This is a great place. The food is quite bland though and was not spicy even though we had ordered for spicy food. The place requires reservation so don't just walk in unless you want to b embarrassed.

Lovely meal, big portions and flavour amazing. Book ahead though as they are popular and you usually won't get a seat if you walk in off the street.

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!
