Fun Atmosphere and Great Spot to Watch the Sunset

Que Pasa's location on the bay is fantastic. They have tables and clusters of adirondack chairs right on the beach so you can't forget you're on vacation while dining. The food and margaritas were pretty good, but you won't leave thinking it was the best Mexican food you've ever had. The carne... read more

The food is really pretty bad - lukewarm, tasteless tacos and empanadas. The service is friendly, but really slow and forgetful. The beers and other alcoholic drinks are good and cold. The setting on the bay and a chance to dip your toes into the shallow water at sunset is really quite spectacular. Most noteworthy, during the day young children... More

This is a nice place to have a bayside lunch. The menu is limited and was ok, the servers are clearly working on "island time". They seemed more interested in checking their phones and talking to each other than working the tables and earning tips.

The restaurant bills itself as the best Mexican in town. It's awful. I had the fajitas. It came with a few scraps of peppers and onions that were drenched in grease. The salsa for the chips came out of a can. The biggest disappointment of all were the margaritas. I sent the frozen lime back as it tasted like one... More

What a gem this place is. They hand the kids beach toys so they can play in the sand while the parents can actually have a peaceful meal. The food was great. We are a gluten free family and had no problems with our choices.
