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.

“Charming restaurant with exceptional service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 8, 2013

We read the reviews for Pepe Nero and set out to find out for ourselves if it lived up to the hype. We arrived in a beautiful Riad a few blocks off of the busy road and covered market. We had no reservation but were shown a table next to their gorgeous pool to enjoy a bottle of reasonably priced wine. Once a table was ready we were shown into the beautiful courtyard. They have two menus...an Italian menu and a Morrocan menu. We ate off of the morrocan menu and loved our lamb shoulder and morrocan soups. We saw many of the other items on tables around us and I would have been happy with every single dish I saw. Beautiful and incredible value for the food and experience.

“Everything is beyond expectations!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 8, 2013

Be original after so many enthusiastic reviews is difficult. The evening spent in this ristorante was the most beautiful moment of our holiday in Marrakech: Everything is beyond expectations. In a beautiful riad with splendid decorations, fountains full of roses soft lighting, nice background music... a magical atmosphere, with impeccable service of young smiling waiters, is served both Italian and Moroccan cuisine, really of high level for taste, freshness and presentation.
Great tagliatelle, exquisite pastilla, and delicious cassata!
Last; but not for importance, a very reasonable bill.

“Superb fusion”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 7, 2013

Ambience is top, very nice riad, make sure you reserve a table in the patio. Food is excellent from A-Z, well done, good ingredience quality, nicely seasoned. The service is attentive and does a good job. Absolutely worth it.

“Disappointing - only a good execution of simple food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 7, 2013

Limited options for vegetarians and must book well in advance. We were expecting an authentic Moroccan/Mediterranean dining experience yet found actually the dated decor and overly eager staff to be a bit overpowering. Food was relish, but waiting an hour between each courses builds an expectation that could not be lived up to. Hard to find, ask someone (we came through the kitchen as a local boy showed us the way!)

“oasis”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 6, 2013

the walk from the main square is well worth while to discover this tranquil oasis of a restaurant.

very good food, excellent service, nice touches in a lovely building at a (for us) reasonable price.

would like to have found it earlier in our stay.
