Exceptional salads and a great choice of wine and Sangrias. Priced about right for the historic area of Bethlehem. Service is always good and the goat cheese and beet salad is a hit. Parking can be difficult unless you park in one of 2 multi level garages. The area has centuries of history to share and Tapas provides the perfect... More

Highly recommend Tapas on Main. Blood Orange Sangria is Awesome! Date and Bacon small plate is a must too! Can't go wrong with an outside table as the sun is setting. Great place to unwind in Downtown Bethlehem! Enjoy.

I went with a friend to Tapas during restaurant week. She had never been there for an actual meal before and we wanted to catch up. First of all, the restaurant was stifling hot. I am not sure what the issue was with the AC, but other customers complained about the extreme heat as well. The second problem was the... More

I have yet to be dissapointed by the food or drinks here. The service is always excellent. One of the best restaurants in the valley. My only problem is the lighting is too dark.

this place is connected to a creperia and you can order from either menu regardless of which restaurant you sit in. The wife had a seafood/shrimp type crepe which was good. I had a mix of Tapas which were very good. Just nice attractive staff and setting across from the Hotel Bethlehem. They serve espresso as well. and a decent... More

Was there during off hours. Not too busy. Good lunch special with Cuban sandwich. Lots of beers, including local.

This is one of the places I usually enjoy. Great ambiance inside and outside. Food is delicious and the sangrias are my favorite. Some of the staff have been questionable at times as far as knowing how to treat guests (maybe just having a little TOO much fun at work), but I wouldn't hold that against the restaurant. A Main...

It wasn't by any means bad. But neither was I impressed. The food: I grant that the menu does a nice job of pointing out the vegetarian options, of which there are several (and not just salad). Finding vegetarian substitutes for Spanish food definitely is a challenge, so I must give them kudos on that point. But glancing over the... More

This is a really cool restaurant. Wonderful decor, sit inside or outside, bustling corner of Main St, prompt service, clean atmosphere. The food was delicious -- wish we could have ordered more plates! What we did order was outstanding: * sangria (I had a flight of three, all delicious) * bandeja mixta with cantimpalo, manchego and mahon curado * gambas... More

I've always wanted to try this restaurant. Today while in Bethlehem my family and I finally got the chance. It was about 1:30 pm when we arrived. We sat outside which was nice. It took forever and a day for the waitress to get to us as did the food! We had to return my daughters coffee as the cream... More
