Restaurant Renato’s brings the Italian vibe to Bloemendaal aan Zee
Restaurant Renato’s has officially opened in the Dutch coast city of Bloemendaal aan Zee. With its family approach, the thin ‘Roman style’ pizzas, extensive choice of antipasti and high quality ingredients, Renato’s has already conquered many hearts in establishments elsewhere in the country. In Bloemendaal aan Zee, Renato’s found a place that had long been on the owners wish list: a location that also offers space for large family dinners, weddings and events and can be combined with a wonderful night’s sleep in Poort Beach Boutique Apartments. Add to that a magnificent terrace overlooking the sea, and you have the perfect recipe for that vacation in your own country.
Enjoying Italian specialties with sea view, what more could you want? We enjoyed it in the sun!

Restaurant Renato’s at Poort Beach Boutique Apartments
“We proudly opened at this unique location at the beginning of this year” explain owners Kim Lakho and Freek Schraa. “To pamper guests, that has always been our main motivation. In this beautiful place, in combination with Poort Beach Boutique Apartments, it all comes together. Thanks to our accessible cuisine -whit a focus on the pure flavors of Italy- we are there for everyone. From families to those enjoying a day at the beach, the quick bite or extensive dinner, when you take a seat at our table you are part of our ‘grand Italian family’.”
Family vibe as the theme for Renato’s restaurant
The family vibe is the theme in the restaurant business of Kim Lakho and Freek Schraa. In 2013 they took over the ‘baby’ of chef Renato Arduini in the Pijp area of Amsterdam. A restaurant with those typical Roman thin pizzas, with Renato himself in the kitchen and his family in the service. The feeling in the restaurant is still exactly the same, but Kim and Freek managed to copy the Renato’s experience to 4 other locations in Amsterdam, to the Foodhallen in The Hague and to Nijmegen. And now visitors and residents of Bloemendaal aan Zee can get acquainted with the homemade pastas and pizzas of Renato’s. “We believe that quality products, matching wines and the passion for good food make the difference between a mediocre -and insane experience. Our love for Italian cuisine runs incredibly deep. We want our guests to share in that”, says Freek.
Poort Beach Boutique Apartments
Hotel manager Koen Vogel is looking forward to his first summer in Poort Beach: “Thanks to the unique location, right on the boulevard of Bloemendaal aan Zee, we are a great base for a (family) vacation, wedding or event at the beach. In combination with Renato’s, we can pamper our guests in all areas.” The iconic building overlooks the sea and the apartments are warm and modern decorated. Thanks to the child-friendly facilities and the presence of kitchens in the apartments, the hotel also lends itself to longer stays with the whole family. Various tourist attractions, such as the Zandvoort race track and the Zuid-Kennemerland National Park, are located in the immediate vicinity of the hotel.
