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.

vknow is a great restaurant. Not in the middle of town but worth making the effort.

Food or wine, which is more important? At Vknow they are in balance and you come away very satisfied

Excellent Food. Excellent Service. Fantastic atmosphere. For over ten years, every time we visit Queenstown, we ensure we book in for a wonderful dinner and to spend some time with the hosts. The quality of the meals has never faltered and we will be back again.

One of Queenstown's hidden gems! Truly the best homemade gnocchi I have ever had. So fresh, light and fluffy! Warm and toasty vibe, friendly staff and a long list of great wines!

A restaurant about 3k from the centre of Queentown in Fernhill. You would not find it unless recommended. Husband and wife team, Interesting Italian decor which is homely without being special. Sat down one end so possibly missed a bit of the overall ambience. More game on the menu than one would normally see. There were 3 of us dining.... More

We dined as a family of 5 and it was unanimous that we had to visit again before leaving Queenstown. Well thought out menus using locally sourced, fresh produce and a thoughtful, balanced selection of wines. The ‘Yucky’ dessert is worth the trip to New Zealand alone.

What a fantastic feast :) Spaghetti for the kids and entree delicacies followed by lamb shank supreme the best gluten free pizza I've ever tasted! Soo yummy! Perfectly paired with wine which was delicious. A little pricy but you pay for what u get. Great ambiance.

We decided to go to Vknow because of the great reviews on TripAdvisor and were not disappointed. The fool was delicious and we went for starters and mains.
