The Paraguas Group is a set of six fine dining restaurants founded in Madrid by husband-and-wife team, Sandro Silva and Marta Seco. With the first restaurant opening in 2004 (EL PARAGUAS), Sandro and Marta have created six different restaurant concepts that dominate the Madrid restaurant industry. In 2016, D.ream International became partners with the Paraguas Group to bring their restaurants worldwide. Since the partnership began, there was an expansion to open Amazonico flagships in London and Dubai in 2019.

AMAZONICO opened its doors in the summer of 2016. The gastronomic proposal combines tropical and Latin American cuisine, inspired not only by the countries of the Amazon but also the unique Asian and Mediterranean communities which inhabit them. The cuisine has a unique reference to Brazil, the country of origin of Chef Sandro Silva. Throughout the restaurant, customers are immersed into the lushness and verdure of the Amazonian rainforest. The chic interior design, created by world-renowned designer Lázaro Rosa-Violán, fuses the vibrant natural world with a modern and refined dining experience.

A tribute to quality Asturian cuisine, EL PARAGUAS is the first project of Sandro Silva and Marta Seco (founders) in Madrid. It stands out for its traditional recipes and careful presentation of its dishes. Quality and authenticity predominate as the main ingredients in an honest kitchen of excellent products.
Inspired by the great European bourgeois restaurants of yore, NUMA POMPILIO is committed to Italian cuisine, refined with choices that enrich themselves with the Italian nomadic spirit. The impeccable decor, both romantic and evocative, takes us back to a time of Italian origins while also expanding on past international borders. Sandro Silva (founder) explains: “Our restaurant is not only Italian; it is European and international…with dishes created by Italians who have gone beyond their borders.”

TEN CON TEN
This restaurant of Asturian origin, with a distinguished and cosmopolitan atmosphere, boasts a modern yet elegant dining room. In the heart of Madrid, TEN CON TEN offers a large and eclectic menu with several dishes honouring its Asturian roots – such as fried rice with queen scallops (‘zamburinas’) and tender beans (‘verdinas’) with quail. With a simple and cosy concept, TEN CON TEN has quickly become ‘the’ restaurant to ‘see and be seen’ in Madrid.

Inspired by the old grocery stores of Spain, QUINTIN fuses a traditional Spanish storehouse with a trendy café. Decorated with warm materials, the bar and high tables lend themselves to informal snacking. Only the best raw products are used, including a wide range of fresh seafood, fruit and vegetables, and, as a Spanish classic, thinly sliced Iberian ham.

AARDE is a tribute to the land and all the riches it offers us and has given us throughout history. AARDE is the exaltation of purity and maximum respect for the product. With AARDE, Sandro Silva and Marta Seco have looked to Africa and returned to its origins in terms of time, materials, formats and recipes. The original gastronomic proposal is defined as ‘organic with African notes’ and stars roasted vegetables, millenary cereals and brown rice that are accompanied by fresh fish and organic meats. Playing a leading role in the sugar-free kitchen are single-estate honey, coffees and spices.
