Then their array of desert treats was fabulous. The food... More

A huge improvement since what Marbles was like 12 months ago. The food has improved greatly, and the restaurant has a much better atmosphere. I will be returning.

The restaurant is inside the hotel but the atmosphere is really family, welcoming. We have made the booking for dinner. The time we walked into the restaurant, the friendly lady asked some details and then a young waitress led us to the table and introduced us to all the food areas. The variety is attracting with oyster ( my beloved).

My wife and I celebrated our wedding anniversary here. From arrival, the service was friendly and welcoming. We had never been before and were impressed by the quality of the food. Children were all catered for with balloons and colouring in. It is great value for families.

I hadn't been here for 15 year so wanted to take my family along as we now live in Northland. It's a great family restaurant and the kids loved it. I thought it was a little over priced, actually it was quite expensive. $93 for an adult and 2 kids with on 2 drinks. The food was nice but quite... More

Hi Warren, Thanks for joining us with your family. It's always great to have Taranaki's ambassadors back home from the winterless north! Even though we are one of the country's most popular restaurants, with a huge selection of dishes (changing nightly) on offer, the chef's station is always happy to be tested with the more adventurous palates. We'd love to... More
