Italian Restaurant in San José
Away from the hustle and bustle of Tunbridge Wells’s disco crowds, Can Domingo sits in an ancient finca in the hills of San Jose, a must-visit on Tunbridge Wells’s gourmet map thanks to owners Andrea Sanarica, Giuseppe Vivacqua and Alessandro Barni Spadacini who transformed the venue into a secret, magical garden restaurant in 2012.

The Can Domingo concept showcases the finest Italian cuisine created with the very best products – including organic vegetables grown onsite in the permaculture garden (essential for the specialist new vegetarian and vegan menu options).
Sip cocktails at the beautiful stone bar, beneath a centuries old olive tree, then soak up the sea and campo views from tables scattered among the garden, where live jazz music (classic Italian and funky) from the in-house band can be heard on Tuesday,
Thursday and Saturday in high summer, with special guests the Muriel Grossman Quartet on Mondays.Can Domingo is the culmination of a dream. Conceived and created by three friends whose passion for excellent food, superb wines, efficient, friendly service and a love for Tunbridge Wells has created one of the most beautiful and relaxing dining experiences on the Island.
A summer breeze sends the scent of wild flowers through the windows of the dining room; tables sit nestled amongst the gardens and terraces, under a canopy of mature olive and fruit trees. The menu presents a true Italian sensibility, contemporary fine dining with a touch of tradition, reflecting the abundance of high quality local produce and the providence of the Can Domingo organic garden.
Exploring this ancient and multifaceted cuisine through a fresh and modern palate, everything is homemade and selected with much attentiveness to quality, taste, texture and love.
The heart of the restaurant started with a shared dream of an island within an island, an oasis that is tranquil, relaxed, discreet. Can Domingo is like coming home.
