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!

We met someone on Aruba and they took us here for dinner, we sat at the bar and met some of the expats that are now locals, great bunch of people from all over the world. The food was fantastic, I had the Tuna special. Great place off the beaten path.

It's not just Spanish. The restaurant is located two blocks away from the Renaissance Hotel. The restaurant offers a fusion of cuisines. Like many Arubian restaurants, the decor wasn't five star but the food was very good, served by an attentive and helpful staff. The only thing I found odd was the sushi buffet. The options were limited. All the... More

This was our only trip downtown to eat. Restaurant is in an interesting part of town to see. My wife and I had two great fish dishes. The grouper was fantastic. The décor was dark but interesting. Tables were comfortable and the noise level was low. Only place we went to on the island that made great drinks. Mohitos were... More

Interesting, friendly decor - "the most colorful restaurant in Aruba". Outstanding food (I am a restaurant owner) at reasonable prices. Outstanding service. Kids eat FREE during the summer holidays!! Walking distance from the Renaissance Hotels.

This is located on a one way street behind the main part of town, but well worth it. Food and service was excellent. Very funky decor and art work. Tomato Soup is Wonderful.

Que Pasa has a daily chalkboard of specials. In previous visits we have always ordered the specials and didn't stray from that on this night. The shrimp rosotto and the tuna special with sweet potatoes were both excellent. A good atmosphere with local art throughout. The service is friendly.

We've been eating at Que Pasa for a few years now, and we loved it in the past. This year, it was okay, but not over the top like I remember. Not sure if it was my memory or if they have changed chefs - but something so silly as a side of vegetables. They looked like there were frozen,... More

We had our first dinner in Aruba at Que Pasa! It did not disappoint!!! The atmosphere is artsy and fun but the food is seriously delicious. The menu on their website does not include all of the creative nightly specials. Both my fiancé and I ordered from the specials.... He got the Seafood Trio (grouper, tuna, and shrimp). I got... More
