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.

“Beautiful restaurant, good food and exceptional service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 15, 2013

We visited the restaurant to see the beautiful restoration and also to have a nice meal on our last night in Morocco. We were not disappointed, the restaurant is indeed beautiful and well restored. The food is good but not exceptional; the service is very exceptional indeed - the waiters wowed us and we hope to return, if only to meet the nice service staff. The Italian dishes were very nice but the Moroccan dishes were quite ordinary. Highly recommended if you are looking to eat good Italian food in a beautiful place in Marrakech. A bit pricey but offers very nice ambiance and reasonable value for the money.

The service is excellent they have eye for detail.

The price/quality for the food is good.
But the food could be a bit approved.

We had a really nice evening.

“Brilliant night!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 13, 2013

We have visited Marrakech 3 times for short breaks and have eaten here each time. It is very nice ambience good food and good service. Yes it is like most places in Marrakech down a windy lane but worth finding and it is signposted. We had a lovely meal served by a charming waiter who was polite but fun. A thoroughly good night.

We had been left 5 minutes walking our way back to the main square when a breathless person tapped me on my shoulder handing me my purse with cash and my bankcard in! The lovely waiter had gone to great effort to find us saving me much stress. Nice side of human nature! Thank you Pepe Nero and staff

“Great room ..... average food”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 11, 2013

Finding Pepe Nero is a bit of an adventure as it is deep in the Medina of Marrakech; though, upon entering you are immediately enveloped into a richly decorated riad. One has high expectations. Alas, the service is very haphazard and the meal very average despite the higher than average prices. Such a pity really ........

“You'd find it hard to beat this place in Marrakech”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 11, 2013

As with just about everywhere in this city extremely hard to locate, taxi is a must. The decor, the service and the food was excellent. As you might expect you do pay a small premium for this, but only small and well worth it. Excellent setting for a quiet romantic meal with good attentive service. Only thing I didn't like was the guy who escorted us to our taxi afterwards wanted a separate tip from that that we had already left in the restaurant.
