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.

Thank you for your post, we're sincerely happy that you liked our restaurant. You're right, we remain moderate in the seasoning of the dishes as some guests are sensitive to salt, pepper and other spices. But we will take your opinion into consideration and try to ensure that each and every boco is as tasty as it should be. Hope... More

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

The best Implementation I have seen so far of Tasty, old fashioned Dishes with a Creative Modern Touch to it, presented on shelves with a possibility to take away. Great Concept: great Fremch Chefs create signature Dishes, served in glass Pots. I loved: Tomato & Selery Tiramisu, Omelette with Mushrooms, Duck on Polenta... Worth a Visit!

The food is fresh and the concept is trendy: eating food conceived by great chefs. However, I wasn' t too impressed by the food. We tried 5 different dishes and only one of them was nice. Very small portions for high prices. You pay the bread per slice and the desserts are nothing more than cookies and super tiny portions... More

I was invited here by a French friend who is enthusiastic about the fact that the dishes on offer are created by 3 star Michelin chefs and that everything is organic, so I had high expectations. While it is on the nice end of fast food places, the portions aren’t very large although with just a starter and main dish,... More
