Fast, friendly service. Delicious good. Well worth the price tag. Whilst its marketed towards meat eaters they do a mean salad. I had the Mediterranean salad and cheesy garlic bread - soo good!

I was slightly disappointed that they couldn't do crayfish during lunch, but that was soon forgotten when I dug into the pork ribs. The barbecue glaze/marinade is delicious but when you add another side sauce it takes it to another level. Devour the ribs while...More

If you want the best ribs in nz go to flame. You will not be disappointed. Whilst the decor could be upgraded the food is first class. Don't eat beforehand. ..The portions are huge.

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!
