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!

“The best steak and grilled meat ever!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 July 2014

If you visit Queenstown and miss out on eating here, then you're missing out big time! The food here is out of the world!

I have travelled to many countries and eaten at some of the best restaurants, but have yet to eat such perfectly grilled meat anywhere.

The done-ness of the meat, the uniqueness of the sauces and the way they complement the meat make for a delicious gastronomical experience. I had a burger done medium rare and my wife had a grilled chicken and they were both excellent.

The service was quick and efficient and the view and ambience excellent.

Ensure you book in advance as this is understandably popular and usually full. Not to be missed!

Great service, staff were very well trained and professional. The food here is amazing. We all had the mixed grill, huge portions (we took the rest home), and the best ribs ever.

“Amazing food, hence bookings are essential!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 July 2014

We were recommended this restaurant by a taxi driver, but it's so good there's no dropping in - you def have to book in advance! We had delicious ribs - they were so BIG my husband and I shared it with a side each. He ordered the mushrooms for entrée and said they were fabulously delicious! There's NO WAY hubby or I could have eaten all of the ribs by ourselves, but our mate did and thoroughly enjoyed it. The servings are HUGE. Our friend's wife had the steak and even though it was a small serving (very thick) she said it was the best steak she'd ever had!! It's well worth the visit if you are in Queenstown :)
