Spent most of a day at Tisa's Barefoot Bar. About a half hour drive. You can flag one of the open air buses down in Pago Pago and get them to take you there and back for about $20. This is a must stop for a true island experience. Candyman built, owns and runs the place. He'll tell you stories... More

I was lucky enough to stumble across this beach side oasis while on the island for work. Being from Boston and not having tropical views like this definitel made me cherish the views. Soaking up the sun and surf from the ocean side deck with a beer in my hand was one of the most relaxing experiences of my life.... More

My wife and I attended the Tisa’s Barefoot Bar on 22 April 2017. We didn’t have a reservation and we were directed to the private beach until their previous bookings were completed. We arrived at approx. 10.30am and went swimming and snorkeling until 1pm. All I can say is that the Candyman was great and the staff great in fact... More

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!
