my partner and i had lunch here and while her meal was lovely, mine was a little average. the service was good, bordering on pesky but they were busy and keen to move people on when finished i guess. coffee was nice

Great food, and the service was good although a little stretched on the night we attended. Thought it lacked a welcoming and/or fun atmosphere. But the food makes it worthy of a return!

A must stop in central Napier, with great food and service. Had breakfast and dinner last weekend, and the Prime Minister was in attendance too before he went to the rugby!!

Nice food presentation and quick service. Nice to have bread on arrival. On the black board MisterD said to drink Bollinger...so we did! ;-)

All I've ever had at Mr D's is the donuts. I am not ashamed of this. They're decadent, terribly bad for you, and utterly delicious. Position your donut for maximum aesthetic appreciation, inject your chosen filling, then get stuck in. Heaven! I may try something else on the menu one day. but don't hold your breath. PS Service is also... More

Very stylish and inviting the waiters are very polite and entertaining and they certainly know what they are doing. Best donuts I have ever had and I feel defiantly worth the price. I will defiantly be back again.

What I like most about Mister D is that they go the extra yard to offer you a lunch/dinning experience rather than just serving you good food. The way they present the food is very creative and the staff tries to be more than just staff, they make it more personal. I like the semi open kitchen and the fact... More

I visited as part of an extended family group. The service was very good - just right and not over fussy, but friendly and fun. The food was reasonable but not spectacular.

Taken to this bistro for lunch by our ad agency, this was a perfect spot for a business lunch. The service was prompt and efficient and the food stunning. Mister D's has an open style kitchen, so you can watch what's going on. Today, I had the scallop entrée with ginger and cucumber - excellent flavours. A smaller dish but... More

This restaurant would fit in any of the swanky Auckland/Wellington scene - great food, friendly service and tasteful interiors makes this a lovely place to enjoy our breakfasts - and we came back for more. Breakfast tip: order the bacon!
