The food was alright, sufficiently interesting with seemingly authentic presentations, but I found myself not hugely impressed, as I had tapas in different places and with greater varieties and tastes. Wahaca appears rather average. Very loud music an noisy in peak time. Worth trying and...More

Baby changing room is large and as Wayne said, there are lots of nooks and crannies so I'm sure you would be accommodated if you said you'd like to breast feed covertly :)

Hi there Anthony B, I'm glad to say that we do have disabled toilets that are on the same floor as the restaurant so makes it easy to access by wheelchair. Kind Regards, Steven
