Went to Que Pasa for dinner when in aruba. It was walking distance to the Renaissance Hotel. The restaurant and bar had a little tiki bar & art gallery feel. All of the artwork you can purchase. I would recommend going if you are in aruba for a while. There are many other restaurants that are better. However, the service... More

Hubby and I were walking through Oranjestad looking for somewhere different to eat and stumbled over this place. Had read about it somewhere saying the decor included local art available for purchase. Wanted to eat upstairs on the balcony, but it's apparently only open during high season. That was quite the dissapointment. Prices on the menu are in USD. We... More

This place is a definite treat, if a little pricey (meals range from $20-$30 USD), but by no means unreasonable. The Hot Pil Pil is not to be missed. It is an appetizer, a wonderful local soup with a spicy edge to it. We shared one and it was simply delicious. Bread is served with an excellent aioli and is... More

Stopped by on a fluke and boy were we treated royally. We sat at the bar and were immediately made to feel like family. Marvin was generous and kind and offered to let us taste anything we wanted...including the drinks! The daily specials of fresh sashimi tuna and salmon, duck confit and shrimp are the stuff of fancy white table... More

The restaurant had a cool feel inside - painted in all the vibrant colors that are a mainstay for homes around the island. The menu was kind of all over the place (too many different types of food with seemingly no overarching theme). My wife got the "beef & reef" and would rate it as average/good. I got the korean...

I have come here twice, a year apart. Both times I got the Pincho Que Pasa, which is basically a Thai Chicken shish kabob meal with peanut curry and peanuts. The meal is very good. There are no refills on soda's which is a disappointment, Everyone else in our party has enjoyed the meals there. If I am back in... More
