Very popular, busy restaurant serving great ribs. Service good but four of us were cramped onto a small table shoved up against the window. Overall a good experience and good food/service. Worth a visit.

Visiting Queenstown for ten days from Australia. Came in four times and was never disappointed. Between our group of 7 we ordered nearly everything on the menu and was not disappointed once. On top of the food, the service, namely nick, was also exceptional.

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!
