Sat with an excellent view and dug into a massive meat platter with rib and steak whilst enjoying a few beers. Not to mention very heated in winter and good service. Would definitely return.

Over the times we went we had entrees of; Green Lip Mussels (had these every... More

Went to Flame for my friends birthday it was a party of around ten. The food was seriously amazing and the service was great. They dealt with our party and a full restaurant in a timely and efficient manner. They even added a special touch of a birthday cake and candle. The portions are huge and I just can't stress... More

After reading the reviews and thinking it would be an amazing place.. dont be fooled! Being from Australia, coming to try the famous lamb cutlet was a huge let down.. ( as mentioned in the below comment, the chefs clearly dont know the different between blue and medium rare ) Lamb cutlets tasted like nothing and to get sauce on... More

Had the flame grilled everything and was so yum. Ribs were perfect and so was the steak. Make sure you try their magic blue cheese sauce as it's to die for. Would recommend anyone going to queenstown to drop in for a quality feed.

Went with my wife and 2 seven year olds. Food was to die for, service also good. We had the dessert special, salted caramel fondant. Could quite possibly be the best dessert ever!!!

After looking at trip advisor it looked like we were going to be in for a treat. Waiter made a couple of little mistakes, lamb cutlets raw instead of medium rare and pilaf rice absolutely disgusting not even counting that it wasn't pilaf rice. Luckily my eye fillet steak was wonderful.

Went back twice on our one week stay because we liked it that much! Great service, steak cooked to perfection and tasty ribs! They had an amazing dessert special, salted caramel chocolate fondant- one of the best desserts I've tasted. Also priced fairly for Queenstown. Would definitely go back if we could!

My boyfriend and I ate here on our last night in Queenstown and could not fault this restaurant. The staff were very friendly and helpful and the food was gorgeous. The restaurant was pretty busy but there was no waiting time for our food at all. I had the fillet steak and my boyfirend had the surf and truf and... More
