With some of the best views in Queenstown, Flame is Queenstown's unique African grill-house. Flame 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!

We went to Flame without a reservation and it was really busy but the lovely host said that we would be able to have a table in half an hour and I'm so glad we stayed. We had amazing cocktails at the bar during our wait. We ordered the mixed grill and the ribs were just incredible. Highly recommend it.... More

A must visit in Queenstown, you will get the best steaks in town and a great atmosphere. It is not the cheapest meal, but simply the best. It is very central and easy to access, a special mention to our waiter Gary for ensuring we had a great evening, well done Team Flame.

Amazing meat selection here, best ribs in town hands down. 15$ lunch tops every where else for value and quality. Girls in the front desk squeezed us in although we no reservation. Diamond.

We hadn't made a reservation but the staff were really helpful and managed to squeeze us in, we were even lucky enough to get a table on the balcony which had... More

My friends and I decided to go for the lunch set promotion- the range is between NZD15-20. I ordered the pork ribs ( only NZD15, for dinner the ribs costs around almost double the price) , and I must said I was impressed. The portion of pork ribs and fries were huge, and they were well-cooked too. The atmosphere was... More
