My husband and I love going to Chimole when we are in downtown Leesburg! Service is always good and the food is always great! We recommend the taco and enchilada tapas platter, bean fondue with the chorizo, and mango sangria! This is definitely not your cookie cutter restaurant in Leesburg. Expect a fun, lively environment. If you get a chance,... More

We were just looking for appetizers to hold us until dinner. What a pleasant surprise this was - we had a group of 6 gals and sat around a comfy square table in the bar/lounge area. The dining and bar areas are quite small but very cozy. The tapas menu was perfect for our desires and each plate was delicious.... More

We had reservations for eleven friends, seven of whom were former PC volunteers in Honduras and were happy to meet the owner and her son who are expat Hondurenos. This restaurant and gallery brings interesting flavors to "colonial" Leesburg and fits right into a convenient downtown dining experience. We enjoyed the delicious refried beans, reminiscent of lots of home-cooked meals... More

Great atmosphere - very eclectic. Doubles as an art gallery. The night we went, there were several paintings with nude women - not my favorite subject ;) We ate inside, but next time will try the patio out back - it looks very enchanting. This was my first time eating at a tapas restaurant, so I have nothing to compare... More

Honestly, I would rather have small portions with delicious food than lots of ho hum food. This was delicious food, and it wasn't all bad to leave not totally stuffed. The service was good and the atmosphere was fun. The fish tacos were delicious!!

This restaurant and wine bar is amazing. The food is delicious and the atmosphere is incredibly fun! It is attached to a gallery with some amazing works of art. You must have the hummus when you stop by. You will come back for more!!! And if you are lucky they will have live music on the evening you go. Anyone... More
