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.

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 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.

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.

Food was ok, I have dined here a few times over the years and have never really been overly impressed. Nick the waiter was great. I probably won’t rush back, there are plenty of places to get a great steak in Queenstown. I have enjoyed meals here before just not as much the last few times I have been.

Great food, good atmosphere, and solid service! Was everything we were hoping for, the ribs are particularly amazing, and being able to craft your own perfect burger is awesome (and you don't even have to queue for an hour to get it). Importantly there are also alternatives to red meat if that's not your thing, the Mozambique prawns are superb.

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.
