Had lunch with family at LMH and we enjoyed both food and service. The staff is very professional and the menu excellent. The food presentation was also very good. The only small reproach would be the coffee which for such a classy restaurant I would...More

We had a very good evening meal at this restaurant recommended by our Chambre d'Hote owner. It was expensive - all restaurants are now in France with the current exchange rates.

La mere hamard was a wonderful find thanks to the other reviews on here. The lodging was typically French, simple, clean and well priced. The dining was truly wonderful, a fairly unassuming restaurant with food and wine unmatched by any establishment I've been to. It's...More

We dined here on a weekday evening and it was busy, both with hotel guests (from the Hotellerie de la Mere Hamard) and seemingly quite a few other travellers and tourists. The restaurant has a good choice on both the a la carte and on...More

As so often is the case in France, a relatively modest hotel serves excellent food. I was only able to eat in the hotel once on this visit but was as always pleased with the cuisine. When the weather is good (it wasn't), one can...More

A charming and tranquil dinner in the cozy garden. The owner greeted us with a warm smile. The food was fresh and truly delicious. I recommend the langoustine salad and the pigeon. Hats off to the great Chef! The owner paired our dinner with a...More

Wonderful food, beautifully presented. Classic French cooking. Excellent wine list, especially, of course, of Loire wines.

A few minutes outside Tours, in the Heart of the chateaux of the Loire, La Mère Hamard has made its mark on the village of Semblançay. This house has been here for over a century and has a fascinating history. It is in this place that we suggest you crossing a few hours in our company. We could speak to you for a long time in writing about our passion for all which titillates papillae. But we shall not make him: nothing replaces the experience of the plate and that of the glass, which we hope for it will be for your taste. All our products are home-made from fresh products, selected strictly. We attach a particular choice to the origin of products, which we prefer of season and picking. Best Regards, Alice et Olivier Loize.
