About Us

Mister D is a little bit country and a little bit rock & roll. We believe in fresh, local produce delivered with great service but no fuss. We think we’re unpretentious but we really care about our food and large wine list. Mister D was created by two Hawke’s Bay couples with long backgrounds in hospitality and we’ve created the kind of place we’ve always wanted to eat in. We hope you’ll join us.


Call us flavour-obsessed or just plain control freaks. We make our own bread, pasta and pastries daily. Our wine list is a mix-tape of the best of the Bay along with some select imports from Spain and Italy.
