You better be hungry! The ribs! oh the ribs. So plentiful and so saucy! The creamed spinach was perfection. Awesome view out over Earnslaw Park, personable staff, delicious food. To top it off, it was really reasonably priced for what you received!

The ribs are tender and juicy, and that secret sauce makes the chicken wings heavenly. Considering the warm hospitality received in and around NZ, the service level here pales in comparison, comes across a little condescending. Perhaps business s simply too good.

We booked our table (of 10) a month and a half in advance, and when we arrived they could only seat 8 of us. We were crammed into a small corner table, and could see adequate areas in the restaurant that would have housed our gathering perfectly.

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!
