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!

Always a stop when in Aruba

We love Que Pasa! Came here on one of our last nights in Aruba. They always accommodate our large group of 18. Kids eat free and they always give plenty of food for them. I ordered the chicken skewers with peanut sauce. I think it was called the Que Pasa. I loved it. There is great variety... read more

During our visit to Aruba we visited 5 very good restaurants. This was our favorite! Every aspect was top notch: food, service, ambience. The staff were very friendly. Food was excellent. Service was A+

A creative special daily menu and sound a-la-carte selections are served with smiling friendly efficiency in artfully elegant surroundings. Our "go-to" restaurant on arrival and during our annual visits to Aruba just a short walk from the Renaissance Hotel. Each dish is well prepared, tastefully presented and never a disappointment!

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. It was a little hard to find but that is due to a lack of street names rather than the building building being poorly lit! The locals are friendly and one directed us straight to it when... More

I found this place pretty much by accident after shopping and just walking down the street. From outside it looked cute, colorful & happy, and the specials displayed by the door looked good as well. 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
