We dined both nights we stayed in The Devon Hotel. A party of four (two couples). We all picked different things from the various sections of the buffet, and we all loved our dinner. The buffet changed a bit each night, so we all had...More

Marbles is a self service eatery which is popular for families with children. So - not a good choice for a quiet meal. As for food - the choice is brilliant and if you need Gluten Free hopefully you love salads or Indian/Asian dishes. The...More

Hi Vomo2i, Thanks for your feedback. I'm glad you like the new décor, but disappointed you didn't like the chops that were on the buffet the night you dined. Although there are dozens of dishes prepared every night, every night our buffet changes. Next time...More

A dinner for two cost us $89, with no drinks. The food was mediocre. The dining room was full of loud, highly sugared children celebrating a birthday and completely chaotic. The only reason that I am giving it 2 stars is their staff was friendly,...More

What a great selection of beautiful food. Unlike many a buffet style restaurant Marbles has a really good range and choice of menu items, not just “cheap” meals. Definitely a great meal in a relaxing atmosphere and ideal for family occasions or business. No wonder...More

Good buffet breakfast with all the usual offerings. Worthy of mention was the very good selection of gluten free, dairy free options and the little handmade vegan snacks on offer. Well done. I recommend the date snack, and judging by how quickly the lemon and...More
