A must do while there!

they offer a very limited menu -- whatever is fresh and on hand. the day we visited there was swordfish with coconut milk sauce, and bangers (New Zealand sausages) with fried plantain. We ordered both and they were both just fabulous! Drank Valima beer and also had their coconut smoothie... read more

We tried to call the restaurant several times but always got an answering machine which said it was open from 11am-7pm. The taxi ride from the main harbor is $40 round trip. When we got there a couple of staff were busy setting up despite the fact it was 1pm. They said they were full for a private party that... More

Open on Sunday when few things are. Very tropical to have a drink in the open air patio on this beautiful beach. Food is good not much selection but tasty. The snorkeling is excellent off Tisa's she'll usually let you go if you buy food and drink otherwise I think she charges a couple of bucks to use the beach.

We visited on 20th Feb. Beer was cold, food was good if expensive for a beach bar. Delightful location. However, the place was dirty and tatty. Obviously great decor/ambience when new but never updated. Flies,yes, and the dog was a nuisance and had been sick on the floor under our table. Toilets barely adequate. Overall not a great experience. They... More

Tisa's is a great place. My colleague and I stopped there for a meal on our way back from Aunu'u Island. The owners are incredibly friendly. No set menu or hours--just show up hungry, and they will take care of you the best they can. Friendly cats and dogs on site as well. The bar is located at a lovely... More

Nice to stop for a beer after a drive around the coast. Did not eat. Limited menu but enough for lunch. Very scenic spot with thatched roofs and interesting beachy decor

Thanksgiving in Pago Pago was not going to include turkey. Our group of 10 decided for fish at Tisa's and we couldn't have been happier. It's rough-hewn Jack Johnson secluded beach vibe was super relaxing and that got better with the pina coladas made using fresh fruit. Wow! Dinner came nicely plated, delicious, and fresh. I've had better meals but... More

The food and drinks were perfect. In addition, the setting is great for meeting people at the long tables where Luau Palusami is served.

We stopped in for drinks here and the bar is situated on the most beautiful beach! We loved the feel of the natual and simple wood and the atmosphere here. You can rent rooms here too and they looked awesome!

This bar is a small piece of paradise. It is situated in a small, private cove, with a lovely sandy beach with pristine sea which is perfect for those who love to snorkel. The fish served to me was caught that day, and tasted like it. It was cooked simply on the grill and served in a palm leaf, so... More
