A great- stop during our Paris walking tour to discover this amazing food concept. Gourmet recipes created by stared chefs coming in glass containers. All the produce are organic and the dishes very creative. Nice and cheap for good quality.

The sad truth about many, if not most, Parisian restaurants, is that they are, basically, fast-food joints whose dishes are prepared off-site by some wholesaler, and then reheated or micowaved for your dining pleasure, or non-pleasure as the case may be. This places attempts to make a virtue out of necessity -- there's no attempt to fool you into thinking... More

We really enjoyed our meals at Boco while we were in Paris, so much so, that we ate in the restaurant on Monday, then returned Tuesday for a meal to go and also bought a cookbook. The employees were very friendly and even remembered us on our 2nd visit. I really wish the recipe for the soup I ate was... More

The location, atmosphere and the concept is pretty cool. Perfect place where to have a quick meal while discovering and enjoying Paris. It's a little cheaper and a lot quicker than having a meal at a restaurant.

The idea of the founder, Vincent Ferniot who is a gastronomic reviewer is interesting and good: to ask a number of chefs to create recipes of dishes that will be cooked and sold in glass container, ready to be cooked in a microwave oven. The problem is that the taste is not always as good as one would expect.

Liked the concept and approach. Organic and interesting selection. It is quick and moderately priced. I would personally have liked some of the dishes a bit more seasonned. Good and friendly service. Worth trying.

An “experiment” being run by a group of Michelin starred chefs, this is a unique concept, where you pick from a number of ready-to-eat meals in jars (and deserts and drinks) stacked on a shelf, bring them to the cashier to pay and have them heated and served to your table. There were quite a few vegetarian options (meticulously labelled... More

For those that are like myself- perpetually late for the Parisian lunch times- this was a great find. Not a fan of eating fast food/croissants on the go, this place offers organic, freshly made food, based on recipes of Michelin-starred chefs (if I understood the last part correctly). It is OPEN between the hours of 2pm and 6:30pm, when your... More
