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!

Went in for a quick meal on a Friday night in Queenstown. The ribs were pretty good, nice and moist with a good coating sauce, but not a green vegetable in sight. The place is not particularly upmarket and more for casual dining with a big group of friends. The wait staff seemed to be a big mix of nationalities,... More

Myself and a friend went to eat a very well priced lunch at Flame. We arrived and were quickly seated at our, very unstable table, the menus were already on the tables so my friend and I picked them up; I wasn't halfway through mine when the waitress rushed us into a decision. I would have asked for more time... More

Very tasty steak, perfectly cooked, and service was very good. Quite busy so might pay to book in the high season.
