Had a great experience at this Bistro. Staff are friendly. Food is good and the prices are not ridiculous. Been disappointed in a few places in Knysna Chatters has been a welcome change!

Chatters is famous for thin-n-crispy, made-to-order pizzas, a great wine list and home-made desserts. Owner-run, with a casual feel and friendly service style. Outside garden area for warm summer evenings and an inside area with a wood-burning stove, or an enclosed patio for the cooler winter evenings. Extensive wine list available (corkage not permitted and no license for take-away alcohol). Please book to avoid disappointment.
