Had not been to Mr D's for quite some time but a special occasion arose and we decided Mr D's was the place to celebrate. The welcome was warm and friendly and the service great. We had a couple of diet problems but they were dealt with with professionalism and patience. The main course was absolutely lovely and the desserts... More

We had been recommended this place - it was a busy evening and we were early. Food arrived pretty quickly and was hot, and tasty etc. However staff were not very welcoming and we felt our presence was " tolerated ". Didn't linger and wouldn't recommend it's ambience .

We came especially to taste the famous doughnuts and struck a bonus being able to sample the adult version ---Armagnac custard--yum! Service was excellent and our doughnuts and coffees ticked all the boxes.

We are local Napier citizens and for a lunch time treat dine here most satisfactorilly. My only grizzle is that the menu does not change very often, but hey, once you have a winning menu I understand not changing. Excellent choice of wines, by the glass, or bottle. Your waiter will match the wine to your dish for you.

Had breakfast here. Place has a great atmoshphere. Staff are very professional but friendly. Food is a little alternative and looks a little unwelming but the taste is delicious! Their service, kitchen area is lovely to watch. The donuts look amazing!!! Definately recommend this place.
