My wife and I enjoyed our 15th wedding anniversary here on the wholehearted recommendation of our wine tour guide. We were amazed at the type of food, many of which we haven't eaten, ever. My wife had the the rabbit tortellini and I had the Angus beef rib and we both enjoyed glasses of the Mr D's Red house wine.... More

We walked past a couple of times and this place looked so inviting and really bumping. We went in for lunch and got sat right at the back but we had a great view of the kitchen. It was great to be able to watch the staff work particularly the pastry chef. BUT I have never seen so many serious... More

A birthday treat get a way for my other half took us to Napier for the weekend and before we left a friend at work said, try to go to Mister D while you're there! Best advice ever. We called in on Saturday morning and booked for dinner that night. The whole experience was great from greeting to end. Delicious... More

We ate breakfast here both days of out visit. Staff are really friendly. Coffee is delicious not to mention the food. Even the simple brioche toast was stunning. Love you Mister D's

Have eaten twice at this restaurant - once for breakfast and once for lunch. Both times have been busy but we received good service and food on both occasions. Will continue to frequent this place

Dined here on Saturday tags 27/9 with my husband for my birthday. Place was pumping. The waiter was super friendly and helpful. I ordered an amazing kumara soup and my husband loved his D meat skewers. They also served complimentary ciabatta rolls. My pan fried fish had plenty of flavour and the pulled pork was well received by hubby. Planned... More

The waitress arrived at our table did not introduced herself however proceeded to inform us about the specials for the day. She was unfriendly and to be exact had no charisma. We ordered the fry bread with rosemary... More

We stopped in at about 5.30pm on a cold windy wet evening. We decided to have a bottle of wine and stay on for dinner. Service and meal were faultless. Bread with olive oil was complimentary. The bone marrow ravioli was divine as was the pasta and clams. We shared a dessert, chocolate sheets with three layers of semi-freddo -... More

Had brunch here, great coffee and amazing food. Had the corn fritters which were not your everyday fritters - so much better AND the doughnuts are a MUST try!
