Flame. A secret South African BBQ recipe wrapped around award-winning Ribs and Steaks. Flame has been Queenstown’s favourite Ribs and Steak restaurant for over a decade. We’re a restaurant of course, but we pride ourselves on the welcoming and enthusiastic service we bring to every table. Entertainment from start to finish. The views are stunning, the team are hand-picked for their passion and our warm welcome is just the beginning of what we hope will be a long and happy friendship. Join us for lunch Tuesday - Sunday from noon, or dinner 7 days.

It was a nice spot. The menu layout I found confusing. Boerewors for entree was ok, sauce made it really. I’m a big eater and this was a substantial entree. Had the ribeye for main. It was very tender and well cooked. It’s just personal...opinion but wasn’t a big fan of the seasoning. Our server was lovely and did a great job.More

Best meal I had in Queenstown. Last day so had to go all out! And this restaurant came highly recommended by a few locals and not just because I am South African, but the food is amazing! Go hungry! Worth skipping meals to make this...worth while. Staff was super friendly from the hostess to the barman, waiter and chef! Their recommendations of what to have was spot on. Plus you have a great view while enjoying your meal. Next trip to QT I will be back! Can recommend everything I had, so delicious.More

If you love lamb, this is the best lamb kebab ever, and the service was excellent on every level. Very friendly catering for everyone, even those in pushchairs

We placed a reservation and this restaurant simply exceeds our expectation. The lasy at the front desk delightfully greeted us upon coming and offered a seat as we waited for our time. The table was neatly prepared and we had our lovely personal assitant who...took our order and served our food. Her name was Lanie. (Sorry im not sure of the spelling). She was very pleasant and charming with our daughter. The food took 15-20 minutes but it was worth it. The photo doesnt give much justice as it is looking way better on that night. Lol. The size was just right and it was cooked to perfection. The price is reasonable and worth it.More

Holy sh*t. We had some poor service in Queenstown but Flame was not one of them. I don't know our waitresses name, but we were at table 130 on Monday 25th April at 7pm...and she was BRILLIANT. Charismatic, funny, great rapport with us, appropriately timed...check backs, she even came to say goodbye to us when her shift had ended. The food was incredible, but she was really the highlight. Not just of Flame but for the service industry in Queenstown in general.More

Best Mozambique prawns I ever had in my whole life. My friend had her birthday here and the whole thing was great. There was about 20 of us and the staff was lovely at accomodating us all. The wine choices were great along with all...of the food we had. Definitely one of the best places in QT for a great feed. Would highly recommend trying this place out!More
