Awesome Mexican food tucked away down a side street in Paris. Well worth the trip! The family had quesadillas and burritos and there were no left overs. Great taste to everything, and we warmly recommend the red salsa!

Bocamexa is situated on a very lively street in the Latin quarter of Paris. The area has a great feel about it, the restaurant is quite small and does do takeout. The food is similar in theme to Chipotle or Benitos Hat with a variety of meats, sauces to spread on your Taco, burritos or nachos. Food was really nice... More

We were looking for vegie food on the street and went to many places before this, but had difficulty in explaining the people behind the counter. Probably because of our accent. We didnt had as much problem with the people at Boca Mexa. They more or less understood very quickly that we wanted only vegie food and suggested the food... More

I went there with a Mexican friend of mine who said that the sauces and also some of the beverages were authentic Mexican which I think is a great thing. The place was busy when we arrived but nevertheless we got our food relatively quick. The burritos are average, nothin to complain about but rather boring taste. Nothing that really... More

The best burrito I've had in Paris! It isn't cheap (€9.40 for a chicken burrito), but it's delicious! Chicken is tender and tasty, sauces are also good. We got the Chipotle sauce in our burritos and it was great!

This is the 4th Mexican place I am eating at in Paris and it's my favourite. Very well priced, generous quantity of toppings and really tasty food. I had the tacos and burritos. Love this place. Do visit

Went here for a lunch time burrito. I had a chorizo burrito and my girlfriend had a vegetarian one. The staff were great. Friendly and jovial and as someone who only speaks a little French, it was really easy to order. The burritos were full of flavour and very filling. I've eaten Mexican all over the world and used to... More

9€ for tortia with beef, mushrooms, cheese, rice and been. Its not the cheapest dish (near by there's good pizza for almost half price) but something you can live with as long as it taste very good - In this case it did taste very good. Good choise if you are rush with times...and ohhhh yeah - also friendly service.

Staying in Quartier Latin

Neighbourhood Profile
Quartier Latin
The Latin Quarter bursts with intellectual life, architectural splendour and ongoing merriment. The small streets are filled with classical buildings, student bars and lively eateries while the squares are dominated by historic monuments. The area is defined by the 800-year-old Sorbonne University, where Latin once prevailed, and is famous for the Pantheon which celebrates the great men and women of France. During the day students rush from classes to the library and intellectuals people watch from the terraced cafés. As night time falls the surrounding establishments fill up and the merriment really begins. The liveliest parts are around Rue Mouffetard, lined with crêperies and international street food eateries, and Place de la Contrescarpe characterised by terraced brasseries, this neighbourhood provides real nourishment for the mind, belly, and soul.
