All in all good food, but it was a little expensive for the amount you get. I know small plates are supposed to be that but a friend and I who are small eaters shared a triple choice plate and it was almost not enough. Other than that it is a friendly and clean restaurant. I had the Picante(I think... More

Tapas on Main is in the center of Bethlehem and when dining on the sidewalk you are right on Main Street. We order Tapas and soup and were pleased with the quality of most of the dishes. Calamari, Mussels, Hummus with Basil were all first rate. Avoid the croquettes which seemed to be all dough with very little of the... More

The dishes were both mainly the rice which was dry, the chicken in my husbands dish was also dry. The clams and mussels in mine were so small that the meat from them... More

My daughter and I had dinner here one evening and found it to be just ok. The food was good, nothing stood out as exceptional, which was a little disappointing, since tapas often pack a lot of flavor into a small plate. The service was a little slow, and once served, we didn’t see much of the waitress. The atmosphere... More

We live north of PHiladelphia, but haven't explored Bethlehem before, and it seemed like a good meeting place for friends who live west of Allentown. The dining scene on Main Street, with all the outdoor dining, was quite a (pleasant) surprise on a nice Saturday evening recently. Tapas on Main was good, but fell short of outstanding in a few...

This is a really nice place to spend a night with family or friend!! The food (with little adaptations of the Spanish cuisine to th American taste) is really tasty and the environment friendly and relaxed. We liked it!

As the restaurant which we originally wanted to try was closed, we wandered along the main thoroughfare of Bethlehem seeking outdoor seating as we had our young dog with us. We stopped at Tapas on Main and decided to try this unusual Spanish restaurant which also allowed dogs to dine outside. We were very impressed with the warm and inviting... More

We had family visiting in June and we had raved about Tapas so of course we had to go. The food is excellent, wonderful flavors...the goat cheese and almond stuffed dates wrapped with bacon with balsamic drizzle are amazing. The sangria is always good, a favorite is the blood orange one. We've eaten there quite a few times and have... More
