Grupo Paraguas


Grupo Paraguas is a group of restaurants of established standing on a national level, with a presence in Madrid since 2004 and that will be crossing borders with two ambitious projects at the end of 2019 in London and Dubai. At the helm are Sandro Silva and Marta Seco, the creators and opinion leaders of a new way of doing – and understanding – the restaurant business in the country.
Nearly 600 employees are behind the engine of the six restaurants that make up the group, all of which have a different concept, style and personality, but with the same common denominator: creating an unforgettable experience for the customer.
“El Paraguas” (2004), “Ten con Ten” (2011), “Ultramarinos Quintín” (2015), “Amazónico” (2016), “Numa Pompilio” (2017), “Aarde” (2019) and “Origen” (2019) are to be found within the international concept of fine dining, which can be defined as: excellent quality cuisine, high standards of service and unique environments in exceptional locations.



Located in the Plaza de la Independencia, at the foot of the Puerta de Alcalá and in the heart of the capital, AARDE was born, the sixth restaurant of Sandro Silva and Marta Seco, owners and directors of Grupo Paraguas.
AARDE is a tribute to the land and to 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, Silva and Seco have looked to Africa and have returned to their origin in times, materials, forms and recipes.
The complete and original gastronomic proposal that is defined as “organic with African winks”, stars roasted vegetables, millenary cereals and brown rice that are accompanied by fish from the Strait and organic meats. Leading role also have in kitchen, honey, coffees and spices. AARDE is an explosion in the mouth that will mean a trip through each dish.
