We visit this restaurant each time we walk the Milford/Routeburn tracks. After 4-8 days of hiking/tramping, Flame provides a great meat eating experience with some of the best ribs around. Price is reasonable, service is good and location in downtown Queenstown near the lake is handy. Will certainly visit again.

This is the 3rd time I have visited Queenstown and the Flame Bar, again it was outstanding! Good choice of grilled meat options. The sirloin steak was cooked to perfection as requested, and the meat flavour was outstanding.... the potatoes and peppercorn sauce complimented the steak perfectly. The peppercorn sauce comes on the side so it allows you to ad... More

10 people dined on a Sat night - the place was packed- food was magnificent and the service could not be faulted. Was amazed at how few NZers were actually serving. Staff went out their way to serve us Thanks Flame Bar all meals were yummy. Maz S

My family and I rocked up with no booking (4pax) and they turned us down because there was no space. the next sitting was at 8:30 which was too late for us, we had been out all day as were hungry. So, we started to walk away when the manager ran after us saying there was a cancellation (what a... More

I've been here twice and the second time we were placed at the window seat. The night night waterfront view is amazing, be sure to book at the window if you can plan ahead. We had the sirloin and flinstone size steaks, yes they were lovely but not the best steaks in queenstown. The space feels a little too open... More

Tom greeted us as we walked in. He was very warm and friendly. He helped us find a spot at the bar because the place was packed. Ellot from France was our bartender and both of these young gentlemen made our dinner truly rememberable. They went out of their way to give us ideas of where to go in Queenstown... 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!
