We arrived early evening and was warmly greeted by Nick, who was friendly, entertaining and informative. The meals arrived in good time and, without exception, were extraordinary. The meats were beautifully cooked, moist and very, very tasty. I would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone visiting Queenstown. Thank you everyone who made our visit so memorable.

This is the 3rd time I have visited Queenstown and the Flame Bar, again it was outstanding! Good choice of grilled meat options. The sirloin steak was cooked to perfection as requested, and the meat flavour was outstanding.... the potatoes and peppercorn sauce complimented the steak perfectly. The peppercorn sauce comes on the side so it allows you to ad... More

We went early which was a good decision as we didn't have a reservation. The place was filling up at 6:30 . The food was exceptional and the staff was friendly. I had the lamb chops and my wife the half slab of ribs. It was the best meal of our trip of a month.

My friends and I were drunk and noisy, but the staff handled it super professionally and friendly. The food was amazing, too. Get a steak and order as many of the sides as you can!

Served by lovely friendly and attentive staff, meals were well cooked and the portion sizes were good, rather overdid the butter on some meals but otherwise no complaints. Nice location as well overlooking the lake

We had the pleasure of going to Flame for dinner with our family including young kids recently. Flame is difficult for getting a booking, would recommend trying early. However the reason clearly is the amazing food. I had the ribs, which they are famous for and they were amazing, would highly recommend and the portion size was pretty big. Service... More

The waitress kindly remembered my husband's correspondence regarding the enclosed patio--when he inquired several months, he clearly said that we did not want to eat on that drafty patio we rejected six years ago, and she replied that it had been fully enclosed. And we can report that the enclosure does keep out the chill from the bay during the... More

Once I discovered Flame, I didn't bother going anywhere else. Food in Queenstown isn't the best, but it's excellent at Flame. Great steaks and fantastic salads.

Visited Flame with family after my parter spent the entire two weeks of their visit craving it!! Fourth time visiting here and as always it was amazing. Steaks cooked to perfection, chicken was delicious. Can never fault the food or the service. Writing this review is making me want to go back for more.

Thank rscott88

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!
