I'll second that. Went there after an intolerable wait for drinks on Chill Winston's patio. Jules' prix fixe salad was simple but not plain and the menu offers a choice of salmon or a chunkily marbled rib steak with a few sauce choices. Immensely satisfying with charming and effecient service. It felt like we were supporting a good and honest venture. I have and will continue to recommend it to the guests that I serve.

Gave the Chill Winston patio a second try in the evening. Joiners at our table were not offered bevvies for twenty minutes. As we were pressed for time we ditched Winston again and the friendly staff squeezed us in at Jules.

I must say though that our first experience at CW was excellent and they may have been short-staffed as it was the first day of sun in a coupla weeks.

I had that morel risotto the other night as a part of a 5-course dinner, and that was the best dish of the evening. A bit "soupier" than I was used to (just think of it as more mushroomy broth), but the flavours were outstanding.

I also had the rainbow trout, which while nicely cooked, seemed to be lacking an element. It came with cooked dandelion greens and hazelnuts - maybe a brightening acid would have lifted it up a bit.

But the risotto, seriously good.
