Sergio Herman

Sergio Herman, known throughout the world as the »enfant terrible« among starred chefs, was rocking the hobs at the »Villa Louise«.

Villa Louise

In his former restaurant »Oud Sluis«, Sergio Herman became known as star glutton par excellence. In 1995, the restaurant received its first Michelin star, the second star followed in 1999 and in 2006, the gourmet restaurant was awarded three Michelin stars and an incredible 20 Gault Millau points (as one of only two chefs in the world). Having reached the height of his career, he closed the traditional restaurant at the end of 2013. His most important motives were more time for his family and the desire for a greater gastronomical kick. In 2014, together with his former sous-chef, Nick Bril, he finally opened the sacred design and gourmet temple »The Jane«. »The Jane« is a former church of a military hospital in Antwerp, which Sergio transformed into a unique restaurant in collaboration with artists, designers and DJs. Besides the classics of the »Oud Sluis«, new innovative delights are created in »The Jane« true to the motto «Food is our religion». It was a great honour and absolute pleasure for us to welcome this exceptional chef to the »Villa Louise«.
