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!

Good grill restaurant -

Really good grill restaurant, where the meat is well done and good quality. We were glad that we booked a table as the restaurant is very popular but certainly worth visiting and having dinner. We had steaks, chicken and the spare-ribs. With of course French fries (or chips) and a good salad... read more

Flame has a wide variety of meats and dishes that capture both South African and New Zealand culture. Definitely something to try! It has a lovely view of the water and the service is amazing! Was also quite amusing hearing the non-South African waiters trying to pronounce the name of South African dishes! The smaller portions of salads and sides... More

Booking is essential at this quality restaurant. We arrived a few minutes early and waited at the bar until our table was ready. The restaurant was packed that evening with a large table of 30 or so Asian customers, which staff dealt with professionally. We per used the menu for awhile and drinks were served promptly. My daughter & I... More

Great food and good value as the meals are large. I recommend the steak with mushroom sauce and a traditional marguerita. You need the book because it is a small, very popular restaurant.

We started with an calamari entree. It tasted good and the staff was very caring and check all the time if everything was ok. As main I took a surf and turf and my wife ordered a salmon. My meat was delicious but my wife experienced that the corn-cob was brown and rotten in one end. This is not acceptable... More

Perfect stop for lunch. The 15 dollar (legendary) ribs and chips combo is exceptionally good. They also offer burgers which look very filling.
