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.

When my wife and I travel, we want to find the community gems—and for us, in Queenstown on vacation from Chicago, VKnow is it. The experience was as if Danny and Lizzy invited us to their house for dinner. Danny made us feel at home from the moment we sat down—as he sat with us to explain the food and (for me importantly) the wine. Everything cooked there is fantastic but Lizzy’s curry is over the top with flavor. And Danny’s knowledge of the local wine provided me with more great tastes and education than I could have ever expected (including an intro to the head guy at Gibbstown vineyards—go there too). Bottom line is we stayed beyond closing time sharing wine,local “new” friends and even petting the dogs which just added to the homey feeling. Before we left we went back a second time and our only regret was we couldn’t stay longer. Can’t say enough about VKnow...it was not just a meal...it was a community experience!

My husband said the venison (Fiordland wild) was the best he had ever had! My parfait dessert was particularly good (one of the best restaurant desserts I've had) and the Yukkies were fabulous! Everything else was good. Friendly atmosphere, owner Danny is very informative about the wines.

We loved our meal at Vknow. By far our best meal in Queenstown. The owners are passionate about food and wine and their enthusiasm seeps into your experience at the restaurant. Delicious dishes, great atmosphere and service. Highly recommend.

Had read a great review before coming to Queenstown and the restaurant/wine bar was a 2 minute walk from where we were staying. Called in to book for dinner later in the week, had a drink in the wine bar. Danny the owner was the perfect host. Dinner was perfect,4 of us all had something different and all the meals were exceptional. A well thought out menu. We had slow cooked lamb shanks, blue cod, venison and mushroom risotto and steak. All meals had different vegetables. A fantastic local feel small and intimate. We will be back.
