Great Place for a Bite During Musikfest

Although we have lived in the Lehigh Valley for decades, this was the first time we have dined here. It has a convenient location on Main Street and a nice selection of small plates and entrees. The inside has a good amount of seating and there is also outdoor dining. Consult the website for the... read more

My wife and I visited Tapas again last evening for the 4th anniversary of our 1st date. There is a reason we love this place. It was a beautiful evening and we got to sit outside on Main Street which is a bit loud but very nice. We started with the blood orange sangria which is always amazing. We also... More

Always make reservations. This place is always packed. Noise levels can be somewhat high. If it's a nice evening, outdoor seating is available. I've been here a few times and haven't been disappointed. That being said, please remember this is a Tapas restaurant. They have a few larger plates, but the majority are small shareable plates.

We chose Tapas on Main in the hopes of finding a restaurant that offered a variety of high-quality food options. We didn't go wrong. The food was exquisitely prepared and fresh as you'd expect. Whether it was the perfectly cooked calamari, or the lamb chops, everything was masterfully prepared and presented. We had a few kids with us, and the... More

Had dinner here with a large group and it was great. Our waiter was patient and helpful, able to describe the dishes and make recommendations. And the food was delicious!

Travel through on business once a month and always stop here. Best sangria ever and great tapas and main courses. The mussels are some of the best I have had. Great atmosphere and staff.

We had the calamari which was good but soggy the batter didn't really stick to the rings . However the garlic shrimp was amazing the portions are... More

Very friendly service, and the food was good. Most of my party ordered crepes and really liked them.

Had a late dinner on a warm summer night outside. Upbeat, attentive waitress, great Sangria, and lots of interesting choices on the menu. Lamb meatballs, grilled scallops, stuffed eggplant and skirt steak flatbread was more than enough for the 2 of us. Reasonably priced, tasty, unhurried, and a most enjoyable part of our weekend away.

So my wife found out I was planning a surprise party...long story so I called it off. I needed an alternative that would put me back in her good graces fast! I went Trip Advisor and found great reviews on everything in Bethlehem...including Tapas on Main. It surpassed the reviews! It was like sushi but with a Spanish and American... More
