This restaurant is conveniently located in downtown Paso. We were there for breakfast, but it seemed they had a pretty good menu for lunch and dinner, also. I had the vegetarian breakfast burrito, which had eggs (egg whites were an option), cheese and thick slices of avocado, in a spinach tortilla wrap. The wrap was very filling, but really delicious....

We were in paso for a couple of days, and our hotel didn't offer breakfast, so we were given a list of places to try. This one was our favourite by far, we had breakfast two consecutive days. The staff were helpful, and the food amazing. There is plenty of parking, and you can sit either inside or outside. This... More

Panolivo Family Bistro is one of my favorite casual eateries in Paso. Owners and chefs Didier and Beatrice serve traditional French family fare with fresh California ingredients, as well as a wide variety of other offerings including many salads, sandwiches, pastas and vegetarian dishes. I love the seafood croustade filled with shrimp, scallops, baby clams and calamari in a creamy... More

This place is a jewel - very casual, fabulous food. We ordered off both the Mediterranean menu and the kids ordered off the standard menu. Everything was healthy, light, and fresh. The service was great. While there was nothing fancy about it, it was one of our best meals out on our recent vacation. If you want fresh, real food,... More

This is a great little place with a lot of choices for meals. I love the bright colored decor. We just had a very light meal here and it was perfect for that

This was my 2nd visit to Panolivo. It was a Wednesday night and a bit slow even at 7pm. There was probably only 5 tables taken, but only one waitress. So things were a bit slooow. The food was just average. Nothing special and the one dessert we shared tasted a bit like it might have been in the case... More

Delicious food, delightful service in a pretty settings; Panolivo was superb. Today we celebrated a milestone birthday in grand style. There were 15 of us and they took great care of us in the back room, which we had to our selves. Great salads, sandwiches and quiches were so tasty, yet the petit fours that were recommended by Didier the... More

We had heard about this place and were so excited to go there. There were 4 of us and none of us were thrilled with our meal. The burger was a preformed frozen patty, the french fries were stale and cold (they were uneatable). The salads were okay but we have had better. The service was okay. Our drinks went... More
