“Cinnamon's at the 'Ilikai is a great casual dine in experience. The offer great food and great prices. The food are unique one-of-a-kind yumminess! It is locally owned and run by a wonderful local Hawaiian ohana. They are well known in the islands and abroad. They have restaurants located in Las Vegas and Japan, as well. If you want to plan a nice evening out, we recommend dining in at the 'Ilikai on a Friday evening, so that you can watch the firework show on the outside balcony or out on the beach. ”
