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 really cosy venue in a riad with a chilled out atmosphere. They make a fuss of you and bring free bubbly and free amuse bouche while you choose your wine. There is a really good selection of starters and all the mains look amazing. The steak is incredible and beautifully delicate how they serve it. Well worth a visit (or 2) and very reasonable prices considering the quality of the food. HIGHLY RECOMMEND! When we return to Marrakech we'll be coming back here for sure.

It's 5 minutes walk from the El Fna square and relatively easy to find although the streets do go down to about 4 feet wide - local will constantly try to direct you but you don't need their help unless you want to pay.

Very lovely restaurant with romantic and luxurious atmosphere in the Medina, quite easy to find thanks to the signed post from the main square. A perfect place for an informal and relaxing dining with your partner or friends. Very good service from the friendly staff. Really impressive food: We tried both the Italian and Moroccan menus: The risotto was perfect and the lamb delicious. The suggested Moroccan wine was a pleasant surprise not dear for the quality. I suggest to book in advance otherwise you will risk not finding a table. I’m pleased for this discovery that since my arrival in Marrakesh can certainly be qualified so far as the best restaurant of the red city and with fair prices for the excellent quality food and service. Try it and you will share my opinion.

We had two meals during our stay and both were very good in the beautiful surroundings of this traditional Riyad.

It was a very nice looking restaurant, but very hard to find, in the middle of old town and off the map shown on trip advisor. They got my order wrong, the presentation of the food was absolutely gorgeous but it was over done with too many contrasting flavours.
