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...More

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.

Thought this place was great with a real local and friendly vibe. I had the Venison Risotto and the venison was cooked perfectly. Great wine list and friendly puppies make it feel like home. Must have dish: blue cheese and caramelised onion bread!

If you are looking to relax, get away from the tourist vibe and seek out some a local flavor, this is the place for you. We have visited Queenstown twice now, once in April 2012 and more recently in June 2017. Both times were unique,...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.
