Thank you Flame!! We thoroughly enjoyed an outstanding meal last night! All 7 dishes were amazing but, what was even more wonderful was the service we were lucky to enjoy from Alice. 5 stars Flame! 6 stars Alice!

Some of the best ribs around, and are very good value. Could almost share a full rack between 2 people comfortably depending on your appetite. Bookings are a must

Super friendly staff and the food was amazing. We tried a fair chunk of good places in queenstown (Botswana butchery, Sherwood etc) and would suggest Flame first to anyone. Best steak I've ever had!

Can't fault the service. Book online is easy to do. Calamari excellent, chicken wings finger licking good. Full plate of Ribs is enough for 2 people and the mushroom sauce is fantastic.

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!
