We had three families out for dinner tonight. Food was magnificent. Most of us had ribs and others had burgers and steaks. Our waiter Nick was hilarious! If I owned a restaurant I would want him on my team. 2nd time I have been to Flame Grill and it won't be the last.

We came based on the many positive reviews esp on its famous #1 ribs. We ordered a mix of mains incl the steak and ribs etc. The ribs and fries were the star highlight. Skip everything else. We all made a beeline for the mouth watering ribs...

Once again food, drinks and service was amazing! Nick our waiter was fun and a great laugh. All our food was amazing as were all our delicious cocktails. Always such a great experience and the mushroom sauce is heaven in a bowl. Thanks we will be back very soon for sure.

I and my wife were there for an early dinner. It was not a dinnder time and most tables were vacated so we were introduced to our tables quick. We ordered a steak with some starters. The taste was great and the steak was cooked as we ordered. The staffs took good care of us and came to refill our... More

Great night out. The full tank is the way to go. Excellent meal and the service staff are great. Others in the group had the fillet steak which, at 150g was a better portion size for them. Bring an appetite. Vegetarians need not apply.

If you love ribs this is the place to visit! I think the best I have ever tasted. We went for lunch and had a very enjoyable lunch. Great service, big serveings and prices! Also top on the list is their veggie burger and die for mushroom sauce to go with the chips. Thank you Flame Bar and Grill.

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...

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!
