Fun place to eat!

Very hip interesting place to dine. Don't miss the Shrimp Que Pasa or the Banana Fritters. Don't be fooled by the name, it is not a Mexican Restaurant!

Our dive master recommended Que Pasa and we were not disappointed. Service was fast and attentive, and the food was the excellent. We had a mixed seafood dish and fresh tuna and both were outstanding. The chocolate souffle dessert was delicious and decadent. At the end of dinner the staff was even nice enough to call a taxi for us... More

Atmosphere was different and very unique. Definitely a conversation piece over dinner :) Food was great and it was open later than other places and they accommodated us without a problem. Would return and recommend to others!

The food was delicious and a real mix of Caribbean and Dutch. The staff were friendly and attentive and the building is cool.

The friendly hostess quickly seated me at a cozy little table by the window and the waitress came to take my drink order, then brought... More

I had shrimp and tortellini with a blue cheese sauce. Awesome. My wife ordered the Asian meat special which was like ribs w/o the bone. Again, excellent. Great atmosphere.

Small restaurant in downtown Orangestad. Offer creative specials every night. My husband loved the lamb chops. My favorite is their potato leek soup.
