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!

The restaurant had a cool feel inside - painted in all the vibrant colors that are a mainstay for homes around the island. The menu was kind of all over the place (too many different types of food with seemingly no overarching theme). My wife got the "beef & reef" and would rate it as average/good. I got the korean...

I have come here twice, a year apart. Both times I got the Pincho Que Pasa, which is basically a Thai Chicken shish kabob meal with peanut curry and peanuts. The meal is very good. There are no refills on soda's which is a disappointment, Everyone else in our party has enjoyed the meals there. If I am back in... More

There is a wide range of delicious dishes. Thursday's are all-you-can-eat sushi for $19.50. Have visited on both of our visits to Aruba. The staff is wonderful and will go out of their way to make your dining experience memorable. Very reasonably priced.

I've been to Que Pasa before and had a good meal. My second trip was epic service disaster. We arrived a few minutes before our friends and were seated promptly. We were then ignored for almost an hour before we flagged down a waiter. When we told him we had been waiting for an hour he gave major attitude. The... More

We always go to this place when In town, nice food with a good mix of locals, neighborhood looks a bit more sketchy lately than I recall, parking right next door. Home made sangria by the pitcher only now, but it's good.

We always like to take friends to Que Pasa it is a quaint place in the downtown area. Their service is casual but good. You can count on a varied menu and some interesting specials. We all enjoyed our dishes. This place is always on our list for a more relaxed casual night.
