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.

“A stunning restaurant with great Moroccan and Italian food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 17, 2013

The restaurant was just beautiful and the service was efficient and attentive. The food was delicious and you can choose from an Italian or Moroccan menu, although I was quite full after my starter. The wine list was also good. All in all a very delicious and civilised meal.

“Go twice ........”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 17, 2013

... and enjoy both the Moroccan- as well as the Italian dishes, for they are all very tasty and plates are genuine pieces of art.
Wines were excellent, really added to the exquisit taste of the food.
Admire the beautiful riad with its gardens and fountains, fairy-tale lit at night, the interesting paintings on the walls in the seperate dining rooms, the pleasant atmosphere.
Staff is very polite and well trained to high standards, always with a smile and ready to chat with the guests,
We spent 2 beautiful evenings at Pepe Nero, absolute high lights of our culinary adventures in Marrakech.

“Try the chocolate cake!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 15, 2013

We had a great dinner at Pepe Nero. The setting was beautiful and tranquil compared to the chaos of Marrakech and the service was brilliant. The food was excellent and we throughly enjoyed the experience of being in a riad style restaurant. It was a great setting, with great food and very helpful friendly service. The puddings are also to die for. Make sure you try the chocolate cake, it was honestly the best chocolate pudding I think I have ever had in my life, so just for that is it defiantly worth a visit! Great dinner, we would highly recommend! `

“The best meal I've ever had”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 15, 2013

Absolutely loved everything about this place. The decor is amazing, the service was impeccable and the food was delicious. I would go back to Marrakech just to eat here again. Not sure why it's only no. 5 on the list!

Excellent food, excellent service. Pastries not very good but this applies to all Morocco as it is a question of personal taste.
