Ten Con Ten

Calle de Ayala 6 Madrid


See Website

Following on their success with Los Paraguas, the team of chef Sandro Silva and manager Marta Seco have created another Madrid sensation with Ten Con Ten. Ten Con Ten’s aim is to offer equally excellent food, but in a livelier atmosphere and at a less extravagant price point. The result is that getting a reservation at Ten Con Ten is these days more difficult than even at Los Paraguas, so I suggest you book well in advance of your travel.

Ten Con Ten is still a posh dining experience, with white tablecloths and fresh flowers on most tables – with the exception of the tall tables in the always hopping bar area, which are available for walk-ins. Within the restaurant, alternate dining areas from the library to the bistro each offer a slightly different vibe. While still celebrating the cuisine of the Atlantic, with dishes like roasted hake with scallops, Silva also offers many decadently rich options like oxtail hamburger or beef tenderloin grilled with a chestnut purée. You’ll find some lighter options as well, like strawberry gazpacho and snowpeas with avocado oil. The wine list is nearly as impressive as at Los Paraguas, although you may prefer to start your meal with one of several classic cocktails. Dinner at Ten Con Ten is meant to be a festive evening out, after all.
