My husband and I visited the flame on our honeymoon and had to make a reservation two days in advance which did kind of set some kind of expectation. Our reservation was OK, food was ok, service was ok and we actually found the atmosphere to be somewhat average. Not sure what the fuss was about and certainly wouldn't rush... More

But our friend came to visit from oversea, and with our past experience , the food and service were great. So we brought her to the Flame today. We are three and we ordered 2 lunch meals, the famous pork rib and... More

Was recommended to go here by a local and was not disappointed at all. My friends and I opted for the mixed grill which is not to be taken lightly and should only be considered by the very hungry. Quality of the food and service was amazing and i will definitely be back.

We tried it here as it was in our entertainment book so gave it a go. We were greeted by a friendly male. They were quite busy so we were seated at the bar while we waited for a table. The atmosphere was vibrant and the wine and food list great. We had just started drinking our first drink when... More

While I was instructed to be there, I will most certainly never forget Flames. Our waiters name was Tom. He had the massive task of attending to a table of at least 20 people. None were disappointed. The atmosphere was good, and the service was sublime, and the food was superb! I've eaten ribs before, but all other grills joints... More

This is one of the restaurants that we go to every time we visit Queenstown. It's popular so reservation is a must, unless you intend to be turned away at the door. My favourite items to order are the ribs, steak and green-lipped mussels (starters). These were so good. Hearty portions so expect to be really satisfied.

Visited here today for a quick lunch with a friend. We wanted something cheap and cheerful and that's exactly what Flame had to offer.
