The food was delicious and the setting absolutely gorgeous. A bit chilly at this time of year but they provided us with knee rugs to keep us cosier. The guitarist/singer did a great job entertaining us, a talented man.

We enjoyed our night out from getting on the bus. Beautiful place and staff were friendly and helpful nothing was a bother. A waitress picked up I didn't eat meat and I was served some very nice vegetarian dishes, very yummy! We loved the show and were very happy we went, worth the money.

Dear 700ediem, It is wonderful to hear our staff were able to assist on the night identifying you were a vegetarian. They truly are a such a great group of women - a Manager's dream team - who have been with Flames for many, many years. Thank you for posting your positive experience and we hope to see you again...

Wow, what a magnificent experience. We loved every aspect of flames from the mysterious bus ride to a stunning rainforest setting. Pre dinner canapés a cold beer and bubbles flowing freely. The restaurant setting was beautiful with subtle lighting and the food a credit to the kitchen team. The cultural performance was enchanting. Highly recommend
