Description: 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!

It's been over a week since I've emailed them and haven't heard back. I'm guessing they don't care, so I'll address my complaint on here. Note that the website gave me confirmation that my email was sent successfully. My fiance and I dined here after reading good reviews, on the week of our engagement and vacation. Their bread was awesome,... More

Located in the city Oranjestad, near the Renaissance hotel, this place offers a full range menu with well prepared food. Service is pleasant and casual, full range bar and decent wines are available. The food is good, popular with many locals as well as tourists, and very reasonably priced. It is absolutely worth a visit if you are in town... More

Enjoyed the environment. The main course was pasta with shrimp and Mai Mai was average. Banana Fritters was excellent. Service was good

By the outside of the restaurant, and even when looking around inside, you may never imagine how good the service and food is going to be. I was with my wife, but I am still okay to say that the staff are hot looking women who know all about great service. They were down to earth and they seem to... More

¿Que Pasa? restaurant is not what the name first suggests, i.e., a simple Mexican joint. It is, in fact, a great restaurant with a combination of local and Asian-fusion dishes that fill a nice niche in the Aruba culinary tourist scene. Staffed by quite lovely young Dutch staff, it's a happy place, a funky art gallery, and an excellent restaurant.... More

Enjoyed an evening with friends. The food and service was great. Tried one of the specials because we were told they were always the best. So true!

We are from Manhattan and have spent a week in Aruba in late December for the past four years. Last year, we went to Que Pasa at least twice, and were really impressed with the food, the decor, and the overall ambiance. So this year, we made 3 reservations ahead of time, expecting a similar experience. However, in our first... More

We ordered the tenderloin with bleu cheese. I never have seen such a "hunk" of bleu cheese. I opted not to have the cheese melted over the steak as I do not like bleu cheese but my BF does. We were splitting the meal. He absolutely loves bleu cheese, but there was so much that he couldn't finish it all.... More
