Pure C

In 2010 Pure C opened on Cadzand’s beautiful beach.

Pure C brings an ode to Zealand, the world and life with sexy cocktails, magical food, superb wines, a spectacular lounge bar, a magnificent interior, great music and a wonderful panoramic view over the stormy sea.

In Pure C it’s all about the experience of sharing and tasting.


After your lunch or dinner at Pure C, enjoy an overnight stay at the Strandhotel with a delicious breakfast buffet. We offer you several packages in combination with Pure C. For more information about our packages we like to direct you to our website.

The unique location at the dunes, in the middle of the pleasant Cadzand-Bad, is one of our greatest assets. From the rooms you have a vast sea view toward Vlissingen and Knokke. On a clear day you can see the fascinating port of Zeebrugge and the high dunes of the coast of Walcheren on the other side. From the balconies you can follow the busy shipping traccif at the North Sea and the Western Schelde. One of the biggest sea-going vessels passing by.

While your children are enjoying themselves on the beach or in the indoor swimming pool, you can enjoy a salutary massage in the wellness salon. But you can also enjoy a drink at our pleasant lounge terrace. We will treat you to a beautiful view of dunes, beach and sea.

Is the weather less inviting to go to the beach? Then cities like Bruges, Knokke, Ghent and Sluis offer you a fine and cultural alternative to spend your day in an enjoyable way.

At the end of a beautiful day, you can enjoy beautiful sunsets from Pure C or from the terrace.

The extensive breakfast buffet is served daily in the restaurant between 08:00 and 9:30. Breakfast includes many local organic products. For example, the cheese comes from cheese farm de Vos at Biervliet. Marmelade, juices and mustard come from the “Groene Polderwinkel” and the bread from “Vlaamsch Broodhuys”. Upon arrival you can choose the table of your preference. 

Sergio Herman

Welcome to Pure C.

I created the concept for this restaurant by holding up a mirror to myself: where would I like to eat and drink cocktails? In this unique location I wanted to see a light-hearted, dynamic business with a holiday atmosphere: a little like Ibiza on the North Sea with funky music playing in the background.

A restaurant serving high-quality cooking, accessible to everyone, where you get good value for your money. A place with professional and passionate staff, dressed in hip clothes, who will serve you with a smile. This is a restaurant where guests share food, which creates a special kind of dynamic and a relaxed atmosphere at the table.

To have achieved a Michelin star just one and a half years after opening for a concept which is neither Flemish nor Dutch makes me particularly proud. This is the restaurant of the future for me, the kind of place where quality on the plate goes hand in hand with a relaxed, casual atmosphere. Let yourself be convinced by this extraordinary place on the mighty North Sea and experience Pure C.”

Syrco Bakker

Syrco Bakker (1984) has been one of Sergio Herman’s pillars for some time now. Trained under chefs such as Jean-Georges Klein, Jonnie Boer and Gordon Ramsay, he is now in charge of Pure C’s kitchen staff. Syrco Bakker exudes work ethic, zeal and inexhaustible creativity.

Being awarded a Michelin star in 2011 has already made it clear: Syrco’s cooking is part of the gastronomic premier league.

“Syrco Bakker is the right chef for this concept, a young man I inspire and who knows and has mastered my kitchen. A superb talent with as much passion as myself, who dives in deep and has the courage to show himself, his outlook, his roots.

The way he cooks at Pure C is superior, exciting and flavourful. The biggest proof of his talent is having earned the first Michelin star for Pure C, eighteen months after opening, completely on his own merit. He is one of my great promises, based on quality, commitment and character.”

Continue to follow the N49 and turn right at the T-junction before Knokke (McDonalds); towards Sluis. At the first obscured bend to the right, turn left towards Retranchement. Turn left before the bridge towards Cadzand-Bad. Continue on this road until you enter Cadzand-Bad. Turn left onto the Boulevard de Wielingen just passed the Noordzee and Wielingen hotels. The Strandhotel can be found half way along this road on the left hand side.

Take the A58 towards Vlissingen. Then take the N62 towards Terneuzen. When you leave the tunnel, take the N61 towards Breskens. Follow signs for Oostburg as soon as you see them. Follow signs for Cadzand once you have arrived in Oostburg. You will see a mill on your right hand side as you enter Cadzand. Turn right towards Cadzand-Bad just after the mill. You will arrive at Cadzand-Bad via the Boulevard de Wielingen after approximately 2 kms. The Strandhotel can be found half way along this road on the right hand side.


We have begun with the reconstruction of the Strandhotel. Except a restyling the current hotel is also undergoing an expansion with extra facilities which include an enlarge wellness and sauna landscape, swimming pool, lifestyle-ship and dynamic lobby. This development is in collaboration with Sergio HermanArcas Architects and Piet Boon.

The beach and culinary experience are fundamental for the new concept. The new Strandhotel is expected in 2018 en will be situated at the most beautiful beach of the Netherlands, located in the center of the natural and stylish Cadzand-Bad. Besides Pure C also the breakfast restaurant, lobbybar and apera-bakery will be cared for by Sergio Herman.

Currently the marina with 125 moorings is being realized in front of the Strandhotel situated between two seawalls. A yacht club will be build on the western seawall with a stunning view over the sea. Sergio Herman is will open his new restaurant in the fall of this year which will include a take-away cafe where you can enjoy delicious drinks and light dishes on the terrace or beach.

Naturally we will be open during the period of the reconstruction. The construction work will take place from Monday till Friday during 7:00 AM and 7:00 PM. For overnight stays from Monday till Friday you will receive special prices. There will be no construction work during the weekends.
