Sergio Herman

Sergio Herman is the strong and passionate force behind the Sergio Herman Group, one of Europe’s most creative, unique and professional restaurant groups.

The Dutch cook and entrepreneur Sergio Herman who is known for his unerring sense of beauty and his love for Zeeland products, worked his ways for the past three decades through the gastronomic landscape of The Netherlands and Belgium.

Starting his career in his teens in the family restaurant Oud Sluis in Sluis, Sergio transformed this typical mussel restaurant from his parents into a unique culinary destination with high gastronomic expectations in a far corner of The Netherlands near the Belgian border. He had three Michelin stars since 2005 and was in the Top 50 of The World's 50 Best Restaurants for eight years.

Despite this success, Sergio decided to close the doors of Oud Sluis in December 2013 to focus on new projects. In 2010 Sergio had already opened Pure C, a fine-casual restaurant in the Dutch coastal town of Cadzand. Because of this, he came to the conclusion that it was more fulfilling to work with a team of specialists on the development of new restaurant concepts than to run a single restaurant, which he did for almost twenty-five years.
