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.

“How can this be #2 restaurant in Marrakech?!”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 20, 2013 via mobile

Where to begin? Other reviews point out the slow and incompetent service and the almost panic-ridden waiters and our experience was similar. The food was average, for example the 'green tagliatelle' was white tagliatelle with sliced peppers on the side and the prawn starter with cep cream was a filo pastry filled with thick mushroom soup. The waiter got our orders wrong, including the wine, leading to additional delay and the table next to ours waited fully 30 minutes for their main course. Having decided we had had enough and would skip desert we waited fully 15 minutes for the bill to arrive during which stodgy failed attempts at petit fours were delivered that tasted uncooked. Perhaps we caught them on a bad night but this place is an overpriced waste of time if all diners get the same experience we did. Avoid.

“Wonderful place to eat”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 19, 2013

We booked this restaurant before we flew to Marrakech, but it was the best decision. It can be very difficult for my parents to find a nice place to eat, as both me and my sister are fussy teenagers. But this menu had a range of everything, from the traditional dishes to basic pasta dishes, that are equally amazing.
We were given appetizers that were nice. The pudding, well, AMAZING!!!!
I had the chocolate pudding, it was beautiful, and I can't stress how pleased I was with the staff and the design of the restaurant.

“Gem of Marrakech”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 19, 2013

One of my favourite restaurants in Marrakech. Offering a truly authentic Moroccan menu (along with Italian), it was delicious! The service was absolutely outstanding and the atmosphere completely romantic. Hidden between the cobble streets lies this amazing restaurant, I recommend the lamb!

“A wonderful evening!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 18, 2013

Since opening we have become regular customers of Pepe Nero where we had dinner several times, and we have always been extremely pleased with both the level of its excellent cuisine and the quality of the service, professional and friendly and with the prices very fair. Last week on the occasion of the celebration of a friend's birthday , they have outdone themselves .... The mechoiu lamb ... to die for ... To finish a delicious birthday cake complimentary offered by the Chef! A wonderful evening!
