My partner and I had the best steak here! The cheesy garlic loaf is a must! Delicious mushroom sauce to accompany beautifully cooked steak. Excellent customer service! Would highly recommend.

The ribs were of large serving and the service was great! We also had the chicken burger (spicy). Similar to nandos but it is still great! :)

Lunch time ribs @ $20, can’t go wrong! Huge serving size. Could have fed 2 younger kids. Eye fillet burger was pretty good for a burger. Enjoyed this restaurant. Was great value for lunch and we certainly didn’t need dinner.

The food wasn't bad but at over $30 per meal, I'd expect a little more than barely average. Honestly, I've had nandos with more flavour. We got a good table, however, our main waitress seemed less than impressed to be there to the point where...More

Went to this restaurant last night & enjoyed the whole concept. A South African meat feast which requires you to starve yourself before hand if you want to eat all they put before you. My wife had a half rack of beef which I swear...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!
