“Bakchich Cafe - Escape the Souk Madness”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 16, 2013 via mobile

Had dinner here for 1st time, on strength of other recommendations.
It's a hard place to find, off the Jemma El Fna. Just ask for the 'Cafe de France' on the corner of the Rue, head straight to the end & when you think you've gone wrong, it's on the left.
We're glad we made the effort to find it. Rachid was helpful & friendly. We had mint tea (12 MAD) & chicken tagine, with olives & preserved lemons (with bread, 40 MAD). YUM!
We arrived early, there was one other table, but by the time we left, it was busy.
Service is quick & efficient.
A great place to escape the madness of the souk, with Wi-fi available.

“Good food, great value”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 13, 2013

We ate her several times during our three days in Marrakech. Two of us were carnivores and one vegetarian, and everyone was satisfied. Being vegetarian in Morocco usually means eating a loot of harira soup (made from tomato pure and tasting like it), Moroccan salads and rather bland vegetarian/berber tagines, but in Baganazzi the food is somewhat more seasoned and there are a bit more salads to choose from.

This is really a lunch or breakfast gem. The food is very reasonably priced (30 dh for a tagine, for instance), the juices are fresh, everything tastes good (and has taste, which is worth quite a lot, considering that moroccan food, especially vegetarian food, has a tendency to be a bit bland), and there is no hassle. The atmosphere is hip and relaxed.

Oh, and it's right next to Jamaa el fna, so it's the perfect lunch place after a long morning of bargaining in the souks.

“Bakchich Cafe”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 25, 2013

After wandering around on our last night in Marrakesh looking for a 'fancy' place that served kefta tagine we finally wandered past Backchich cafe. It was lively and very inviting. The tagine was yummy, and very reasonably priced! And the staff were really nice too. Worth visiting!

“good non touristy spot off the square”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 6, 2013

A nice cosy place for a drink or a snack. We didn't eat there in the end but the service was good. Not much of a view, but reasonably priced and handy location.

“Little lunch gem”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 12, 2012 via mobile

You could easily pass this place by without a second thought but a tagine for less the 3.5 euros and lunch for 2 people at less than 7 euro including drinks wow! Food was good basic fair, service pleasant and excellent value. Watch out for the purring cat though you may want to adopt it!
