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!

We went to Que Pasa after it was recommended by various people who have been there before. We were not disappointed. The food was served very pleasing to the eye, and the service was very attentive. Be careful of the Madame Jannette sauce; they say spicey but it is spicey like no other sauce we've had. Although it was not very busy at the time we were there, the various staff stayed on top of our needs to ensure an excellent customer experience. We would go back again (and actually considered substituting one of the other places previously planned). Reasonably priced for quantity and quality, nice atmosphere, and nice menu variety. I would recommend you try it at least once especially if you are staying at the Renaissance Hotel downtown. Easy and safe walking distance.

Que Pasa is a true gem. We decided to dine there based on the Trip Advisor Reviews as well as their interesting and diversified menu. The restaurant far exceeded our expectations. Located in an old building in a quiet area of downtown, this restaurant has character to burn. Beautiful art work decorates the dining areas and the bar and courteous staff give you a warm and friendly greeting. From the minute you walk in you know you are in for a special experience and it only gets better. Our cocktails were well prepared, nicely presented, and reasonable in price for Aruba, Our appetizers were outstanding, particularly the escargot, the French onion soup, and the carpaccio. Entrees of particular note included the blackened white fish and the skewered beef as well as the skewered chicken. Wait service was outstanding and in fact there is nothing to criticize about Que Pasa.

We ate at a lot of places in Aruba. Maybe I'm spoiled because I live in FL and seafood is easy to come by or perhaps I was dehydrated and needed more salt on my food, but every time I ate in Aruba I felt so unsatisfied.

This place was by far the best place we ate at that didn't cost $40+ a plate. The walk there from down town was a bit scary for two girls alone because there aren't any street lights and we noticed it looked as if someone had broken into the barber shop across the street. So I would suggest taking a Taxi at night or go in a group.

We had the Fried seafood medley for an appetizer and the seafood pasta and the choice of 3 fish for me. All of it was very good but I was stuffed by the end so come hungry!
