“Overwhelming, mindblowing....”
Reviewed December 23, 2012

After having reserved more than a year ago, since we wanted to sleep at the Oud Sluis guesthouse (Chico Y Luna) as well we had dinner at this amazing place.

Everything in this restaurant is well thought of, not only the foo, but the whole service, the interior, etc, etc. If you sleep in the guesthouse they have their private taxi picking you up and returning you to the guesthouse in style.

The guesthouse is almost similar to the whole restaurant and boasts the same style and feeling to it.The room is beautiful, the breakfast the next morning is a sort of continuation of the dinner the night before. If you go to Oud Sluis make sure you book the guesthouse as well, it will make your waiting somewhat longer, as they only have 3 rooms, but it will make the total experience even better.

We took the Père et Fils menu which was excellent, but certainly a lot of food as we had 14 servings, including the amuses / appetizers and different (3) desserts. Which to me was overwhelming and probably to much...

The food was excellent though and great in every way, so many different tastes ! Really brilliant.... The pairing of the wine and the food was amazing to, we took the wine menu that was offered but choosed to take half glasses, which was really smart as 10-12 different (full) glasses of wine would have been really to much.... So my advice to you, take the half glasses offer, you will still almost be drunk if you are not an experienced drinker !

Last but not least, the price of everything. That is mindblowing too, we paid in total 795 euro, which includes a night in the hotel (205 euro) and 2 Père et Fils menus, unlimited water (12,50 euro per person, smart concept) and the wine menu with half glasses (60 euro per person).... Is it worth it !? I don't know, I am happy that I could have the experience, but it seems to me a once in a lifetime experience !

“Best experience ever!”
Reviewed November 22, 2012

Yesterday we went to celebrate our 20th marriage anniversary in Oud Sluis and it was amazing. Everything was just perfect: the food, the wine, the staff and the ambiance.
We started with 5 beautiful appetizers and then chose the big menu (Père et Fils). I have never experienced this, but every plate was delicious, beautifully served, had a good combination of tastes ...
After having visited many starred restaurants, for me this is certain: Oud Sluis is the best restaurant I know.

“Out of this world !”
Reviewed November 4, 2012

After a long wait (we made a reservation in Feb.) we went for dinner here with friends. Expectations were very high and we were ready for a dissapointment. When we entered the restaurant, we were welcomed like friends and shown to our table. We arrived at 19:30 and left at 00:45. In that period we received about 30 different dishes. All of the were spectaculair. Even combinations which seem strange (herring with sour-milk) taste excellent when prepared by Sergio and his crew. There was not one single dish in the whole array that we did not like.
Many of the ingredients used are from local sources and each dish had surprising elements.The food and wines were served at our pace. As fast (or as slow) as we liked. We never felt hurried or felt we had to wait. The waiters were friendly and could talk about food, wine but also other things. Sergio came to thank us for our visit.

The experience was not cheap but worth every cent. It is an art, both visually and for odeur and taste. Everybody that is a food fan should go here at least once in a lifetime. I have added some pictures to give you an impression.

“Just Perfect !”
Reviewed July 3, 2012

For me this was an amazing experience. almost impossible that Sergio Herman can do this. The food was so good that we took (in the big menu , when you had to choose) the 2 main courses, k and desert and the cheese, this in the big menu. We really wanted to be sure to taste everything :-) . You have to go there once in your life.
