From a local perspective and taste buds; I have dined in most restaurants over my lifetime, but Que Pasa Restaurant has by far the best tasting food on the Island. Not to forget the beautiful local art work that is for sale and the impeccable service! The chef and staff have an incredible way of making a dinner transform in... More

We've only been in Aruba for 3 nights and have eaten here twice! The food is incredible especially for the price, the server Thomas is among the best servers we have had in the world and we are frequent travellers. I have Celiac disease so finding places to eat is sometimes difficult, not only do I have tons of options... More

Been coming here for 10 years and always a great meal. Always a great selection of specials. Smoky tuna app was delicious and the summer fish dish was huge with a grouper, tuna and mahi mahi filet in a delish peach sauce. Start with a supreme margarita or mojito.

We almost walked past this place due to the neighbourhood. Don't make that mistake. Well known place by locals and regular travelers. The meal was the best we had the whole week we were here.

The place looks cozy. The waiter was very enthusiastic and advised us what we can eat. The appetizer was ok but the main dish was terrible. The fish was dry, the main dish was exact the same as the appetizer ( same sauce and veggies). The waiter apologizes but didn't do his upper best to walk us out happy. It's... More

I visited Que Pasa over the Christmas holidays and was very much looking forward to their tomato soup. Every time I had it in the past it was thick and had small bits of cheese. I couldn't say enough about it because it was also delicious. However, this time around the soup wasn't up to par and my husband and... More

This restaurant is a little hard to find since its off the main road but its worth the effort to locate since the food was delicious and the staff very attentive and friendly. It was one of the few places open on New years day so the restaurant was crowded when we arrived and they were kind enough to seat... More

We've been here 10 days and have tried numerous restaurants on the island and nothing beats the taste, service and atmosphere of this one. Definitely worth a try. Also our waiter Quinten was by far one of the most genuine and funny waiter we've ever had. Out of all 9 of us, all 9 had the time of our vacation!

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!
