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.

“Definitely worth it”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 25, 2013

We emailed in advance to book a table and received a very friendly reply to confirm the booking. Later we subsequently had to cancel as our hotel had no hot water! I emailed the restaurant to explain why we had to cancel and again they replied in a friendly tone. This encouraged us to find the restaurant the next day to make another booking. We wanted to find the restaurant in the light as we were a bit nervous about the location as it's up, down and around little alley ways. We met with a gentleman at the door who remembered our email from the previous evening and he was happy to accommodate us for that night. The entrance to the restaurant is calming, traditional and very beautiful. Once seated, we were poured a complimentary glass of champagne by a very friendly waiter who had a great sense of humour. We were made to feel welcome and nothing was too much trouble, The food is beautifully presented, I had the duck but found the meal to be on the small side but other people seemed to have very decent sized meals (maybe they ordered sides). The whole restaurant is in a beautiful setting and is very atmospheric. Definitely worth a visit and the meal was actually the cheapest we had during our four nights in Marrakech. Worth doing a 'dry run' during the day and booking ahead. It is easy to find from the square, look for the big French restaurant on one of the corners (sorry can't remember the name) and follow the signs. If you book ahead by email, they will send you directions. All in all a very worthwhile experience.

“One of the best meals!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 24, 2013

We had one of the best meals we have ever had. The restaurant is gorgeous and the atmosphere very romantic. Hassan the maitre made us feel at home and could not have been nicer. The Moroccan salad and carpaccio as entrees were divine and the ravioli really delicious. The recommended red Moroccan wine was very good and as all meal, not dear for the quality. At the end of the dinner the young Chef came to see us, and we can't thank him and his staff enough for the great meal and making our dinner so very special

“Great experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 23, 2013

This restaurant rates as one of the best in Marrakech and for good reason, the restaurant itself is beautiful (ask for a table next to the fountain), the food is excellent and great service, our waiter only looked after 4 tables all night and was always available. We paid around 70 euros for 2 people and a bottle of wine, by British standards probably about right, a little expensive for Marrakech but there again you only get what you pay for, worth emailing and booking first.

“Fantastic”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 22, 2013

This is one of the best meals I've had in a long time, the food and service were fantastic and in lovely surroundings. It's not in the best location, off the beaten track and down a side road, but once in there could not find fault and if celebrating a birthday or anniversary would really recommend. They have a lovely courtyard with a fountain as well where you can dine.
