Anything Danny and Lizzy cook is fresh, wholesome and delivered with a smile. The food is excellent and the atmosphere much like the old sitcom CHEERS.. first class on all fronts.

Dinner at Vknow was a great way to celebrate finishing the Routeburn Track. The atmosphere is warm and inviting, the service was fabulous and a delicious meal to top it off. Highly recommend! Thanks Danny and team for making us so welcome.

Not really walkable from Queenstown but a short drive along Lake Wakatipu. A small restaurant with nice ambiance and good food and drink. Nice to get out of the center of Queenstown for a quiet meal

VKnow is a hidden gem we discovered in Queenstown. Danny and Lizzie were exceptional hosts and the food and wine are excellent!

We visited early in the evening, the place was half-empty, with only one or two tables occupied. Our kids went for the pizza, we got a steak and lamb shanks. The food was very nice. The restaurant has a quirky feel, with maps and old...More

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.
