Donde Jose

Enjoy a gourmet experience in Casco Viejo.

Located in the vibrant Casco Viejo, with no sign or obvious announcement, is the exclusive Donde Jose restaurant. This fine eatery is a dining experience like no other.

The single tasting menu will lead you through Panama’s traditions and culture with an explanation and a story from the founding chef Jose O. Carles to accompany each course. Discover Panama’s culinary identity through the endemic ingredients, cooked with varied techniques and presented with style and innovation. Throughout the dinner, watch the chefs carefully make final preparations on each course thanks to a carefully placed ceiling mirror.

Dinner is served simultaneously to all guests in the restaurant which adds to the cozy, familiar feeling. This makes it especially important to arrive on time for your reservation so you don’t miss a single course.

The only two available dinner times, with a maximum of just 16 guests at each, and a single small setting make for an intimate ambiance.

This dining experience is ideal for adults and children over 12 years old that can sit still for the full meal. The restaurant can accommodate some dietary restrictions and food allergies with advanced notice, but is not recommended for vegans.

Note: Drinks and tips are not included. Please arrive 15 minutes before your reservation time. Due to such limited space, late arrivals may lose their reservation with no refund.
