Great little spot in the heart of town. The food was fresh and the servers were friends and efficient. I wish the view was a bit better, I like eating outside when I'm on vacation.

It has a Spanish name, but it is not a Mexican restaurant. It's really a little bit of everything. You can tell that they have a passion for the food on the menu, and they also have lots of specials that change daily. We had the Chicken Schnitzel with mushroom sauce, and the Chocolate Mousse Duo to finish. Both were... More

This restaurant is located in town so if you are staying in the high rise or low rise hotels you will have to take a taxi or a bus. Their tomato soup is out of this world. The same goes for the chicken schnitzel. This was our second time there on the same vacation.

This is one of our favorites in Aruba. We have enjoyed their combination of Island and Dutch cuisine for many years at this and their former locations. My wife and I especially look forward to their lamb dishes, and the lamb shank lived up to our expectations again this year. Prices are reasonable and the predominantly Dutch servers are efficient...

We've been to all the usual places: Papiamento, Chalet Suisse, Madame Janette's, etc. We have been disappointed by them the last few visits to Aruba. So we tried a local, smaller venue, Que Pasa. What a pleasant surprise! The restaurant is adorable and fun. Wait staff attentive and sincerely want to do a good job. The food was great. My... More

Que Pasa is one of those places you just keep coming back to. The unique selection of dishes reflects the island culture and seafood. It is nice and relaxed and reasonably priced. Highly recommended!

Despite the name, this is not a Mexican restaurant! The menu was quite varied and original, from steak to lasagna to fish. Waitstaff was quite attentive and helpful in making suggestions. The appetizers were sufficient for a small meal. The only disappointment was in the "special" dessert, a peanut butter/caramel cake served with peanut ice cream. The ice cream was... More

During our visit at my son's/daughter in law's house at Aruba we had diner at Que Pasa. This is a nice restaurant, with good food and very pleasant service. Still we had a faint idea that service-logistic was not 100 procent as the waitresses had to correct sometimes orders at other tables. Maybe someone has to look after the service-system... More

Four of us recently dined here at the recommendation of a friend who raved about it. We found the service to be very good, and the food was excellent. I was able to make a last minute reservation on Open Table. My lamb shank was enormous, and prepared to perfection. The tuna tataki appetizer was exquisite. The other diners enjoyed... More

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!
