Danny, Lizzie and his team have been in the game for a long time. This restaurant is consistently good , has a varied menu which changes and the staff provide a wonderful service. Slightly out of town so parking is easy! Highly recommend a visit or two to Vknow. Always a pleasure to go there.

High quality delicious food for a good price. We stayed around the corner in sunshine bay and it was recommended by our hosts. I would suggest to check out the toilets for a laugh.

Reviews of this little gem do not lie. We were greeted to a warm, welcoming vibe instantly paired with excellent customer service. The food is just devine. I tried Venison for the first time here, and safe to say they've made a fan out of me! It proved to be a hilariously funny evening as the power went out towards... More

My wife and I enjoyed a fabulous meal here last year, so thought we would bring my brother and his wife here for our final meal in Queenstown, on our ski trip last week. We are so glad we did. Danny and his wife are great hosts and make you feel like family when you eat here. The food is... More

Amazing delicious food, great service, uncrowded and good wines. Very good value too. We visited after reading many great reviews on tripadvisor and we were not disappointed. Off the beaten track in Fernhill but well worth the effort to get there

Another friend had the seafood chowder soup. .that looked quite impressive in the big bowl.. The blue cod was quite nice too. The fish pizza was quite good. We shared that as a starter. The... More

This was OUTSTANDING!! Hands down huge value. The food was all so very well made. Don't waste your $$ anywhere pretentious. My husbands ribeye was 1.5 inches thick and delish. My gnocchi was fluffy and beautiful. The desserts were excellent. Don't hesitate. Just go....

After reading several of the great reviews on this site we decided to dine at V Know on our first night in Queenstown. It turned out to be one of the better decisions of our trip! Both our meals were cooked to absolute perfection. My partner and I are now worried that we might never eat anything as good again!... More

First night in Queenstown we stumbled upon this place and were absolutely dumbfounded! The food, the atmosphere and the drinks were incredible. We ordered the rib eye and the gnocchi and were just in heaven. The steak was cooked to perfection and was accompanied by the perfect sides. I am a very fussy and plain eater and found that I...

We visited by recommendation of locals! Heaps of locals and they do takeaways (seemed very popular) here. Venison ragout pasta was very very good, staff very nice, good list with local beer Kea (recommend) and local wine. Staff well trained and quick service. The interior is not just the ordinary normal stuff: the wall at the entrance is covered in... More

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.
