This is a really good place for dinner on a rainy night. It is low profile but has an excellent kitchen. One advantage of being able to see into the open kitchen is the joy of watching the chefs at work. The menu is varied and there is surely something for everyone including freshly baked in-house breads and pastries.

This was our first visit to Mister D for dinner, we had heard it was very good so wanted to see for ourselves and we were not disappointed. The service was excellent and our food was just delicious.

I had lunch and brunch at Mister D on a quick 24 hour trip to Napier. Both meals were fantastic. Fresh produce, interesting menu choices, well priced, a great room and efficient and friendly (though not overly friendly) staff. My sort of cafe. Only dissappointment was that I could not visit for dinner too !

At Mister D's they take pride in their local Hawkes Bay produce making it the star of the menu. I have had breakfast here twice and once indulged in one of their famous donuts you can inject your choice of filling into. Might need to work my way through the breakfast menu and try out their evening dining too. Service... More

Monica Loves is a funky, low lit cocktail bar. The barman are great - one Uber cool kiwi dude and one French guy that we met.... More

Excellent service from young Oscar, friendly, informative and one of my former pupils...but now a young man going places....made our evening tonight. Along with the service the food was fantastic, John Dory in paper was absolutely delicious...with underwater seaweed an unusual but very tasty topping, on orange kumura. It smelt divine and tasted even better. My husband enjoyed his poached... More
