Cuisine: A La Carte, South African, Steakhouse
Price Point: Mains from $25 - $35+

You’ll smell the delicious aromas of this fantastic BBQ joint before you see it. Just metres from Queenstown Bay, Flame offers a secret South African BBQ recipe paired with great Kiwi hospitality.

Tucked away on the first floor, this dining destination has great views and even better ribs and steaks. Start the evening with cheesy garlic loaf, sizzling field mushrooms and Mozambique prawns. Then discover a selection of succulent free range grass fed Hereford Prime steaks and flaming ribs with special sauce. You can even build your own burger, tuck into fish of the day and add some greenery with a fresh salad on the side.

Yes, vegetarians are catered for – tuck into Flame’s speciality grilled halloumi and field mushrooms or ask staff for today’s options.

Stick around after your meal to try one (or two, or three…) of Flame’s excellent cocktails and desserts.

Who doesn't love lots of meat! That's what you get when you go to flame and as a first time rib orderer I was stoked I had saved it for the best experience. The meat was delicious, full of flavour and it was huge at only a half portion and I am a big eater. My partner raved about his steak and the mushroom sauce was delicious. A must have. If you can score a first table here - run at it, no matter what day of the week

Best food we had all week in Queenstown! Loved the ribs and the kids meals are good portions that was even enough for our 10 and 13 year old. Highly recommend the early sitting with children as the restaurant is very small and not that busy at 5pm.

This place is amazing! We ordered the platters and every single item on it wowed us. The servings were very generous and food came out super fast despite how busy it was! We can’t wait to go back!

Great service and amazing food. I have been a couple times now and Flame never ceases to deliver. The ribs will change your view on the world. This is the one must do in Queenstown. I ordered the steak and ribs combo, the steak did not disappoint and the ribs lived up to their own high standard. We ordered the Mushrooms baked in cheese for a starter. They were sublime. 5* as ususal.

The food was excellent, the service a bit slow but not to the point that it became a problem. Lovely outlook from the window tables and all 4 of us enjoyed.

Perks of dining with first table is that you get the best table:D the view was amazing and the food was delicious. Lamb skewers is a must try as well as their combos. Definitely will revisit!!!

The food was so delicious! Great ribeye. The peri peri prawns were way better than I expected (got a bit of a kick so be prepared if you're not into spice). The waiter seemed a bit impatient, he just wanted to take our order and go.. no time for any other questions about the menu. Its a small restaurant, therefore small tables but I still kind of wish they left water jugs on the table cus we kept running out. Will definitely be back for the food!! :)

Great food, nice service. It was by far the busiest restaurant we have dined at on First Table. Normally you are the only ones sitting there early but we were surprised by how busy the restaurant was at 5pm. Great atmosphere! Ribs were awesome, lamb was lovely too. Highly recommend.

Really enjoyed the Flame Mixed Grill and the dessert tasting plate. Highly recommended to go there.

As always we are never disappointed with flame. and what I liked the most was that they still had the same size portion as to what you would pay for full price.

Great food and so much of it

Hazel Suico

Great dining experience (as usual)! Excellent service and food.

Of course, their RIBS (full rack, most def) are easily my favorite dish and it can never go wrong with their awesome MUSHROOM SAUCE (and chips on the side cause I literally breathe chips) - these two together is heaven in my mouth. Flaming good, I must say.

Their crispy fried tender calamari strips served with peri-naise and soft herbs were the biggest revelation to me. To my surprise, they were really crispy and tender at the same time! Melts-in-your-mouth kind of food. (added a bit of salt cause I love my salt)

Definitely coming back! Which, I guess, you already picked up on based on this review ha ha.

Great food and great service. My husband had the mixed grill he loved it. We loved it all. Our water kept being topped up which was was nice.

Laura Mckernan

This food was amazing. All three of us have nothing negative to say. I got a half rack of ribs which was massive so defo value for money especially on first table . The only draw back regards to service is not having water on the table. Its a bit annoying wanting a top up while covered in rib sauce and trying to get attention of staff.

- dined at Flame Bar & Grill on

As always a wonderful experience at Flame. Always fully booked for a reason. Would recommend to any meat lover.
