My friend and I came here as it was recommended by locals. The service is fabulous and the meals are absolutely delicious! Sensational place, would highly recommend booking in advance as it is seriously busy but is definitely worth it, Shout out to our awesome waiter Nick (hope you reach 100) 😂👌🏽

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

Excellent steaks. The garlic bread is outstanding! Service was very good. Wine prices were reasonable. Good venue for families whilst in Queenstown. Service was good. The views from the restaurant are excellent, but the Interior is starting to look a bit dated.

We came back to Flame after two years as last time we thought the food and atmosphere was amazing. Unfortunately the restaurant disappointed us a little bit. Food wasn't as good as before, not like last time we could die for the ribs. Staff not with the same energy and not that welcoming apart from the manager ( I think... More

I'm from Kansas City, I won't sit here and argue that we do the best bbq but we do it very well. That being said, the Flame Bar and grill knows how to cook meat. I had their signature ribs and my wife had the seafood chowder and the special firecracker chicken (name may have been slightly different). We got... More

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!
