Not expensive and good service. Food was enjoyable and I would recommend to anyone wanting a nice meal that doesn't cost the earth.

Ok, Mr D's do a lot more than donuts , but seriously, a Mr D donut with injected custard - to die for !!! Coffee to go with it is also fantastic, one part of the family wants to graduate to their awesome looking salads, I'm not ready to grow out of their donuts just yet .

Mister D's was recommended by several people as THE place for dinner in Napier. The restaurant is appealing, comfortable, warm, and the staff top-notch. However, the food was uninspired and the meal just didn't come together. I want to be fair; New Zealand leans heavily towards meat in its diet, and I prefer lots of fresh veggies with my meat...

Mr 'D' is simply divine. Whether its brioche with coffee, creamy eggs for brunch or risotto, this is the 'in' place to eat. Love the cool atmosphere and attentive staff. Nothing is too much trouble. Iris

Great atmosphere, excellent wine list and delicious food. The pork belly is my go-to. Don't miss out on the donuts - they give you a syringe to fill them with your choice of custard.

Being a local you always have trouble ensuring our visitors leave the Bay with a good impression. Mr D's is always on our things to take people to list. Coffee combined with NZ's best doughnuts is a must. Meals there have always been great and the standard has never slipped. We have always found the staff to be great and... More

One of the best thing about this place is the skylights. It is just amazing it feels warm when the light gets in and if you set opposite to the kitchen you will feel like home somehow. The doughnuts I think overrated. But the breakfast was really delicious.

This was an incredible breakfast on the slightly wet Napier morning. Food and service was exceptional - coffee was hot and the place was warm. The ricotta cake with house preserves was a real hit! Will definitely be back.
