Had the diner for two and ended up having enough for lunch leftovers as well. Make reservations as it's not a very big place but the table top turnover is quite quick. Best ribs I've had.

RESTAURANT'S FAVOURITE REVIEW
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 weeks ago via mobile

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.

Instead of queuing @Ferg's we decided to have dinner @Flame's and we were happy about this decision! Wonderful beef fillet with chips and spinach....the Dijon mustard sauce was excellent as well! Sympatic and attentive Waitress and we had a quite table for two outside....inside it is quite loud! Make a reservation in advance!

Flame is one of the few restaurants in town that continuously serve between lunch and dinner. I really enjoyed the salmon with vegetables - it came with a great sauce. When we first arrived we were somewhat turned off by the young male waiter who had an attitude - which we noticed when he waited on all of his tables.... More

We decided to try this bar and grill with friends from our bus tour. We were all very pleased with our meals. Location was very good and it also had entertainment.

We visit this restaurant each time we walk the Milford/Routeburn tracks. After 4-8 days of hiking/tramping, Flame provides a great meat eating experience with some of the best ribs around. Price is reasonable, service is good and location in downtown Queenstown near the lake is handy. Will certainly visit again.

10 people dined on a Sat night - the place was packed- food was magnificent and the service could not be faulted. Was amazed at how few NZers were actually serving. Staff went out their way to serve us Thanks Flame Bar all meals were yummy. Maz S

Steak was stellar and the mushroom sauce was really good. Very busy place but the service is nonetheless friendly, fast and attentive. Highly recommend!

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!
