Food and ambience

Although 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 accommodate everybody from families to large groups. The Que Pasa crew hopes to welcome you soon!

I don't expect the way I was treated tonight in a restaurant. If I ask for a bacardi cola and I get something else, I will of course indicate this to the waitress. Then I get into an argument with the bartender and the waitress...that I'm wrong. If I want to report this to the manager, I will also be waved away. Everything shows that que pasa is seriously lacking in its service. You can't look to the other services ad wine and dine, but i'm a regular. This is my first complain in years on tripadvisor. As a regular of all the wine and dine services they let me feel like a fool. It's a shame because of the lack of experience from the staf on the floor i never come back for the amazing food.More

The food and service were great. We got the sushi rolls which were 8-10 pieces a roll. We were so stuffed. My picky daughter got the tenderloin and actually ate it all. I’d recommend the lobster cappuccino cute presentation and such a rich delicious base....The service was good and friendly. And we like the ambiance of the restaurant. Definitely one of our favs on this trip.More

We come to Aruba every year and on Thanksgiving eve we wanted to go to one of our favorites - Que-Pasa. Started out great, then seemed like our table was completely forgotten. Kids are their meal and my husband and I had an entire bottle...of wine before our server ever came to see us. My husband had to flag her down to ask about our meal. We even had spilled some wine on the floor and no one came to check on us or help us clean up the mess. We’ve always enjoyed this spot, but this year was very disappointing. After my husband asked about our meal, waitress said kitchen was backed up and it’d be “5 more minutes.” 15 mins later, we still had no food. Sad to say this will not be on our go-to list and we will not be recommending it to others any longer.More

This was our first night in Aruba. Someone recommended Que Pasa so we thought we would Try it. We had an early reservation and were seated in a nice table by the window. Our server was Andres - he was very kind, attentive and knowledgeable....My daughter had chicken teriyaki and I had the tuna. Both were excellent! Topped off with a lava cake to share! Thank you for a wonderful evening.More

We love Que Pasa.so we had to come back a second time and try some Top Chef Aruba dishes. The sushi boat was unbelievable! Great service, great food, beautiful native art. We can't wait to come back on our next visit.

My friends and I went to Que Pasa for a farewell dinner for one of our friends and Robert made what could have been a sad and depressing dinner into a fun and enjoyable experience! Thank you soooo much for that Robert :) In addition...we had mixed feelings about the food, but I enjoyed every dish I had. I started off with the cuban tacos and that was super yummy. Thx to Robert again, because of his thoughtfulness, he made my main course possible for me. I have a selfish allergy so he made sure adjustments were made to accommodate me. I love when persons go the extra mile to make their guests happy; so thank you Robert! My main course was steak and mashed potatoes, simple but tasty. And the best course of the evening was of course the brownie for dessert....yummmmmy :) I definitely recommend going to Que Pasa if you want a fun time, cozy ambience, every inch of this restaurant is a statement with the art and creativity they have. I loved it and of course took lots of pics too!More

Absolutely loved the ambiance, menu and top notch service. The menu is full of delicious options. We ordered the escargots, ceviche, spicy tuna roll, carpaccio and steak au poivre. Every single plate was delicious down to the last bite. To top it all off, our...server was the sweetest person ever. Special thanks to Ellys for making our night memorable and for explaining each dish to us so carefully. Hospitality at its finest. We will definitely be back!More
