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!

I discovered Que Pasa a few years back on a previous visit to Aruba and have returned twice since then. The food and artsy atmosphere remain as good as ever, as do the friendly staff members. Although the restaurant was surprisingly empty when I first arrived--at about 7 PM---it quickly filled up, but the staff remained attentive and helpful no... More

We had dinner there. We enjoy seafood. Everything was tasty. The portions were large enough. The service was appropriate. The atmosphere is ARUBIAN. The place is cozy, with many private sections. The dinner for 3 with wine costs us less then $100 with tips.

We came to Aruba on a cruise and some friends happened to be vacationing there at the same time. We all went to Que Pasa for dinner. First, it was an extremely humid day and this place had wonderful AC. They even turned the AC up higher when we asked them to. The food choices were varied (there was even... More

It was our last night in Aruba and so many people had said that we had to try here. The food was delicious and the servers were so nice and helpful. We even stayed and had a drink with a few after we had finished our meal. We had such a fun night here, look forward to going back again... More

Chilled and relaxed setting & very artsy display where you can eat and appreciate unique art on the wall. But please do not under estimate their cuisine. Some folks that go every year for the past 18 yrs highly recommended this restaurant to us. Awesome friendly staff, high quality food. Reservation seem not to be required. Excellent Bus transportation! I... More
