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.

“Italian in beautiful surroundings”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 30, 2013

I think the prices on TA are a little misleading as this is not at the cheaper end.

Good food, and good service and plenty of extras that make this a good dining experience if you are looking for something other than Moroccan food.

“Fantastic setting, food and service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 27, 2013 via mobile

We had a delicious meal, though the vegetarian selection is limited. Prices are high for Marrakech but service is great and setting atmospheric.

“An amazing surprise!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 24, 2013

We were been walking at Medina and saw a sign "Pepenero"- Italian cousine. Then was a terrific experience. The Italian food was wonderful (homemade lasagna - It's my tip). The price is honest. The atmosphere is amazing. It's a Riad. There is a ambient with air conditioning, It's too important in Morocco after you walk and visit monuments. The service is friendly. We recomend.

“the spanish novela El Tron must have been film here”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2013

Charming place, good Italian food some morrocon dishes try the chicken tanjin make sure to request a table in the Morrocon room is air conditioned and very nicely appointed. The maitre will arrange the exit back to a taxi. One needs to walk a few dirty dimly light streets to get there. But is safe and a wonderful adventure.

“Lovely food and service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2013 via mobile

Whilst this venue was first class in terms of food and service, our visit left a sour taste in our mouth after having a man show us a card for Pepe Nero saying he worked for them and would walk us to te entrance. In hindsight, perhaps this was naive of us, but as he ha a card we trusted him....he got us to the restaurant and then requested a tip. We only had 200 dirham cash an didn't feel that the 100meters he had walked us warranted that tip. He was very rude before shouting at my partner and walking off! Our visit was further tarnished by a man waiting at reception who said he was our taxi driver (we had pre-booked one) only to realise he too wanted a tip. The restaurant isn't very well sign posted so do make sure that you "know" where you are going!

Aside from these points, the food was lovely and the service was excellent. We didn't visit again purely on the experience we had on going to and from the taxi which is a shame as the food was nice.
