The restaurant is dark inside and the music from the speakers was loud, annoying and horrible. We waited ages for our food and it really wasn't very good. The meat was tough - good meat is not hard to get in New Zealand!

Although we turned up on a busy night with no reservation, the manager found us a table within 10 minutes (lovely corner next to the window!). Food and cocktails were fabulous and we didn't have to wait that long either which is always a bonus...More

We are local and have been to Flame many times as it was always reliable. Unfortunately it now suffers from a lack of service with mediocre yet expensive food and drinks in a stifling restaurant. I just wouldn’t go anymore.

In a nutshell, the ribs are amazing. So is the steak but if you must make the tough decision between the two, the ribs win. The ribs are so good that you'll no longer enjoy ribs that you used to think were great from elsewhere....More

With some of the best views in Queenstown, Flame is Queenstown's unique African grill-house. Flame, a small family owned steak house offers quality food and excellent service in a vibrant and intimate setting. This is a dining experience not to be missed. All our beef is grass fed from Southland and Otago and is aged for up to 6 weeks then flame-grilled in our secret basting resulting in it's unique flavour. Racks of ribs are served on a board and come supplied with a flame bib!! Seafood, chicken and vegetarian options are also catered for. Make sure you leave space for a Dom Pedro!! Flame will bring out the carnivore in you. Discover the taste of South Africa - A rare steakhouse, well done!
