Love their sandwiches!

Great location, great service and the sandwiches were definitely worth the visit.The only issue that I had is that it took too long for the food to come.

The owners are Belgian. The name is Spanish. But the pizza is the best thin-crusted Italian pizza around these parts. A trendy atmosphere in the great Karen neighborhood, this is a popular spot for locals and internationals. Great wine-tasting nights, as well, but if you are looking for Tusker baridi, look no further for the perfect compliment to the amazing... More

Took 2 hours to get Kenyan tea(and this was only after another waitress's intervention) .poor pregnant manager had to get on feet to help out this particular waitress. Why hang on to bad attitude staff. You know the saying, 1 bad apple spoils the whole bunch??? Food was scrumptious upon arrival.

Que Pasa is convenient, as it is right in the middle of the Karen dukas (shops). The food is average and basic, but does the trick. Bar looks out into a road/parking lot.

I have been living in Kenya for 13 years. I have been going to the (few) restaurants in Karen (the neighbourhood where I live) for the same length of time. This to say: I'm a battle-hardened customer who doesn't complain easily. We all hate the sardonic motto This Is Africa (TIA), but we all know there is some truth in... More

I love the ambiance . The food is always amazing. I always have the italian pizza. They make it in a traditional brick oven. The steak is also amazing. I would recommend this restaurant any time. You get good value for money. The managers Ken and Lucy check up on you often and make sure that the service is great.... More

I am usually hesitant to eat fish in Nairobi restaurants but after trying the Que Pasa trout with calamari rings - I am hooked. Que Pasa is great for drinks with friends, the pub has a great ambience what Nairobians would associate with their 'local' The waitresses especially are on point, with all their clients and it doesnt matter what...
