Off the beaten path in Fernhill, Queenstown, we came across this little gem. From the initial greeting to the final farewell, we were welcomed and made to feel special. The restaurant was pretty full, and everyone was equally well-treated. Lovely decor, varied menu, great wine selection and excellent value for money make this restaurant one of the best in New...

Excellent food, especially the thin Lizzy pizza. The fiordland venison and mushroom risotto was beautiful. Sunday night, not crowded, friendly authentic service, would def come back.

Just arrived in Queenstown NZ and was looking for a place away from all the overpriced touristy restaurants. Found just what I was looking for in Vknow. Great food, wonderful staff and of course tasty wine. Highly recommend the venison with risotto.

Wonderful difference options of pizza. They are really good taste and quality. I don't remember the names but we order 3 difference pizzas and where all super yummy. The garlic bread as well. Is a good option for take away if you live in Fernhill. Is not cheap food but is not expensive either. The staff is really nice.

My partner and I loved Vknow. The entire dining experience far and away exceeded anything else we found in town. The ambience was wonderful. Our host (owner) was a delight and made us feel warmly welcome. We took his recommendations on courses and wine pairings and they were innovative, fresh and beautifully presented. Dinner here is a MUST DO if... More

He is ready... More

Small cozy restaurant/bar. Good pizza and friendly service. Prices are average. Kind of a neighborhood hang out.

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.

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.
