AMSTERDAM - Restaurant Oud-Sluis in the Zeeland town of Sluis has been awarded an extra star in the 2006 edition of the Michelin Guide to Benelux, the publishers announced Friday, making the establishment the third three-star venue in the Netherlands.

Delighted head chef Sergio Herman called the award a “great recognition for all the hard work”. Herman has run the Oud-Sluis kitchen for 15 years, cooking seafood and shellfish with Japanese and Mediterranean influences.

Herman believes the extra recognition from Michelin is a result of the exceptional cuisine. "We have our own style, an unusual presentation, and the addition of herbs and spices makes for constant new variety.”

The extra star brings the number of three-star restaurants in the Netherlands to three (Parkheuvel in Rotterdam and De Librije in Zwolle have been previously awarded the honour). Amsterdam’s La Rive was demoted from two- to one-star.

The 2006 Michelin will be in the shops from 1 December, two months earlier than usual, thanks, say the publishers, to consumer demand.
