We headed here after finding reviews on Trip Advisor. They had a private function on for a group of marines but they were kind enough to let us in for a few drinks. Wonderful spot sitting on the deck over the water. They were tattooing on of the marines whilst we were there in traditional Samoan style. Fascinating. Well worth... More

Regular stop after getting off the plane for the aircrew. We alway's made it to see tisa and Candyman and if you call ahead they'll make you dinner and it's alway fresh and delicious. Naked fridays and hedonism are the rule at Tisa's. Cold beer and good company.

Tisa's Barefoot Bar is in a beautiful location with an authentic island feel to it. As of recently, I discovered she has accommodations for anyone who wants to stay the night to nurse their hangover from their infamous pina coladas made from real coconut or to just enjoy a night of seclusion away from the "hustle and bustle" of the...

I moved to American Samoa in 1994 and lived there while I worked at Starkist for a year. I frequented Tisa's many times and if you are passing through the island then you have to go and experience one of the most friendly places on earth. Yes, like the title says I got an island tattoo ... no I do... More

We took a taxi from the cruise ship terminal. Walked the beach, swam a bit and sat drinking fresh Pina Colada's and chatting with Candyman and Tisa. Food menu was limited, but delicious and fresh.

If you are on the island, a visit to Tisa's is a must. It is right on the beach and the food is great.

Went to Samoan umu at Tisa's and it was a most wonderful and informative experience. The food was excellent as well. I highly recommend it. Also the world famous Tattoo festival is here annually as well. Well worth the trip. Tisa is also the best!

Tisa's is a kick, although it was slow the day we were there because no cruise ship was in port. WARNING: if you are going to Pago Pago on a day trip from Apia (using Polynesian Airlines), as we did, do NOT rent from Avis at the airport! They are exorbitant ($177 for six hours rental) and then, as other... More

Great little spot right on the water. Straight out of the blue lagoon. Great place to relax by the sea and down a couple cold ones.

Sitting some distance out of Pago Pago town, this is a definite highlight of American Samoa. We took a local bus for $1.50 and were dropped off along the road across from this wonderful location on the water. They claim the coldest beer in Pago Pago, and we believe them. The view and atmosphere is amazing. Candyman and Tisa are... More
