About
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!

We had to wait 10 min for table and then another 30 min after orders placed, but the food is worth waiting for! Their signature ribs was juicy and tender, burgers, steak, and flame chicken salad were all delicious and very generous in portions.

Popped in for lunch, fillet steak sandwich, medium was delicious, and the ribs were cooked perfectly. If there is one gripe, the chips could have been homemade otherwise great food and location.

First tip is to book a table in advance as this place is very popular. All the food we had was really good and ribs plus sauce on it hit the spot.
