We went to Sunset Way last night and ended up sitting down at Jules Verne. The first thing that struck us was that they were under-staffed: there were only two waiters, which was clearly not enough for a place with so many tables. It took them a while before they were able to take our order. That aside, the service was outstanding. Both waiters were very friendly and efficient.
We were also pleasantly surprised to notice that the place has a quite good selection of Belgian beers (the best beers in the world come from Belgium), so we both had an Orval. We ordered a seafood platter (28$) and a Greek farmer's salad w/ olives and feta cheese (21). These are dishes that are hard to mess up, but still the quality was definitely good. The size of the dishes was good. The seafood was fresh and very nicely fried with good olive oil. The salad was varied, with an excellent vinaigrette which was not overwhelming. Perhaps I would have liked a few more olives, and a bit less onion, but apart from that it was excellent. We asked for some extra bread, which was not on the menu but nevertheless served with some good butter for only 2$ surcharche. We had 3 beers amongst the two of us, and we spent 90$. Not really cheap, but good value.
