I still like this place for lots of reasons - mainly the helpful staff, a good selection of newspapers for customers to read, and the lovely tapas dishes and burgers. But I have noticed that there are more and more groups of mothers and babies/toddlers using this as a meeting place, and some days it feels more like a creche than a cafe/bar/restaurant. Despite the fact there is a designated area for prams/buggies a lot of parents choose to block aisles and access to other tables by keeping their childrens stuff next to them. I am not a child hater - it is just that I am starting to avoid Alto during the day as it is becoming very difficult to have a a quiet breakfast, coffee break or lunch due to noisy/screaming kids.
I would now rate it as 'poor' during the day (for the reasons stated) but 'very good' in the evenings/at night. Therefore I am rating it average overall.
