Review on The Little Chartroom

The Little Chartroom is a delightful neighbourhood bistro located on Albert Place at the top end of Edinburgh's Leith Walk. It's the debut restaurant from husband and wife team Roberta Hall-McCarron and Shaun McCarron, who both climbed the culinary ladder under acclaimed chef Tom Kitchen, where Roberta was head Chef at Castle Terrace and Shaun rose through the ranks to become Restaurant Manager.

It's a relaxed unfussy kind of place with a light and airy décor, with interiors created by Studio Niro to reflect Roberta's love of sailing. Decked out in nautical marine blue and pale cream with brass hardware, walls are decorated with bespoke artwork from old shipping chart designed by Roberta's mum. Overlooked by an open kitchen, the dining room seats just 18 guests including four bar stools.

Modern ideas abound on the concise menu that showcases British and French cuisine along the lines of octopus, Heritage tomatoes and burr chervil or ox tongue, beef bavette and peas among the starters. When it comes to the main event there's stuffed lamb saddle, crispy kidney, black garlic, apricot, bitter leaves, smoked yoghurt and almonds or from the sea wild sea trout, greens, smoked aubergine puree, shellfish and brown butter sauce. Desserts are a highlight and are not to be missed, witness chocolate and raspberry delice or Elderflower posset, oat cookie and strawberries.
