Came here on the advice of a friend of a friend. Ordered mixed meat platter, mixed fish platter, grilled sardines and garlic bread. Mixed meat - pork chop had been previously frozen and was tough as leather. Beef was tough. Chicken just ok. Mixed vegetables served with dinner were from a frozen bag and still cold. Boiled potatoes were plain and not spiced. Fish was ok but nothing exciting. Sardines were good. Garlic bread was ok. A bit light on garlic. Would not eat here again. Nice tablecloths, nice ambience. That's about it.

The online translation of picanha is fillet. Beware it’s not accurate. My picanha was tasty but it’s from the back of the bovine and contains a large piece of fat. However the food was generally tasty and the service good.

Stayed here for our first two nights in Madeira. Clean, spacious with a small balcony over looking a small street. No kettle in the room but no problem when I asked for some hot water to make tea in the evening. Polite, friendly, staff. Good position to explore Machico.

We stayed here from 24-31 December on a half board basis. Although parts of the guesthouse are looking a bit tired, the overall 'feel' was good, room sizeable and beds comfortable and everything was spotlessly clean. The proprietor (I think this is the person mentioned) was not unfriendly or totally unsmiling, as some reviewers suggested, but had very limited English - by contrast, Paula, the regular evening waitress in the restaurant, had good English and a nice manner with guests. The half board menu proved a bit monotonous, but it was possible to eat off the a la carte one and receive a discount of 14 euros (the table d'hote menu price). Food was OK but unspecial. Breakfast was adequate, but a toaster and more choice of spreads/jams would have been welcome. The guesthouse is in a pedestrianised part of the town, quite close to the beach. Apart from noisy water pipes with someone taking an early bath on one occasion, and a group of exuberant Italians who arrived late one evening (wooden and tiled floors reflect the noise!), it was quiet in the evenings. We met several guests fleeing the miserable 'Don Pedro' chain hotel favoured by the holiday companies to eat and hang out at the Amparo!

I have not stayed at this hotel, but we ate in the restaurant regularly. Food very good, fresh, especially seafood and local specialties. The restaurant was very pleasant, although I chose the table outside the most. I recommend.
