Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

On our trip to Sao Migel, this restaurant was one of our best experiences. The owners treat you like family. The food is fresh and delicious. I still crave their pineapple dessert! Everything from start to finish made us feel like we were locals enjoying the best meal out on a date night instead of tourists. I only wish we had discovered this gem earlier in our trip because we would have visited more than once.

During our 4.5 h stop on Sao Miguel we landed in Sonia's restaurant "Gastronomo" and were simply thrilled just right from the beginning. She welcomed us very warmly and what followed, was a real explosion of taste from the appetizer to the dessert. A delicious cheese with wonderful, homemade pineapple compote, fish prepared in Sonia's way and tenderly fried tuna... The pineapple mousse for dessert was also an absolute dream and is a secret receipt by Sonia. I should also mention the wonderful wine that the waiter recommended. First we wanted to drink two glasses, but then we had to drink the whole bottle because the wine was just too good! This restaurant should be visited by everyone who is in the mood for great food and wants to be entertained at the same time. We will definitely come again! :-)

Service: Incredible. Food: Wonderful. Worth it? Absolutely. Even as an American, I've been to several European restaurants and have a general idea about the expectations for service. Here, our server truly went above and beyond. Not only did he make a truly thoughtful recommendation for our entrée, but he spent time chatting with us, in English, and thoroughly answered all of our questions. Everything came out exactly as he described and was amazingly delicious. He even offered us some local liquors at the end of the meal, which was completely unnecessary but very much appreciated. It was obvious to my husband and I that this restaurant cares about it's customers and wants to ensure that everyone, tourist or local, has a good experience. As a tourist, I especially recommend this restaurant, particularly if you want very fresh and local seafood, as they do an excellent job. I cannot say enough nice things about this restaurant and hope prospective customers value the many positive reviews, like mine, over the few negative reviews that clearly show the writer did not understand restaurant etiquette in Europe.

During a recent visit to Sao Miguel, we had booked a table for 7pm at this restaurant as we heard it was good. We showed up at 6:55pm but the place was boarded up! We were about to walk away but heard the door opening and the curtains being lifted so apparently the restaurant opens right at 7pm! Don't be deterred, it's a tasty and conveniently located place just outside of Punta Delgaga, walking distance from the Azor hotel. The staff brought over a tub of ice showcasing the fresh catch of the day, and we hand picked the fish we wanted for our meal. We also ordered the Azorean garlic-and-butter limpets, which were tasty as a perfect appetizer. The staff was friendly and conversational, making our meal pleasant during the course of the evening. They even gave us recommendations of other places to eat on the island since we expressed interest in trying different towns for different meals!

This was the best meal we ate in our 2 weeks in the Azores. It doesn’t look like much from the outside, but inside the restaurant is very warm and welcoming. The service was 5-star - the mother son duo who run it are very passionate about sharing their food with you and knowledgeable about the produce, talking you through the wonderful local wine list and special fish offers. For us the highlight was the grilled tuna, which was cooked to perfection when we ordered it rare, and the trigger fish, which was beautifully light and flaky on the inside and fried in a delicious batter, not greasy at all as sometimes fried fish can be. Although it is tempting to fill yourself up on fish, save room for the home-made desserts. The pineapple mousse was exquisite! Some of the other reviews have mentioned the prices being quite high, and although we didn’t order the whole fresh fish of the day which might have been a bit more pricey, the other fish specials were comparable to other restaurants and absolutely worth the quality for the food and the experience. If I come back to the area, I know where I will be heading for dinner. December 2022

This restaurant is absolutely recommendable. We went there four times during our two-week holiday because it was simply so delicious! We tried both fish and meat and everything was always well cooked and very tasty. Especially good were the chicken wings and the octopus salad. We have never eaten both so well. Apart from the delicious food we liked the ambience very much. The restaurant is very nice and you feel comfortable right away. All the staff are very friendly and we immediately felt warmly welcomed. All in all we can say: if you are on holiday in São Miguel, you have to Go to this restaurant. Many thanks to the team we will be back!

Our hotel concierge recommended this restaurant for its fresh fish menu. Easy walking distance, just past the casino along the waterfront. The young owner/chef is a native of Porto Delgado, quite friendly and physically present in the main eating area. We each had a salad and some local fresh fish, and some local wine. Very good fish and salad; local wine not so much. Shared dessert was freshly made and quite good. Toal cost of the meal was about 28 euros. Reservations are said to be important for this restaurant, but on the Tuesday night we went, it wasn't full.

