“Good Takeaway”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 18, 2014 via mobile

Went in around 10pm to grab some Mexican on the way home, had a selection, tacos, burrito and quesadilla and was not disappointed. Reasonable price and authentic

“Reasonable Mexican food in a good location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 12, 2014 via mobile

Rue Mouffetard is a wonderful street for browsing and experiencing the Parisian local life. This restaurant is a good place for a quick bite to eat, inexpensive Mexican food with some seating. It can get busy, especially in the evenings and at weekends.

“Unfriendly Server”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 9, 2014

I went to Bocmexa with a couple of friends, we didn't have any big expectations as we just wanted a snack.

First the positives; the food was nice! I'm not a expert in Mexican food but i was happy with it. The speed from order to sit down was great too.

The Negativce However, the girl behind the counter clearly didn't want to be there and had little patience to explain to a novice. All in all, I tried and tasted but will go elsewhere in the future.

in conclusion, an experience spoilt by the waitress

“chronic excuse for a mexican”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 23, 2014 via mobile

We stopped by here after a long day of walking around Paris as we were staying nearby. We enjoy Mexican food a great deal and know what constitutes decent Mexican cuisine (albeit the European interpretation rather than the true flavours we've experienced in Mexico itself). This place absolutely fails at creating anything vaguely Mexican flavoured, European style or otherwise. I opted for a chicken quesadilla and it was like a mild chicken tikka situation you'd expect to find in a poor Indian restaurant. It was also hideously soggy by the time we'd walked the two minutes home. If you offer takeaway food, package it properly so it doesn't all mush together into one big lump. Definitely do not make a special trip here, there are many other superior restaurants in the area. I've given it a two rather than a one as it offers some decent vegetarian options which can often be lacking in Paris.

“Fantastic!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 23, 2014

If you love Mexican food, this is definitely a restaurant to visit. For 8 euros you can have a real burrito which is fairy big. Will definitely come here again.
