V.KNOW – Queenstown/NZ

OK, if I had to pick one of the best restaurants I had eaten at since I’ve been down under, it would be V.KNOW (also: Vknow – note the small little play on words and Italian pronunciation…), and interestingly I didn’t find this place in Australia but in New Zealand (recommended to me by lovely Shona). This place is almost unassuming, a walk up the hill on Fernhill Road on the outskirts of Queenstown, with an air of a neighbourhood restaurant about it. Our lovely hosts Danny and Lizzie helped us with the selection of dishes and accompanying wines, and the different courses created by Lizzie were simply divine (I highly recommend the venison mains).
