This is an amazing place which I hope goes from better to better as the development takes place. They have taken a derelict site and are gradually creating a wonderful arts, accommodation and eatery site. It has not yet fully acquired its niche but the sheer imagination and delight in trying to reach its potential is staggering. We drank (quite... More

We read the reviews & therefore were slightly wary about eating at Apostrophe. However, trying to find somewhere to eat out in Montolieu on some days of the week is a little hit & miss. We persevered & followed the lane down to Apostrophe wondering what we would find. In the event our welcome was warm. The building is very... More

I had to laugh at the previous review. Despite their web site saying they were open from 12.00 all day we turned up,admittedly early, at 18.50 and were told we would have to wait until 19.45 until the chef turned up. We got the impression we were unnecessarily disturbing their quiet slumbers. So we walked up the road and had... More

Just stopping in the area for a few days and this was the first place we came too, not sure if it was open or not at first. Lovely decor inside and as it was only 1.30 in the afternoon not sure what we fancied to eat anyway we decided to have a few tapas. We ordered 5 different tapas... More

We had a drink at Apostrophe on our arrival in Montolieu - and absolutely loved the surroundings. You'd have to travel a long way to find a place so sympathetic to what once were factory buildings - now tumbled down but being lovingly restored piece by piece. That evening they were throwing a late night party and were trying out... More

We choose this restaurant from the reviews, but weren't impressed. We received a friendly welcome from someone as we walked towards the place, but that was it. There was a smoky, fire burning outside and so it wouldn't have been a pleasant experience to eat there. Inside there were one a two people with music playing, which was quite loud... More

Found this during our Summer holiday and had a great meal. Went back one week later and were turned away as the waiter said they couldn't cope with the numbers already booked ...actually I would rather be told this up front instead of waiting for hours to be served. Owner needs to address the serving staff shortage for next season... More

We came across L'Apostrophe by chance when exploring picturesque Montolieu, and between us (four members of a family party) experienced it three times in a period of a few days. It's situated in part of a semi-derelict old linen factory, which is being slowly restored. There's a lot to love - the shabby-chic bohemian decor and atmosphere, the delicious food... More
