You need to book in early to get into this awesome rib joint. They were very busy the night we went but the wait didn't detract from the experience. Great Beer on Tap and a friendly waiter staff who kept coming around making sure everything was okay. The food was awesome, recommend booking in the weeks leading up to your... More

Everyone raves about Ferg Burger and Devil Burger, but the burger I had at flame was significantly better. My server Neal was incredibly nice and friendly. The amazing food and his friendliness definitely made the trip to Flame worthwhile.

Staff was excellent. Friendly and wonderful to my son who can be at times a fussy eater. Steak was well cooked and flavoursome! Ribs were very tender! Definitely coming back again. The restaurant size is small so you must book beforehand especially dinner time! I had the baked custard dessert. Was really good without being too heavy. The shortbread was... More

We read reviews and tried to get a table here without a booking. Just as we walked in there was a cancelation, and we got a table. Extremely glad we did, the steak and rattlesnake sauce was phenomenal and the ribs my wife had, well it was like something out of the flintstones! Book ahead, as the staff turned away... More

Had a hunger that only flame grilled meat would cure, so we stopped in to get our meat sweats on. Was not disappointed at all! Amazing food, and aged steak meant no blood leaking and great flavour. Huge shout out to the waiter "Nick" refreshing to finally have a kiwi work in hospitality in Queenstown, and his hilarious character and... More

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!
