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!

“Wonderful Place”
Reviewed January 9, 2013

We had the best seafood dinner here! I had the "fish dish" which was two kinds of white fish and shrimp in a delicious buttery spinach cream sauce.The best fish I have ever eaten. My wife had the blackened whitefish. It was superb. Our friends had the chicken teriyaki and the que pasa pasta and reported they were excellent. For dessert we shared a creme broulee and it was divine. Three days later and we still are talking about how good that dinner was!

The ground floor has a nice bar area and table seating. The second floor, which we did not visit, has both inside and outside balcony seating. The walls are festooned with art works which are for sale and are very interesting to look at. As a gallery it would be a great place to visit all on its own.

Service was great. The waitress knew the dishes and was able to answer any questions we had. Our table was regularly checked on as we dined so we always had what we needed.

It was a really outstanding experience. It is on a small street in downtown Oranjestad nothing particularly outstanding in the neighborhood, but what a first class place.

“Top Rating Award well deserved!”
Reviewed January 7, 2013

I read that Que Pasa was recently rated the #1 casual food restaurant in Aruba for 2012. This was no surprise to myself or fellow travelers who frequent the restaurant every time we are in Aruba.Not only is the food and service excellent, but the welcoming atmosphere is what sets it apart from every other restaurant we dine at on the island.
Each patron that enters the door is warmly greeted by a staff member. No visit is completed without a stop at the bar, either before or after dinner, where hopefully, you will find Marvin serving up his famous sangria and other libations.
The food is anything but casual. Nightly specials are always a good choice! The versitale menue has something to please every pallet. We have enjoyed some of the best seafood dishes complimented by amazingly delicious sauces.
Congratulations to the entire Que Pasa staff !

Reviewed January 5, 2013

If you are looking for amazing food, local flair and hospitality you must stop by to visit Marvin, the unofficial Mayor of Aruba! We went twice! If the peanut soup is on the menu order it! Thanks for making us feel so welcome!

My wife and I LOVED this restaurant! We went twice in three days on vacation and each time got the fried Brie cheese appetizer which was delicious and I got the crispy Wahoo fish which was some of the BEST seafood I've ever eaten! LOVE this restaurant!

Very cute place with excellent food and even better wait staff. Great place to get a souvenir as you can purchase almost anything hanging on their walls.
