Description: This is a 6-7 minute drive out of Queenstown in a residential area, but well worth it. The food is absolutely first rate, different from the usual tourist menu, served by one of the owners in afriendly, laid back but efficient manner while the other owner cooks - brilliantly! Very informal, unusual, relaxed, unpretentious atmosphere . Great wines, great food and excellent value for money. No views, but if you're concentrating on the food,wine and conversation who cares? Highly recommended.

Warm and friendly staff, great wine list. Entrees were fine but left disappointed in our mains of fish which at $35 just didn't match anything else we had eaten in Queenstown. (The parmesan spuds were lovely .. but not much of them and the lettuce looked like it had just been dumped on top of the lot with not much... More

We have been to Queenstown on numerous occasions over the last few years and do already have a number of favourite places that we generally like to eat including Eichardt's, Botswana Butchery, Captain's Table to name just a few.  As is often the case though, where ever we are in the world I will still check out Tripadvisor to see...

This was seriously the best restaurant that we went to when we were in Queenstown! We had been to a number of the "popular" restaurants downtown and they seriously don't come close to the food that Danny and Lizzie serve at VKnow's. It is only a 5 minute taxi ride so do yourself a favour and make a point of... More

We went to Vknow while on holidays in Queenstown for my husband's birthday on 21st August. Before we left Australia, we googled top 5 restaurants in Queenstown & Vknow was rated no. 1. Everything people say about it is true, we were welcomed by Danny by name & he was so attentive. The food was delicious & we finished it... More

We loved the quirky decor. We were made very welcome by the host/owner who chatted to all tables of diners throughout the night. The food was fresh and in season. I had blue cod which was very tasty. It was a lovely experience.

We went to VKnow on Monday 28 August 2014 after flying in from Sydney. We had chosen to come here because it was rated #1 in Queenstown and we were curious to find our why since it is a little out of town. I had the bright idea to walk there from Queenstown which was a good way to build... More

We are spoiled for choice in Queenstown when it comes to good restaurants - but when it comes to good restaurants and great experiences you can narrow the list down pretty quickly. As we dined last night at wonderful VKnow, both my wife and I commented to each other that it had been far too long since we last dined... More

We were fortunate enough to be part of a double birthday celebration at Vknow. We loved this place...the restaurant was warm and cosy with such a great atmosphere. The staff worked like troopers all night and did such a wonderful job considering we were part of a large group and there were only four of them - nothing was too... More

My partner and I went here for my 21st birthday dinner after reading some good reviews. It's a local family business, with a great atmosphere and we had the owner great us and at the end of the meal gave us a complementary local grappa shot, the service of other staff was also great and the food was fantastic.
