Had a dinner here with 3 others. The place was packed but we did not have to wait to be served.
The menu was interesting but what we all ordered was very tasty.

Haven't tried Mister D for dinner but have had breakfast, lunch and coffee there. I like the European feel to it - gives it a point of difference to the other eateries in Napier. The food always has a twist to it too and it's always yummy. Also like the waiter service.

Mr D's dishes seem perhaps deceptively simple. They are exquisitely prepared without apparent extra-fancy touches. But they are packed with delectable flavour! The service is great too. The atmosphere is "clean, modern". the only drawback is the high ceiling which makes Mr D's very noisy when it's at least half-full. Don't let that hold you back, though, from having a wonderful meal, drink, desert or snack.

The donuts and brioche were outstanding and freshly baked. I love how they make the breads and donuts right there. Be sure to get the custard injection, it was delicious and vanillery. The waiter was friendly and helpful (we were about to over-order), coffee was good. I think we'll have to go back in at least once before we leave Napier.

This is our 4th time there for lunch, so you can correctly assume that's because we reckon it's up there on several levels.
The staff are always that mix of welcoming/friendly and professional -- well trained, they know what each dish consist of, and, as an example, they don't have to ask who ordered a particular dish when they bring it to the table.
There's an extensive wine list plus several choices one can order 'by the glass'.
A couple of times one of us has raved about the duck risotto and, more recently, we've gone for the fish-in-paper -- which may sound strange but results in some amazingly delicious flavours.
Keep it up, Miser D and crew.
