My husband and I came to Que Pasa during our honeymoon trip. The food was phenomenal and the service was great! We are planning on going 1 more time before we leave!

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

We had a really nice dinner here - the food was very tasty and not crazy expensive (by Aruban standards anyway). Nice interiors and the staff were really great.

This restaurant provided my daughter, my parents and me with a great experience from start to finish. TOMAS, our waiter, was top notch in every way. His service was great, he was so friendly and my daughter told him at the end of the dinner that he was "so nice." He made up feel welcome and special. We had the... More

Que pasa was our first experience with dining in Aruba, and it set a high, affordable bar for theother restaurants to follow. Set back a block or so from the luxury merchants catering to cruise ship tourists, Que Pasa occupies a brightly colored storefront on narrow Wilhelminastraat. We arrived an hour or so before the Falcons kicked off to the... More

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!
