Great place for food and relaxation

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... read more

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

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

Traveled with a co-worker to visit the Starkist Tuna factory and fishing vessels in Pago Pago in 2009. It was "The" spot on that end of the island. All of the memorabilia from the various vessels that visited over the years really add to the experience. My only regret was not visiting during the tattoo festival.

Wednesday nights are umu nights for $40, worth it if you have never seen one before. Food was tasty, as were the drinks, but each pina colada with "fresh coconut cream" was $10, but strong. Went another day for drinks in the afternoon on a Friday. Wasn't busy and a beautiful spot for palagi's to happy hour.
