This restaurant, which is in downtown Oranjestad, services a wide variety of food. Although the name of the restaurant lets one to beleive it is Mexican, it is not. We have been dining there foralmost 15 years and we find that the specials are always changing and that there is enough of a variety to please everyone's palate. The service... More

This was recommended by others at our hotel. The server was sweet, but didn't know the answer to any questions we had. The food was just average. Not sure what the fuss is all about. The decor and atmosphere was casual.

I was in February at Que Pasa restaurant & Art Gallery in downtown Oranjestad with a couple from Massachusetts (USA) and the food was delicious and the service was very good! The dessert was very delicious also. The art gallery was interesting and the couple bought two pieces of art to take back home. A successful culinary evening!

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!

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!
