It represents the pinnacle of The Brando’s dining experiences, ensuring a symphony of taste that dances across the senses, orchestrated like the unfolding plot of a classic novel.

Beachside food and drink in Marlon Brando’s original bar
Prior to The Brando’s conception, the original social hub, Bob’s Bar, took root in this slice of paradise. The legacy of the locale is rich with the lore of Marlon’s daily visits, where cocktails were crafted to his liking.
Today, this beachside tribute continues to serve South Pacific culinary delights inspired by the tales told in Marlon’s films. It is a place where patrons are encouraged to savor a signature cocktail, the ‘Dirty Old Bob,’ and raise their glasses in a tribute to the timeless spirit of Tetiaroa.
