Allthough the name Que Pasa is a familiar Mexican phrase, we are not a Mexican restaurant. Situated in a 100 year old, traditional Aruban building, in downtown Oranjestad. We offer an international menu. There is something for everybody. Besides our menu we are known for our daily changing specials. Our chefs make sure to create unique dinners every night and our attentive wait staff is there to make your evening special. We can accomodate everybody from families to large groups. You have a choice of dinning upstairs open air or downstairs a/c. The que pasa crew hopes to welcome you soon!

The best food we had all weak

This place is a little hard to find if you're used to using google maps on your iPhone for everything (American cell phones doesn't work down here). It also doesn't have a view of the ocean like so many other restaurants on the island. However, the food here was THE BEST we had all week. It's... read more

My wife ordered the tuna tartare and the pasta with fish. I had the hanger beef steak. I was pleasantly surprised at the taste of the steak, it was wonderful. My wife however, became violently ill after about an hour after eating here. Not sure if it was the food or not but we suspect food poisoning. I recommend getting... More

This restaurant is a little off the Main Street in Orangestadt in Aruba but worth finding. The wahoo is fabulous and they have a good wine and beer selection. Also the hanger steak is to die for! Definitely a gem!

Cute decor with the gallery items, and very friendly wait staff. The Que Pasta suffered from overwhelming sauce and too few shrimp: similar problem with the Grouper Caprese (granted, it doesn't take much to dominate grouper). A wahoo special didn't impress, though a Portobello special did.

Always a "must" to eat at for dinner. Worth the taxi ride from the high rise hotels. Give them a try!

My husband and I went for dinner and we were seated in a little nook that is on the street. We loved our table and our waiter was so sweet. He was a student intern and was so pleasant and kind. The food was fabulous. It is somewhat off the beaten path, but worth it. I would definitely return next... More

This restaurant has been there as long as I can remember. I never really thought of entering because it just seemed cute and small. When I decided to enter I was surprised by the size of the place and it is as colourful inside as it is outside. The food was ok, we had melanzane as appetiser. This looks like... More

This was our first visit to Que Pasa and we were not impressed. It seemed a bit run down inside. They touted their tomato soup as being a favorite for decades. They must have been referring to Campbell's because that's what it tasted like. We both had a fish special that had a variety of fis in it. It was... More

We have gone to Que Pasa for years and were disappointed in the food in Jan. 2015, BUT they have found their footing and the food is just as good as ever. We had walnut encrusted Brie, Caesar salad, wahoo Italian style, creme brûlée and the chocolate soufflé. All were outstanding. We are so happy that one of our favorite... More
