We chose to eat here after a worker at the Nevis bungy suggested it and it did not disappoint. Some of the best ribs I have ever eaten in my life and that is saying a lot as I am from Memphis, TN! The venue was very crowded and seemed to be both a traveler and local hotspot. One of... More

A well organised restaurant. Full house, quick service, excellent steak and Phoebe our waitress was outstanding. Very lovely and looked after us extremely well. The steaks were cooked to perfection and melted in your mouth. Highly recommended 👌🏻☺️

We went searching for great steak at a reasonable price. This place seemed to tick the boxes. We ended up getting a meat sharing platter for two, it cost around $75. It was huge and so so good. Make sure you go hungry.

Description
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!
