Great food and atmosphere. Our bartender Carly was exceptional- we'd highly recommend the mixed grill and upgrade to fillet steak.

An awesome place for dinner. We had the mixed grill, the prawns and ribs and all of it was very good. It was a LOT of food but every bit delicious.

I feel that this restaurant is a case of the Emperor's clothes. Most people remark how good it is although several also say they were disappointed. We were a group of 11 and when booking 2 weeks before were told that we would need to be in a separate room as there was no room in the main restaurant. We... More

Hi there - many thanks for your review. We are somewhat perplexed as we dont have 2 rooms, nor do we have proper seating in the bar - so would not call a day in advance to say you cant drink at the bar as it is physically impossible to seat any more than 4 pax in our bar. Can... More

Despite a not very inspiring entrance way being obstructed with empty boxes the restaurant was well laid out and the greeting friendly and helpful. The menu was quite short but with a good variation and the service was excellent. Our food came in a reasonable time despite it being busy and was well presented and delicious. If you can get...

What can be said about this place.....excellent menu and hard to choose meaning one had to go back more than once. Food full of flavour and the ribs were to die for.

We had made a reservation and were originally seated on the balcony where a very loud group of men were also seated. Our host came over and said she could seat us at a different table, initially at the bar but then this was changed to a proper table. The service all through the night was great, too. The restaurant... More

Very nice food, nice taste and very big serving.... be sure to have an empty tummy when you visit this place. Always full so you need to reserve. Superb customer service as well.

We won't be going back. Loud, food only ok and drinks range from watery to average. Didn't have reservation, sat at bar, service was marginal at best

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!
