This was a really nice rib dinner - the full ribs were huge. We made the mistake of taking forever to order our food because we couldn't decide and ended up waiting awhile after other large tables ordered in front of us. It was nice though, the chicken salad with walnuts was tasty!

We came in twice in 6 days whilst on our honeymoon. The first time, it just smelt delicious from the street and we had an entertainment book voucher. The second..well its obvious! The first time was amazing so we went back. My husband had lots of ribs while we were there and he thought Flames were by far the best... More

Loved our experience at Flame. Definitely have to make a reservation at this popular restaurant. Thank you Shane for the best Lamb Cutlets I've ever had. You have to make sure you have an empty stomach because you won't want to stop eating. Highly recommend it whilst you stay in Queenstown, will be coming back again. Thank you.

I had ribs and chips for lunch and my wife had a chicken salad and we both walked away very happy. Getting a pram up the stairs was initially annoying but soon forgotten once fed. Thank you

I have eaten here every Queenstown trip I have done over the past few years and found the food and service to be consistently excellent. They have the best steaks in the region. If you are not into meat though it goes without saying this restaurant probably isn't for you but that is your problem now isn't it...

We just walked out of this amazing restaurant and I have never seen staff who respect their management team so much. From the second we asked for a table (since we didn't have a reservation) Susie was flawless with her service, I have worked as restaurant manager and the way you poised yourself was impeccable. We sat at the bar... More

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

A friend recommended Flame to me for my partners 25th birthday not long ago, he loves ribs and steaks and anything meat and she said this was the only place to go. She was absolutely right!
