We were warmly welcomed a looked after all night by Nick who was very attentive and had a great sense of humour. The food was really tasty, I would recommend the Roquefort Salad with Sirloin Steak, delicious. Make a booking in advance as its very popular.

Arriving at Flame Bar and Grill we waited a few minutes to be seated but following on the service was snappy and the food Excellent. My wife commented that not only was her Fillet cooked perfectly the vegetables were great and believes this was her best restaurant meal in a long time.

You better be hungry! The ribs! oh the ribs. So plentiful and so saucy! The creamed spinach was perfection. Awesome view out over Earnslaw Park, personable staff, delicious food. To top it off, it was really reasonably priced for what you received!

The ribs are tender and juicy, and that secret sauce makes the chicken wings heavenly. Considering the warm hospitality received in and around NZ, the service level here pales in comparison, comes across a little condescending. Perhaps business s simply too good.

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!
