Think of Latin America and your mind drifts to spectacular landscapes, carnivals and exceptional tapas. The Emperor takes inspiration from all that Latin America has to offer to bring an authentic taste of this superb cuisine to Cambridge.

Inside, the pretty tiled bar takes centre stage while splashes of colour add a cheery vibe to this laid-back venue. The feel-good mood is reflected in the food, showcasing some of the finest tapas around. Fusing Latin flavours with Cambridge produce, the kitchen creates the likes of quesadillas served with spicy relish, battered white fish, sea bass and calamari with salsa, and grilled lamb chops marinated with Amarillo chilli and served on a bed of tacu tacu. Other tapas to try includes patatas bravas, tortillas filled with chicken, and deep-fried empanadas stuffed with beef and potatoes. Ice cream is expertly made and is sure to yield further satisfaction. Couple with a glass of Chilean wine or Mexican tequila, and you’ll be good to go.

If you’re not feeling the sociable babble in the bar and are looking for a more chilled experience, head up to the second-floor dining room and take your time over the delicious food. This independent establishment captures the spirit of Latin America perfectly, adding a dose of Cambridge’s charm for good measure.
