Description: PEPE NERO Restaurant Marrakech : A place of flavours on motion where the senses are constantly coddled Khalid and his team represent the same soul of a single ingredient: Excellence. This where I devote myself body and soul to my passion: cooking We strive to always be precise in our gestures, attentive to the oven, skilled with knives, a sharpened sense of smell, an eye to the market, intransigent with the quality of ingredients and demanding in the kitchen.The battle I fight every day with my team is the oldest in the world:That between the hand and fire.We created the sort of restaurant we would like to find ourselves..Pepe Nero was born to engage and satisfy our passion : Taste, without any constraints or formalisms, with simplicity.But not only. We believe that there has been a generational change in customers who are rather apprehensive of locations that are over formal.With this new role we want to clear away taboos and bring haute cuisine into step with the times.

“Simply the best!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 3, 2012

Simply the best restaurant in Marrakech. The food is outstanding, the setting great and the service fantastic. My girlfriend and I went there on the 29th November. It is signposted from the main square so easy to find, or if you phone they will send someone to collect you and take you to the restaurant.

Not expensive either for this level of food. Not only did they give us a free starter of duck but they also offered us a free glass of champagne! Really nice atmosphere, the staff were perfect. Not in your face but as soon as you wanted anything they were all over it. We saw them taking photos for other diners.

Great value, fantastic food, brilliant service and a lovely atmosphere!

“Details, details.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 2, 2012 via mobile

Taking the back alleyways to get here was a bit nerve racking, but when we arrived, it was well worth it. They met us out front and brought us to a private table (group of six) which overlooked the beautiful courtyard.

We felt like royalty when we received welcome champagne and lots of tastings from the chef.

The warm service staff didn't miss any details and were quick to respond to any requests.

Upon leaving, we were prepared to get lost in the alleys in hopes to find a cab, but again the staff was one step ahead of us and had two cans waiting for us.

I would have easily paid US$2,000 for this experience, but since it was only 2,000 dirham, this was beyond a steal!!

“Yummy”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 1, 2012

We ate here two nights running, it was easily our favourite restaurant in Marrakech. We had pasta dishes, as they're a bit cheaper, and loved all 4 things we tried. The complimentary Prosecco is a nice touch, and (contrary to other reviews) the meal was very reasonably priced compared to a similar standard of restaurant in London.

“Best restaurant in Marrakech”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 30, 2012

We decided to have dinner at on our first night in Marrakech after reading reviews on Trip Advisor. We took a chance turned up at the restaurant without a reservation and gladly we were given a table straight away.
Once seated we were offered a complimentary glass of champagne and starter. Once that was done and our orders placed, we were in for a truly wonderful dining experience. The atmosphere inside makes you instantly forget the chaos that is Marrakech. We had a salmon starter and lasagne for the main. I have to say that's possibly on of the best lasagnes i've ever had. It just melted in your mouth. We enjoyed ourselves so much that we came back 2 days later again without a reservation and were given a table straight away (the staff also recognised us from our previous visit). We had a seat in the left side room and that was really cosy and private with only a few tables around. Don't forget to have a look at the ceiling. Utterly beautiful carvings.
Will dine here everything night if I visit Marrakech again
