Oud Sluis is a family –run business of old. George Herrel, Sergio Herman’s granddad, was an artist and ran a café-bistrot on Beestenmarkt. Later, his daughter Ans and son-in-law Ronnie Herman took over Oud Sluis and turned it into one the most renowned mussel eateries in Zealand and Flanders. In 1991 Ronnie handed over the reins to his son Sergio Herman (1970), who for more than twenty years now has been at the top of the culinary game.
Driven by an insatiable longing for originality, creativity and craftsmanship, Sergio went his own inimitable way in Oud Sluis. Nourished by his Zealand background, Sergio finds inspiration in every corner of the globe, working with every available product and devoting himself with a close team to the ongoing search for gastronomic perfection.
