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.

This restaurant is located in a beautiful riad and produced the most excellent food.

We totally enjoyed both the dining experience and the food - well done!

“Good food in a beautiful riad”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 8, 2014

The restaurant is well signed from Djemaa el Fna and is about 10 mins' walk from there. It's a riad with a beautiful interior. The service was pleasant and efficient, and the food good and fairly priced. My husband was disappointed that they'd run out of Casablanca beer, otherwise we recommend Pepe Nero. I booked two days in advance for a Thurs night in mid May but it didn't seem necessary as it wasn't full.

“Great food in a beautiful Riad”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 7, 2014

Two separate menus offered make this a perfect place to dine for those apprehensive about Moroccan cuisine. Choose from the Moroccan menu or the Italian menu... can't decide? You can mix and match from both. Perfect is you're traveling with children.

“Expensive but worth it - great food, friendly service, excellent ambience!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 5, 2014

Pepe Nero is set in a beautiful and spacious 'riad', and serves both Moroccan and Italian cuisines. We enjoyed the Italian dishes, as a welcome break from the Moroccan food. The staff was welcoming, and went out of their way to make us comfortable.
