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!

Our waitress was so friendly and entertaining, menu had lots of variety with several specials not on the menu, quaint atmosphere, our food choices were all delicious. We choose the specials for the evening. Do call for reservations. I know there is an upstairs but we didn't call in time to get table up there. This isn't a fancy place... More

I have eaten at Que Pasa many times on previous trips to Aruba, and service and food have always been consistent and good. I made reservations before we arrived in Aruba, and told them it was my daughter's birthday, and she'd especially requested to eat there to celebrate her special day. We like to sit upstairs on the balcony, and... More

We only came here for appetizers and a drink on our way home from the beach but we were impressed. The French onion soup is the best!

I read about Que Pasa before we went to Aruba. It was the one restaurant I wanted to eat at during our stay. It was wonderful. The food was fabulous. Artwork by local artists surround you; most of the pieces are for sale. I bought a hanging with driftwood and ceramics. If you're looking for a different twist for a... More

Our second trip to Que Pasa did not disappoint. We had talked it up to my adult son before we arrived. The food was outstanding, and the servers worked well as a team to see we were attended well. This continues to be a place we will share with friends and family.

Had a delightful dinner at Que Pasa on a recent weeknight: sangria potent, food quite good, service excellent. We returned on Christmas night, which was a BIG MISTAKE. Sangria seemed to lack ANY alcohol, food was marginal at best, and service was terrible. Delivered salad and never checked on us for over 20 minutes, in spite of my not having... More

We requested non smoking section, unfortunately have non smoking section near the bar area with smokers doesn't cut it. The salad with goat cheese was good and another at our table had the dish with the calamari and he said it was horrible. Very disappointed, the restaurant smelled like an ashtray and we could not wait to pay and leave.
