Description: 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.

Visiting Queenstown and we had numerous people recommending Flame, so decided to see if the hype was worth it.... the staff were welcoming, and very knowedgable and helpful, especially Josh, who looked after us superbly throughout what what was an amazing meal. We selected the pork ribs, and a chicken skewer, both, which were sensational. We were treated to a meal that was exceptional, and made even more enjoyable by staff who were attentive, down to earth, and faultless. Absolutely superb.

Wonderful waitstaff and we thoroughly enjoyed both the meal and cocktails. But this restaurant seriously needs to do something about their cleanup station which one passes by en route to the toilets. It’s also in view of some tables. It’s disgusting and if I weren’t so hungry I would have left. Whomever cleans the plates ought to be instructed to keep the area immaculate since it’s in view of patrons. An in it, not at it, regime might work.

What a fantastic place to eat! Especially if you love steak or ribs (half rack so there was room for dessert). We had both and they were delicious. My husband is fussy about his medium rare steak and this was cooked beautifully. We also had the Aromatic chicken and the way that was presented was amazing. The bombe Alaska was pretty special not to mention deliciously decadent. A great drinks menu as well - fabulous! The wait staff were so friendly - wait staff can either make or break your meal, regardless of how good or bad the food was, and the team here were great - super helpful with the menu, happy to have a quick chat and a joke. If you want a special dining experience, put Flame on your list!

We loved Flame Restaurant. The service was amazing - our waiter Josh was so friendly and attentive we can’t say enough about Josh he made our night so enjoyable. The food was tasty, and well presented. We didn’t mind paying a bit extra for the quality of service and food!

I know Queenstown was built on the dollar but Flame prices are eye watering.
I ordered a steak meal - well done and it came out charcoal.
I got a charcoal piece of steak a little serving of mushroom sauce which was delish and a little serving of chips - all for $44 - not worth it.
The desert was amazing and cocktails ok.
Our waiter was great, so friendly!
Location was great.

Hi Shannon - can you please check that you have the correct restaurant as the photo is of a restaurant called Pier - and it is on the ground floor, as per photo, (we are al the top floor) and also we do not have steak on our menu for $44.
