A high-end restaurant with delicious and less usual food on the menu, including some local specialities such as Te Mata figs. Waiting staff were very attentive and pleasant. I very much enjoyed the duck risotto - the rice was wonderful! We had 2 gluten free eaters in our party, and they seemed to find enough things to choose from. My... More

The legendary donut was really worthwhile to try. It was already superb even without any add on jam in syringe.. We also tried their grilled fish which was really fragrant. Ambience was great too.

We dined at Mister D's on a Saturday night. The group that we dined with was quite drunk too but the staff were extremely patient and flexible. The food wasn't AMAZING but the service made up for the simple presentation of the meals. I would definitely return because I know the staff were friendly.

We had been told it visit Mister Ds for the donuts. With donuts on the menu, we assumed it was family friendly but it wasn't. We struggled to find food that the kids would eat and unfortunately the chef was not willing to make any small changes to his/ her menu to cater for the children (aged 5-10). We also... More

Yes, this place does get busy, there's a reason, it's very good. We just spent four days in Napier and enjoyed breakfast each morning at Bistro D and one dinner. We had no issues with the service but we weren't in a rush either, we were happy to sit and watch the pastry chef work her magic. The freshly cooked... More

Really enjoyed the food and service here. The wine was also excellent. My companions who had the doughnuts were particularly impressed

It's a shame that we didn't get to try the food here, especially the donuts, as I'd heard great things about this place and was really looking forward to going there. However, we left pretty soon after we'd arrived, hungry and disappointed by the lack of friendly and courteous customer service shown by several staff upon our arrival. We waited... More

We had a fantastic breakfast at Mister D's. Highlights were the corn fritters, cheesy egg and the baked beans with ham hock. Even better were the injectable donuts - injected with your choice or jam, custard or chocolate (or all three!). Great coffee, fast and friendly service... would definitely recommend!

You always know you are on to a winner when the restaurant is crowded and everyone is having a fun night and that was certainly the case with Mister D's. The menu was fabulous, the service terrific and the food (especially the desserts) incredible. Highly recommend.

Saw the Supreme coffee sign- our most fav do went in. Ended up having brunch. The D fritters with bacon and maple sauce to die for. I had the eggs, tomatoes, mushrooms on ciabatta. V good and reasonable price. Other people's plates looked fab too. Lots of kids coming in for the doughnuts with your own syringe to pipe in... More
