Qué Pasa?

Qué Pasa?

Qué Pasa? is a unique and authentic restaurant, bar and art gallery located in a historical colorful Aruban building in the heart of Oranjestad.

Although the name is a familiar Mexican phrase, Qué Pasa? is not a Mexican restaurant. Its menu has a European flair; with influence from the Caribbean, South America and even the Middle East; it showcases fresh seafood and meat signature dishes such as mouth-watering tuna tataki and juicy steaks. Qué Pasa? is famous for its shrimp dishes as well as for its many daily specials featuring a pinch of fusion and a dash of daring.
