A really lovely, colorful, cozy spot in the center of Oranjestad. We only had a round of drinks but the food looked and smelled amazing!

This is a lovely place in the heart of Downtown Oranjestad. I was able to find great choice of beers, a great meal and the service was superb. I suggest the seafood soup. I would certainly return the next time I visit Aruba.

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!
