After nearly two weeks travelling around NZ the Flame Bar and Grill has been our favourite meal so far. Great service from all the staff, particularly our waiter Nick!! The ribs and lamb cutlets were seriously delicious. Well worth a visit but make sure you book!!!

We came back to Flame after two years as last time we thought the food and atmosphere was amazing. Unfortunately the restaurant disappointed us a little bit. Food wasn't as good as before, not like last time we could die for the ribs. Staff not with the same energy and not that welcoming apart from the manager ( I think... More

I'm from Kansas City, I won't sit here and argue that we do the best bbq but we do it very well. That being said, the Flame Bar and grill knows how to cook meat. I had their signature ribs and my wife had the seafood chowder and the special firecracker chicken (name may have been slightly different). We got... More

We were lucky enough to get a seat in Flame tonight as all other tables were booked. Our waiter, Nick, was fantastic making us feel very welcome. The meals were great. Huge servings and tasted amazing. We'd thoroughly recommend this restaurant.

You will love this place if you love your meat. We ordered a mixed plate for one, chicken wings and a whole rack of ribs. In hindsight we should have only ordered 1/2 a rack of ribs as the 3 of us struggled to finish everything on the table. The ribs were to die, juice and tender and fall off... More

Had dinner here one evening in Queenstown and I can see why it's better to make a reservation. It's a busy place because the food is so good. Myself and my wife had garlic bread to share followed by steaks cooked perfectly. The food was plentiful and didn't need dessert. Had a glass of wine each also. Would recommend coming... More

Went to Flame Bar & Grill 2nd time to Queenstown. Booked this restaurant due to its popularity and we rock up without booking the 1st time around and there was a 1.5 hours wait so definitely make sure you make your booking beforehand. The table was ready for us when we arrived and the staff was very attentive, and also... More

Came in on a busy evening, got seated quickly at a table with a wonderful view. Service with very good (thanks nick!) and the good was delish. We split the massive seafood platter and sirloin. One of the best meals we had in NZ!

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!
