All in our party of eleven reported ok to very good mains, the shortcoming being the tasty but over cooked ribs. The waiter was the real negative; I am sure he will be let go by now.

We had a few people suggest that this was a good place to have a steak so we went for dinner one night...my partner and I both ordered a steak - a rib-eye and a fillet...with a side of vegetables...It was ok - both steaks were slightly over cooked and the vegetables were pretty ordinary for something that is $9....

My husband and I ate here because of the fantastic reviews. For the price and the amount of food received we were very disappointed. My steak was not tender at all.

My husband ordered the lamb cutlets and got 10!!!! They were yummy. I had t-bone and my son had the eye fillet. All cooked to perfection. It's not cheap but nowhere to eat in Queenstown is. Well worth a visit. Order the lamb cutlets and it's a good idea to book.

As South Africans who live in Aus, we really enjoyed Flame Bar and Grill. It has the feel of a South African steakhouse, which we miss. The food was delicious and the portions were hearty. The ribs were particularly good. I would definitely go back to eat at Flame next time I am in Queenstown.

This restaurant looks onto the center square by the harbor. It had a good menu and wide selection of foods. We were seated upstairs on the patio that overlooked the square which was quite enjoyable. It was somewhat busy and service was a little slow but still worth the dining experience. The staff was friendly and the restaurant has a... More

We had a table above the street, which have us plenty of "people-watching" opportunities. The food was good (though the steaks we ordered as "medium" were overcooked), and the portions were large enough. But the desserts...holy moly, were they HUGE & delicious! There were 3 adults in our party, and we were looking forward to a relaxing meal after a... More

Me and my wife had a dinner at this place. I called to make a reservation at around 4 pm, and firs was told that there is nothing between 6 pm and 8:30 pm (I asked for a table at 7:30). When I said that it wouldn't work, it miraculously became possible to have a table at 7:30. When we... More
