We had a great meal at Flame Bar and Grill on the waterfront. Both the steak and the full rack of ribs were delicious, and we had excellent service from our waitress Celine! Would recommend this restaurant for a good, relaxed dining experience in Queenstown....More

Really nice selection of dishes on the menu. Good flavours and well presented. Go for the grill menu as there name suggests it’s their specialty. Staff welcoming and friendly, slightly forced but only personal preference. Would visit again and recommended for all.

full rack of ribs is almost impossible to eat but they're more than happy to send it home with you in the Rackpack doggy bag. Delicious, great wines, and very attentive and happy service from our waitress Nia

Ok so Queenstown can definitely make a mean steak! This place has absolutely perfected their Smokey flavor on their steaks, and we didn’t expect the fried onions to work so well with the steak - good surprise. The sides we ordered complimented the dish well,...More

Huge portions! Great service and an amazing mash rooms sauce. The ribs were great and you have a nice view of the lake. Prices were also ok. Would come back

Conveniently located, the Flame Bar and Grill had great food and great service -- although a bit above average prices. The quantity was plentiful. Be sure to make reservations, or be prepared for a lengthy wait after 6:00pm.

We arrived for dinner with no reservation and an energetic full house. The staff directed us to the bar where we waited for a spot at the counter. Sitting next to the food preparation area was amazing. We saw so many beautiful dishes being so...More

The food was amazing but the service we received by a waitress named “Nia” made our dining experience one to remember. Highly recommend.

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!
