Fourth visit yesterday in a month! Says it all really.. Only had Pizza there, although the rest of the menu is enticing, the pizzas are so good in taste and value its hard to order anything else! This place has exactly the right atmosphere too. A large well stocked and attended bar to the left as you walk in the... More

Que Pasa has a good and friendly bar within the small Karen Village. The beer is cold, the staff friendly and if you feel hungry then the restaurant offers good Italian food in hearty measures.

Yesterday, my sister and I dropped by Que Pasa to have light lunch and of course to catch up with each other. Upon having a shared pizza, two fruit juices and a B52, I handed the waitress on duty 3k. Only to get back 100 bob which by the way, I had to insist loads to get my change back.... More

It is a lovely place and easy to get there when your aRe in Nairobi. A stranger might think it is more of a pub than a restaurant. Waiters are very friendly, The meals are lovely. The restaurant is spacious and cool.

Travelling a lot and I often find cozy bars with a nice menu and people to chat with. The same intentioneel I had when visiting Que Pasa. 'Niente' I regrettably have to say. It was"t the bar and it's design. Food looked ok too, but the atmosphere wasn't there. Unfriendly staff, no warm welcome and no effort - at all... More

We ate here twice while spending a couple of weeks in Kenya. Hard to fault this operation. Bar service, well table service for drinks, could have been faster, but that's a small complaint. Great atmosphere, upmarket clientele, funky vibe. Menu was limited in range of both starters & desserts, probably 6 in each category, but the Mains options were many.... More

They have a live cooking station for pizza and an extensive menu - the pizzas are very good indeed. Our friend had chicken 'n' chips and sadly, the chicken was on the dry side - overcooked. The chips were good - as we all experienced. The service, on the surface, is very good. However, an order for food and an... More

This is one place you will get Authentic Italian Pizza. Good portion but not filling like many Nairobi Pizzas. Service is also good and fast, good music and a mature crowd.
