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.

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

On Sat 19 Jul 2014, we held a birthday dinner at Vknow Restaurant, Fernhill, Queenstown for 36 family and friends. We had the most amazing evening, made even more special by Danny, Lizzie, their team for the night and of course, little Honey who played an important part in the night, particularly with the kids. -Exceptional service-caring and efficient with...

We'll be back. Wine list is excellent and owner Danny knows his stuff. The restaurant is v relaxing. Feels like an extension of our kitchen.

We found Vknow through Tripadvisor and thank goodness we did because it is in the middle of a residential area and we would never have found it otherwise. We booked well in advance because it was to kick off the weekend of celebrations for my Mum's 70th birthday. We were travelling from Auckland and there were 11 of us with... More
