Carribean styled restaurant. Feels a little cheap at first glance. Waiters are very friendly and when you get your starter you find out its better then expected. Main course just as good and the accompanying wine finishes it all. Worth the visit.

Just finished one of the best meals we've had all month long here in Aruba. Que Pasa is one of the most fabulous restaurants in Aruba. Their cheese platter for dessert is stupendous, and that's coming from a couple from America's cheese capital, Wisconsin!! Soerma Was our waitress and she was perfect in every aspect. We try to eat here... More

The atmosphere and service are superb and the seafood soup and daily special of a trio of seafood in a truffle sauce were to die for. We just wandered into this little gem, which, incidentally, is open late. No charge for an extra bread basket.. the tapenade, bread and bread sticks were excellent.

It's been 4 years since our last visit and if it were not for our very close friends/family there would be no new review..: I will say this visit was better then 4 years ago. I was looking forward to their goat cheese salad but that was removed from the menu. We were a party of 4 and we all... More

We went here with another couple and all of our food was excellent! Their tomato soup is fabulous, as was their tataki. We enjoyed a tuna special, a pork special and a chicken stir-fry that was fabulous! Easy to walk to from downtown, great service and excellent meals at very reasonable prices.

Wonderful place. Fun setting, excellent friendly service, and food to remember. Our soups - tomato and cream of broccoli- were great: remember, soup speaks for the chef. Blackened tuna and grilled wahoo were just excellent. And Pina colada for my wife came with free refill because barman needed to wash the Blender! Part of fun 😊. Walls are covered with... More

This is a local restaurant which welcomes tourists with open arms! The food is always fabulous, the fish specials every day are some of the freshest that we've had on the island, and the most inventive. The sushi here is wonderful, as are the escargot and carpaccio dishes. The waitstaff could not be friendlier, nor more engaging. Do yourself a... More

Friendly, warm greeting by the staff. Food was excellent. Good drinks and wine. Reasonable prices. As my main, I had the special fish dish of the night. Only complaint was that the waiter didn't explain the dish correctly. That said, it was delicious: lobster, filets, etc, in a butter sauce. Tasty, flacky, just great. My wife had the shrimp in...

We truly enjoyed our meal at Que Pasa. I ordered pasta with shrimp. It was delicious. They offer nightly specials. This place is a must attend.

It looks like a Mexican Cantina when you walk by, but it's NOT a Mexican food place. They offer wonderful continental food and sell all the art you see there. I've been to Aruba multiple times. Madame Janette's has more word of mouth, but the food here is worth it. I have nothing bad to say about any of our... 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!
