Chimole is a really fun spot!

It's right on king street with plenty of other restaurants but this one has a great night life! Dancing tapas wine. It's all good. The clientele is fun too. I didn't meet a stranger that night. I also love love love the artwork!

Service is good and food was delicious. The band was excellent. We danced (dance floor is tiny) and atmosphere is nice. Great place to go but they need to make drinks a little stronger

We were not sure which of the sangria's we wanted so they let us sample the house selection and compared it to the bottled selection. Worth it! We went with the bottled version. Which was a bit pricey for alcohol-flavored juice. Fish tacos were great! Salsa is spot on! Pork sliders were okay, but considered to be cold tapas.

My wife and I went for dinner recently. In an interesting building right in downtown Leesburg, with many small rooms, a connecting art studio, and a small patio out back. Since it was a nice night, we went for the outdoor seating. The outside area could use some cleaning up as there are a lot of items that would be... More

We've been here before. Really good food, nice atmosphere, a bit loud. But they are very busy tonight. Tonight we are having the ceviche and fish tacos. The ceviche was great. Very fresh. Tacos good as well. Nice experience.

I chose this restaurant because of the reviews on Tripadvisor and was not disappointed. Located in the heart of Old town Leesburg, the restaurant/bar/art gallery has a charming atmosphere. The service was friendly and our fish tacos were awesome! My only regret: our evening schedule had us leaving too early. A live band was setting up as we were leaving.... More

My wife and I visited Chimole to cap off a day trip to Leesburg. We ordered a bunch of different tappas, and liked everything we tried. The night we were there, they had live music to add to the experience. Great food, great service, great atmosphere, and reasonably priced. What more do you need?

My friend and I went there for grub and drinks and I was impressed. The bean fondue was mouthgasmic and the jalapeño mojito was the best I have had outside of Key West. The waiter/bartender was terrific and was apologetic for taking so long with the drinks (He hand diced, crushed and muddled the ingredients for the drinks. They were... More

We walked into Chimole looking for a lunch one rainy Saturday. What an excellent decision! The small plates were delicious and paired quite well with the wine selections from the eclectic wine list. So impressed were we that we returned the following evening for dinner and live music that had us up and dancing with the owner by the end... More
