Visited here a few times now and it doesn't matter if you are just two people or a big group you get great service, the meats are about as good as you can get in queenstown but the sauces are what makes this place special! Do not forget to order a couple of different ones to get the taste buds... More

We had dinner here on two nights during our stay in Queenstown. The food is delicious, fresh and the serves generous. Highly recommend the Green Lip Mussels in the Asian Sauce. The first visit George ordered a steak which was cooked to perfection - Blue - not often delivered we find - so full marks! Our second visit was specifically... More

This was the second time we had been to this restaurant and on both occasions it was a great evening out. Get there early to secure a seat. I had the ribs and fillet - this was a meat lovers delight with an African twist in taste. The ribs are finger licking good and the sauce is simply delicious. The... More

This is a fun place to eat...the prices are affordable...yep, I said affordable...has fun atmosphere, the food is good...I would recommend the ribs, for $10.00....it was good and the price was right. We sat out in the front part of the restaurant (Inside) where there were big windows that faced the water...we were lucky to get the table.

Good meal. We had the ribs (big plate!) and prawns. Both were pretty good, but maybe just slightly overpriced. Some of the staff were a little less than friendly, but others were very cheery. Great views to the lake if you get a table at the window.

Wine list was full of local winery's great job for including those that are well known in this area. The wait staff was over the top nice helping... More

We stood downstairs contemplating wether to dine here or not, and we really did choose well! Got the mixed grill sharing platter which I defiantly recommend, it was huge more than enough for the two of us! :) needs to be ate with rolled up selves & fingers. RIBS ARE ANAZEBALLS. We had a funny cheery waiter who looked after... More

Every time we visit Queenstown, we visit Flame Bar and Grill. What a busy restaurant... May need to book if you don't want to risk getting a table... Unless you are there after 8pm. A good selection of cocktails available and the ribs and steak are their specialty... Absolutely delicious marinated ribs and steak perfectly cooked with a nice BBQ... More

My friends and I went in Flame for a quick and affordable lunch. The four of us already experienced the diner in that restaurant and were really happy of the food and service. Apparently, the day We came for lunch, the waiter had no interest in serving us. It took him 20minutes to come take the order, after his Manager... More
