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.

This was our first family Chrsitams abroad . we were 7 adults . Ppepe Nero was perfect , wonderful service ina winderful setting . The food was very good rather than outstanding . But as an overall dining experince we loved it .
It is well signposted from the Cafe de France on the main square . Don't allow yourself to be guided it is not needed for the 10 min gentle stroll throught he Medina . Alternatively a taxi will drop you within 75m of the front door but you do need the directions in French which the restaurant will provde .
For us it was a very memeorable Christmas lunch with not a Brussel sprout in sight .

We went as a group of 6 including 2 children. Location was a bit tricky for the taxi driver, but a beautiful riad with gardens. We were made most welcome and given a warm corner table in the Morrocan lounge. The service was attentive and friendly without being cloying. There was a choice of menus, Italian and Morrocan. An amuse-bouche of tomato concasse with basil was delicious as was the welcome glass of prosecco. The starters of king prawn with ceps, the carpaccio of veal, the chef's salad were all beautifully presented, light and delicious. The guinea fowl ravioli were really well made, again light and with a good sauce. The rolled shoulder of lamb was beautifully cooked and served with very nice steamed, turned vegetables, the duck was also good and the dorade with endive cooked perfectly. Desserts were good, chocolate with creme anglaise and a lemon and strawberry delice. Bill was 220 euros for 6 including 2 bottles of wine, soft drinks and service tip. A very pleasant Christmas afternoon, thank you.

We visited this after reading the reviews. First the bad bit, as reported it is difficult to find and involves going through some streets you probably wouldn't visit! Having said this taxi's do not cost much so this is probably a better option. A big burly guy met us at teh little alley and escorted us to the restaurant. The place itself if stunning inside and the food and service was as good as any top class restuarant. We even received a free glass of prosecco with our meal. Best restaurant we visited in Marrakech.

Though expensive bt worth it.

Decided we needed a break from tajines on our 6th day in Morocco, went on tripadvisor and found this place. This place is quite easy to get to if you follow the sign to the left of Cafe de France, even if it seems to lead you down a dodgy alley. We went on a Monday for lunch, and found out that the restaurant do not serve on Mondays, but the lovely people at the riad where the restaurant's located served us orange juice and told us to just enjoy the place for awhile. We decided to try out luck again the next day and this time we managed to dine at the restaurant! I ordered the seafood tagliatelle and it was delicious. It was 130 dirhams, drinks was 20 dh for a coke, which is pricey by moroccan standards but definitely worth it for the food and the atmosphere of the place.
