Description:
From the August 1969 WESTWAYS magazine:

"This restaurant with a French name resides in a Polynesian architectural motif, replete with flaming torches, and serves international cuisine ranging from New York steak, curried crab "Papeete style" or boeuf bourguignon to "fish kebab en brochette." The bar and patio deck face the Shelter Island marina and offer a view of seagoing San Diegans manning their multitudinous watercraft. Dining tables surround an inside dance floor where live music keeps the beat for the footwork every night but Monday."

Anyone have any photos or postcards of this place?

If you look at either end of the (exterior)building you may be able to make out the Tikis.
