We love Que Pasa's! We come every year from Maine. It is one of our favorite restaurants. The food was awesome. The service was great. We can't wait to go back❤️❤️❤️

My husband and I spent 2 weeks in Aruba and we both agree that Que Pasa was our favourite restaurant. We took a taxi and almost left because we thought the restaurant didn't open until 7pm. Luckily, a server entering the building explained that a separate bar upstairs opens at 7pm, not the restaurant! We were immediately seated by a... More

On our recent trip to Aruba we tried Que Pasa for the first time. The children loved the chicken fingers and fries. The meal starts with an olive spread and bread and bread sticks. I enjoyed a large pork chop and my son in law loved the stir fried beef. There are so many choices for dinner you are sure... More

Excellent food. We had the Grouper Pescatore (excellent) and the Tuna Peppersteak (also excellent). This is not a mexican style restaurant, but serves creative food with an island flair. I would go back to try other dishes.

Que Pasa is NOT Mexican but rather upscale island food. My friend loved the fish stew appetizer. Entrees we tried were vegetable fettuccine with truffles and chicken schnitzel. Save room for dessert and try the fried bananas w ice cream. Very interesting building w unique art for sale.

Three of us dined together and we all loved the food and the art work. Outstanding service by a friendly, helpful staff. Very intimate. Terrific variety on the menu with each item sounding more delicious than the last. I highly recommend.

It's downtown and appears they have downsized a bit, they used to have two floors and are now down to one floor, renting upstairs to another restaurant. Good casual place with decent menu that is priced right. We always go at least once while in town

I had a pasta dish for dinner that was not what I was expecting. Our daughter had a chicken caesar salad and my husband had the pork chop. The wait staff was very accommodating and attentive and we enjoyed shopping the art gallery of local signs as we were leaving after dinner.

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!
