Our first visit was a busy Saturday night, there were no tables but the very helpful hostess promised to reserve the first one available and call us. We went for a nice walk round the Waterfront and had a drink and when we wandered back our table was ready - excellent! Pizzas and salad were excellent, and the trio of... More

Dissapointed by the pizza and pasta. The gorgonzola sauce is not what to expect. Pizza was overloaded and fatty. Service was good. Pleasant terrasse.

We were visiting Knysna from both Cape Town and Johannesburg and we are rather well travelled professionals and consider ourselves Foodie types... this family run business is incredible. From the welcome as you enter through the gate all the way through to waving you goodbye, Chatters and the friendly folk in the place make it an experience not to forget.... More

The pizza and baked potato dish were excellent. Food arrived promptly without any delay. The employees are truly guest oriented, very polite, helpful and smily. It is not overpriced as some people suggest and definitely for me was good value for money. Ig you are looking for uncomplicated food after long day walking, this should be your place.

After a day full of walking around Knysna we decided something very close to our accomadation would be appropriate. Well, Chatters was just around the corner so fitted the bill perfectly. Service was brisk, drinks variety adequate as was the menu. Our pizzas came fairly quickly and were excellent. Our waitress talked us into the Belgium Chocolate Mousse which was... More

A group of my touring buddies from New Horizon's Travel Club ate at Chatters when we stayed at the Kynsa Log-In down the street. It was a very short and pleasant walk. We ate wonderful pizzas with a wide variety of toppings. The owner's friendly father served us on the outdoor patio. A great time was had by all!

My partner and I visited Chatters for a late lunch over new year's weekend. We both ordered pizza which is what they are famous for. Unfortunately, we found the pizzas to be average and frankly quite over-priced (R160 for one of them). However, the service was good and the staff were friendly.

First came here during my previous trip to south Africa 5 years ago, and the pizzas were some of the best I'd ever had! So I was very pleased to confirm when visiting again that they were still of the same exceptional quality. Crispy thin bases, with a great selection of unusual but high-quality and tasty toppings.
