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.

Found this restaurant trough Tripadvisor and we decided to try it. The italian food menu was excellent because i ont like italian food but i love the food fom this restaurant. My partner had the chicken Tajine and it was okay because we dont really like Tajin, if you just want to try Tajine, go to jamaa el fna where you can try Tajine with less pice. The ambiance is superb,, really good to have a romntic dinner.

The food was actually quite good. We had the Harira Soup for first with bread. The soup was very large (good!) but a little watery for my taste (but I guess it is supposed to be like that). The bread was freshly made there and tasted very good. For mains we had the courgette ravioli which was made with fresh homemade pasta and a tajine. The pasta was very good but the tajine was average. Probably wouldn't have ordered the tajine with hindsight but as this was our first night in Morocco, we didn't know better...

Be aware that they open for food at 7.30pm which is a bit unusual...

The menu was only in French, so we had to get them to translate each dish line by line... it's not hugely difficult for them to print English ones (its already translated on their website!)

The cost is expensive in Moroccan terms, but reasonably priced for us as we're used to paying London restaurant prices.

So why am I giving this a 3* review? Well, once we had finished our food and we wanted the bill so we could leave quickly (as we had to leave our Riad at 7am the following morning for an excursion), they took 30-40 mins to bring our bill. We had to ask for it 5 times. If it weren't for this I'd be giving 4*.

Excellent excellent experience. Felt like we was royalty from start to finish. I guess prices are on the high side compared to other places but this is a really special experience. The restaurant looks like it might have been hard to find in time gone by the reviews left by others but it now has signs pointing the way. Very helpful. We had no problem at all finding it. Every one and everything was perfect.

This place is a bit hard to find, but worth it. Don;t be fooled by the kids who wait at the top of the street to "guide" you down the ally that can only lead to Pepe Nero. They will want money for following you and then claim that they showed you the way.
After you lose the kids, you enter a beautiful calm oasis of warm and friendly service and beautiful food. We opted for the Italian menu after having a lot of tagines over the previous days. The carpaccio was to die for, both salmon and beef and the steak was delicious. The gave us a GIANT cake to help us celebrate our anniversary. Now, this is not "authentic" in it's atmosphere or approach, but after feeling a bit like a prodded and poked camel for a few days it was nice to relax and be looked after.

We spent here a fantastic birthday dinner : The place is stunning, romantic, the service very good and the Italian food just perfect. Not too diffifult to find if you follow the directions provided at the moment of booking. Do not listen to the boys on the road that want to take you to another restaurant.
They complimentary offered a good birthday cake at the end of the dinner and a flute of prosecco at the arrival. Not expensive for the quality.
