The word Tabu is from the Polynesian Tongan people's tongue and means, "Set Apart," which sets the tone for this unparalleled restaurant located in Laguna Beach. When you walk into Tabu Grill, you find yourself in a lush oceanic oasis of blues, exotic purples and aquamarines.

A multiple award recipient, Tabu Grill received Zagat's coveted "Extraordinary to Perfection" score year after yea
