It is the first time in New Zealand that the waiter was in a hurry ! We sat at the table and in a period of five minutes we asked 3 times if we had decided . I had no time to read the menu, drinks, etc. I ordered ravioli and I got a " greasy soup with raviolis floating... More

Absolutely love this restaurant and always recommend guests who come in to my workplace to check it out during their stay in Napier. I have been a few times now for dinner and it is always excellent food and a high standard of customer service. The sushimi is just to die for! However I was let down with the service... More

LOVE THIS RESTAURANT. Good value, beautiful food, great service, lovely wine list. Most importantly however is that the food is interesting, seasonal and ever-changing. The menu is lovely- the staples usually include dishes such as bone marrow ravioli and duck risotto- but I have had the pleasure of dining at Mister D when 'rabbit done five ways' was on the...

Mister D is in my opinion the best place to brunch in Napier. The food is superb and the service excellent. It has a great atmosphere and is busy because it is so good. They use organic food and its great. They attract a lot of families due mainly I think, to the menu and kids offerings. The place is... More

I have never really found a great cafe in my visits to Napier City, but Mister D's is a nice change. The decor and atmosphere has a relaxed feel, the staff were all friendly, attentive and willing to share a laugh with us. Coffees and donuts were delicious, my only wish was the donuts had more custard or jam to... More

The food was decent, tasty. The menu seemed slightly over complicated, the wine selection could have been separated from the food menu to give it more space. The waiter was slightly condescending when offering us sparkling or tap water.

Came for a work dinner. Was very busy on a Friday night. Service was faultless, food was divine but it is expensive but of the highest standard. Portion sizes are not large but plenty big enough for ladies. Only negatives were the really long wait for food and don't sit at the tables near the door - it's really cold... More
