This restaurant was recommended by a local and we were lucky enough to get a booking on a busy Saturday night. We four all very much enjoyed our meals - fabulous flavours and great service. We'll be back next time we're in Napier.

We had a great brunch at Mr D's. The variety of food was good. People had corn pancakes, eggs, patties which were beautifully presented. The staff were helpful and professional. The setting was very stylish and modern. The coffee was ok! A great dining experience.

Good food and service. Would thoroughly recommend this Restaurant for lunch or dinner. We are local and eat here and have taken friends to Mr D's when they have arrived in town.

Everyone in Napier seems to rave about Mister D but I just unfortunately don't get it. I adore their decor and the ambience and the staff are lovely. The menu sounds amazing and the presentation is fantastic. But as for the taste? Gordon says Taste Taste Taste and not sure if the chefs do this? I just get so disappointed... More

Had breakfast and it was only average. Nothing stood out as something you would look forward to eating. The service was very slow and waited a very long time to even get our coffee. It was not particularly busy and the meals were very slow in arriving. My hubby had to try the famous doughnut before leaving and was disappointed,... More

Recommended for good reason. There was good selection on the menu, four of us all had a different meal, each one very good. The waiters knowledge of both food and wine was excellent. We all thought our meals were very excellent value and would have gone back again if it hadn't been for other restaurants we wanted to try.

Friends wanted to go to Mister D's as they hadn't been before apart from having the famous donuts you inject yourself with a syringe filled flavour of choice. We went for breakfast. My wife had the smashed avocado which Looked and tased really nice. I had the 2 eggs, mushrooms and roasted tomatoe. It was fine but nothing special. Their... More

Mr D's is a place to take families for the ultimate doughnut experience or do a more 'grown-up' dinner with friends. The menu is extensive and filled with local delicacies, tasty share plates and meals so good, you won't want to share them. Having been to here for breakfast, lunch and dinner, I can highly recommend this local favourite -... More

Without doubt Mr D's is the best Brunch in town and the lunch and dinner are very classy and great value as well. If you just want to pop in for a coffee also have their brilliant donuts that you can fill with your own selection of tasty stuff. The service is great and the staff really know their stuff

this has become my favourite restaurant in Napier. The menu is fresh and interesting, the food is always good, the staff are friendly but professional, and they have good wine knowledge. Its a really buzzy place for relaxed dining.
