Was here in Sep 2011 and the fillet steaks were excellent. The tiger prawn thermidor was just ok. We did not try the ribs but we saw many people having them. We promised to return and order the ribs. On 10 Sep 2014 we ordered the ribs and it was not up to mark. We had many better ribs in... More

Well rested steak, great ambiance, nice view, mushroom sauce to die for. I'm a chef myself and I know a good steak. Came here with boyfriend on a trip away from Christchurch. Attentive service. Meal was absolutely stunning and steaks were both amazing. We had the fillet steak one x2. One with chips one with potatoes. Both with excellently executed... More

What more can I say. I love their ribs. They're the best I've ever had. It's a busy place, so make sure you book.

This was an enjoyable restaurant for our last night in Queenstown. If you love meat this is the place. The ribs were delicious and the meals are very generous, don't fill up on bread!!. The staff were friendly and the atmosphere great. If you can get a table at the front on the restaurant there is a lovely view. Might... More

We dined at Flame during our honeymoon trip to Queenstown last month. Id advise booking in advance as it was packed the evening we were there at that was mid-week so we had to wait an hour for a table and there was a constant flow of people looking for tables after we sat down - always a good sign....

The reason we came here was that they had on their menu they could deal with allergies. When we went in we spoke to the lady on the front desk and she assured us that they could easily deal with it. We have dairy and gluten, but it was a case of don't have this and don't have that. The... More

Best restaurant in town. Must try the ribs and seafood platter. It tasted really really good. Fully booked on Monday at 6:30pm and we waited until 8:30pm for the second round. 5 of us ordered one mixed grill (for two), seafood platter (for two), one salad and two sides. Only NZ$200. Very reasonable. The portion was so big that nearly... More

4th Time I have visited this restaurant and would have to say That the ribs were not that good they were a little tough and not the usual flame standard that I would expect.Normally they just fall off the bone but these required some good knife and fork action just to get it off the bone.Another member of the group...
