Tisa's Barefoot Bar

  • Main coastal road
  • Alega Beach

Fodor's Review

This ultra-casual beach bar, restaurant, and B&B is something of an institution in American Samoa.

Opened by Tisa in 1989, it was washed away in Cyclone Val in 1991 but rebuilt not long after. The restaurant, open till 7 pm weekdays and trading later on weekends, specializes in locally grown fruits, vegetables, and fresh-caught seafood served in decorative palm fronds. There's no set menu—the chef cooks whatever is fresh that day. Host Tisa and bartender "Candyman"

are warm and welcoming and have created a cool, local hangout that feels more than a little Gilligan's Island. An umu (food cooked underground) is served every Wednesday night; the beers are cold all the time. It's at Alega Beach, about 4 miles from Pago Pago, and is easily reached by local bus.