The place From outside looks really bad, almost does not seems a restaurant, the interior are cheap and the Tv is a small 14inch for a 12 meters room... need an improvement. In particular the outside. Food Fish is fresh, dishes in the menú are fairly priced and convincing, the place deserves his podium as #2 in ponta delgada. No vegetarian options or vegetables available. Service The people here are super friendly, helpful and wanna really be sure your experience is fine. I want to address the great service of the male waiter with curly hairs and glasses, he run the extra mile for us. Two people 65eur with fish, two extra dishes and wine. No time for pics I was busy to eat

A great fish restaurant needs two things. Extremely fresh fish and knowing how to cook it. If you understand that, this is your place. We had Lapas, a whole grilled rockfish, a really good cream of carrot soup, fresh bread, pineapple mousse, and cheesecake. I have had Lapas before, but never anywhere near this good. Be sure you order bread unless you want to drink the juices from a spoon. The fish was perfection on a plate. Came with potatoes, sweet potato, veg, all also great. This was washed down with a saline and flavorful white wine from Pico. Desserts are Azores versions. Not a French mousse and not a NY cheesecake. Pineapple mousse is intensely pineappley, and firm. Cheesecake is similar to a panna cotta, with berry topping. We are here the rest of the week, and are definitely coming back

An intense gastronomical experience of local flavors. We had octopus, tuna, and parrotfish superbly prepared which came along with various vegetables. The fish was fresh, and cooked in simple but tasty way. The dessert (passion fruit cheesecake) was super tasty as well. An applause to the cook, and to Sonia, the perfect host! Definitely worth trying!

Seldom, if ever, have I ever been in a place like this. If there was ever a restaurant that could take you out of your day and send you into food heaven, sparked by delicious service, this is it. From first smile, to last goodbye, this was a memorable experience. The food? We don’t deserve this food. This is for kings! The service? Oh my God, that’s not service, this is warm friendship welcoming me to my gastronomical home! The people? Every single one of them took care of us as if this was our last meal. Sónia, a queen amongst them all, blessed us beyond belief. A real food princess that treated us without reservation, full of genuine love and care. I don’t care what you’re doing, if you’re in this town, come here right now!

I visited Gastronomo based on the recommendation from a very astute hotel concierge. Having had two other nondescript meals previously, I took her up on her recommendation and was rewarded with the best meal and service I had while in Sao Miguel. Gastronomo was warm and inviting, visited by both locals and tourists alike. Gonçalo (pronounced Gonzalo) took excellent care of me at the restaurant from beginning to end. He helped me find the perfect wine to pair with the house specialty of trigger fish I ordered (a lightly battered and sauteed white fish with no bone) that came with rice and potatoes. My fish was delicious and exactly what I was looking for! There was a wide array of other dishes I wanted to try like their octopus, which looked incredibly tempting, their blood sausage and pineapple (one of their signature dishes), and so much more, but this was not possible as I was a single diner. I topped off my meal with their unique pineapple cake and left delighted, deciding to come back again before I left Ponta Delgada. The food was delicious and unique, but what truly stood out was the service. Gonçalo was on point with all his recommendations, and we had a lovely rapport, so I took the liberty of asking him about certain points of the island I was planning to explore the following day, and he offered to share via text later once the restaurant slowed down. He did just that, and ultimately led me to explore several waterfalls, miradouros (scenic lookouts) and a great hot spring in Furnas. Gonçalo went above and beyond and this goes to show the innate hospitality and kindness of the locals in Ponta Delgada. They are very proud of their beautiful home and Gonçalo is a tremendous ambassador for Gastronomo and the island! Ultimately, my experience was brilliant, and I went back to celebrate my last evening at Gastronomo having their fresh tuna, another meal to rave about! Definitely worth the try, and certainly more than once!

Amazing hosts squeezed us in without a reservation. They were very helpful and made fantastic recommendations for dinner. My wife and I ended up splitting a fresh rockfish which was grilled to perfection. Probably my favorite meal of the week. Make sure you reserve a table in advance. And try the local liquor!

After a couple of days in São Miguel, we decided to try Gastronomo for dinner. We called before going and Gonçalo on the other side was super helpful in explaining the menu and options available. Even before arriving at the restaurant this was looking good! This was a great experience and it all comes down to 2 things: great tasty food (clams, fresh fish fillets with sweet potatoes and tomato rice) and unparalleled service by Goncalo who can manage the entire room with ease, with a friendly smile and always attentive to the clients needs. That’s exactly what makes a great experience. Next time I’m São Miguel I‘ll be sure to return. #gastronomoNumberOne
