Description: Come discover an instinctive yet mastered cuisine, which allows Bordier butters to express themselves with seasonal products. The 'Bistro Autour du Beurre' offers you ideas full of freshness. Our Chef Steve Delamaire cooks with local fishing and market products which features Bordier butters. A unique and historic place, mixing raw, design and second-hand materials. You can privatize the 'Bistro' with a menu discussed with the Chef, or organize a lively 'wine-cheese reception' (40 covers seated, 55 standing).

We were in Saint Malo today and wanted to try something more funky and less touristic than the standard large bistrots (some of which are very nice, but just not what we felt like). And while looking, went to buy butter at Bordier's (La Maison du Beurre - simply the best butter in the world) and discovered they've opened a small (23 covers) bistrot next to the shop. Truly wonderful - standard bistrot fare, well prepared, in a very pleasant setting. Excellent wines. A very welcome change (and certainly not the last time we'll visit). Just one thing to watch out for : you are offered a choice of 8 Bordier butters with your meal. And it's (for us, at least) impossible not to try all eight - and then eat a bit more of the three or four favourites. I underline that the presence of the butter is not in the dishes : simple lack of self control on our part.

We eat when we travel not only because we have to, but because it gives us opportunity to sample what is unique about the local cuisine - this restaurant gives you the chance to do exactly that and does it very well. I had read that in addition to mussels and oysters, Brittany was known for its butter, but I had no idea that there would be an entire shop, museum and restaurant devoted to Breton butter (and other dairy) in St. Malo, when I stumbled upon this associated museum, shop and restaurant. After touring the museum outlining the thousands of years of butter's history on our tables (it was actually very well done, in excellent English too) and taking in the magnificent cheeses and dairy products of the shop, I walked next door to the Bistro. Here you get to taste many of the unique products the shop is selling. There was a fixed price lunch menu available including (1) delicious bread with a spread of seven(!) different unique Breton butters (see picture attached) any one of which would have been worth talking about, (2) a spreadable pate of sorts the makeup of which i was uncertain but the taste of which was superb, (3) an excellent cheese platter with all manner of local cheeses I had not had before and (4) a tasty desert ice with kiwis in it. The service was excellent - I was quickly and efficiently tended to. I travel a lot and eat out a lot and still I came away from this with a smile and a sense that I did something uniquely local,
