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.

“Courtyard + good, uninintrusive service + quality food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 15, 2014 NEW

C'est magnifique!
Initially hard to find but signs laid by the restaurant in nearby alleys make it easier. Great , atmospheric courtyard setting with potted palms , attentive yet refrained staff.
Menu was mixing Moroccan and Italian. Small starter and red champagne given at no extra cost. Food was served smartly , yet well prepared . Wine affordable too.
Best place we ate during a week of meals!!!

“Nice dinner in nice setting”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 10, 2014

Everything is really nice, food, service, interior. Be aware when you jump out of taxi dont let anyone to lead you to the restaurant. It is just 50 meters walk but guys pretending leading you there will beg for money. They look like they would work there but they are just outsiders beggars.

“Wonderful dining experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 9, 2014

After spending two weeks in morocco we welcomed a change in cuisine from the moroccan food we had been eating, and love. The Italian food was well prepared. The ambiance, service, and wine were excellent. It was the closest we came to a fine dining experience in morocco, including an amuse bouche. Yes, it would have been hard to find if we went by foot. We went by cab and were walked by a boy through alleyways to get to this elegant courtyard dining room in a nice riad. An employee walked us back to our riad after dinner, as there were no cabs in sight.

“Ok / eating off the local menu”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 9, 2014

Very attractive interior , well styled and would be worth 4 star rating. However , could not really rate the food higher than average. To be fair we had been told that the Italian food was better than the local menu but we felt that it was somehow wrong to eat anything other than the local food. The food was nicely presented but lacked real flavour . This meal was our most expensive in Marrakech , costing around £100 for 2 courses for two people .
