Backshish is Moroccan slang for the small courtesy payments (not major bribes) that help ease every day life in Morocco. The wittily named Backshish Cafe is a newly opened eatery conveniently located at the top of Riad Zitoun street very near to our Riad Dar Habiba.
Just a few steps from the main square – take the street between Cafe France and the Restaurant Marrakchi this little cafe is well worth the detour. On offer are a good selection of Moroccan standard dishes at reasonable prices. Service is fast and friendly.
Central Marrakech has seen a big increase in recent years inexpensive cafe restaurants, this is deservedly one of the most popular. We also like the Henna Cafe which is run by an ”association culturelle’ which we helped to found with a charitable mission to give back to the local community.
