Description: This celebrated a la carte restaurant is an authentic Maltese bistro under a rustic vault ceiling with a beautiful terrace; the latter being filled with flawlessly presented tables all year round for the enjoyment of a sumptuous al fresco meal. Al Ponte is renowned, particularly among local guests, for its delicious Mediterranean food and selection of local and foreign wines. Feast on a scrumptious pizza, fresh from Al Ponte's stone oven, after watching the progress of your mouth-watering meal in the bistro's open kitchen. In the late morning, the bistro acts as a cafeteria, and later on serves lunch and also dinner. Cakes and coffees are continuously available. Al Ponte Pizzeria and Bistro is one of the Restaurants at the MARITIM Antonine Hotel & Spa.

Reviewed 14 April 2012

We went on a Sunday morning. The interior is really nice decorated with fine ceramics and warm environment. The selection of food is vast and the food quality is also good. The staff was really friendly and helpful. Would definitively go again.

“Good food and fast service”
Reviewed 16 February 2012

We've been to Al Ponte several times in the last couple of years and were always pleased with the quality of food and service. Even though its a big restaurant and always very busy you won't have to wait too long for the food. The food quality is very good, we've tried pizza, pasta and also meat dishes and were always pleased.

“Not Good”
Reviewed 27 December 2011

Dear Readers,this is the first time that in a review i am going to be this open but i think that in these types of writings you have to write what you really thinks as the readers search the truth !So less talking and more writing:) We have went two times at this hotel and unluckily yo say the both times we went out quite disappionted. The first time was a long time ago so i wont comment about it but i remember that we made a lot of time waiting ! Two days ago was Christmas and we went to have the breakfast there (after the midnight mass at about 2 in the morning .The price was 16 euro-very reasonable).Although teh price was good the food was terrible with a very small choice.There was no ommelletes being made and there were only one type of everythin like only pork sausages.The coffee was served cold and the fruit was so 'hard'. The hotel is near the Church so it was very good for a breakfast but for turists -it is not in the centre.On the positive side the staff is very kind and the hotel is very clean.
