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.

Absolutely incredible! The owner, Sonya, is FANTASTIC! Fresh amazing food, all local and delicious. It was my sons birthday and she sang to him and brought him cake. We picked our fish fresh from the catches of the day, she poured HUGE beers and glasses...of wine, and we finished the meal with fresh pineapple. We left with Sonya giving the whole family hugs! Incredible experience here on the island!More

We ate last night in Gastronomo and it was an incredible night. One of the best meals I can remember and the hostess Sonja is so full of life and laughter. First of all the Tuna was the best tuna I’ve ever eaten. Cooked perfectly...over a charcoal grill and melt in your mouth tender. The trigger fish was incredible and the limpets, which is an Azore special were beautiful. The fun we had with the family who run the restaurant was brilliant and I hope to eat again there soon. Thank you for a wonderful mealMore

This restaurant is the place to eat when in Ponta Delgada. The owners will welcome you with open arms and the service is so personal and excellent. We tried Lapas and the fish of the day, which you can see and pick fresh. The taste...of the food and the recommended wine was delicious. Thank you for such a great evening at your place.More

We had a fantastic meal at Gastronomo on Monday, so we decided to come back today. The food is prepared with a lot of flavor and we've had the best clams ever. Our hosts Goncalo and Sonia were ever friendly, even at busy moments. We...can highly recommend this restaurant and would love to come back one day.More

I was a little worried that Gastronomo might not live up to its bold name, but it is absolutely terrific. When the local ingredients are this good the cooking doesn’t need to be fancy - they are the star. Shared an amazing parrotfish with yams...and sweet potato. The service is super- personable - they remember your name and they take delight in showing you the fish on ice. But be prepared for service to be on the slow side - it takes a while for them to get round the tables!More

When I was there they were not open for lunch; in fact we had to wait for them to open for dinner.

I'm pretty sure they can arrange something, but that won't be easy in Portugal.
