Eight of us went here for dinner last night, great place, you do need to book as it is very popular The food was really good, make sure you go there hungry. The highlight for us though was our waiter Nick. What a character, so funny and witty and had us in stitches. The night would have been good anyway... More

One of our favourite spots. There is a good variety on the menu, seafood etc, this is a great place to go to if you're specifically looking for good ribs & steak. We enjoyed a set menu because we were part of a large group, but if you're wanting ribs this comes as part of the starter (on the set... More

You definitely have to make a booking in advance in order to get a table at this restaurant. The meals were very american steakhouse style. The service was good but since we were the last sitting of the evening, the waiters really stopped looking after us shortly after our meal was served as they were busy tidying up and getting...

We had three families out for dinner tonight. Food was magnificent. Most of us had ribs and others had burgers and steaks. Our waiter Nick was hilarious! If I owned a restaurant I would want him on my team. 2nd time I have been to Flame Grill and it won't be the last.

We came based on the many positive reviews esp on its famous #1 ribs. We ordered a mix of mains incl the steak and ribs etc. The ribs and fries were the star highlight. Skip everything else. We all made a beeline for the mouth watering ribs...

Description
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!
