We return to Chatters Bistro on a regular basis and we are never dissapointed. The food is good and the pizzas fantastic. They do serve the best Pavlova in South Africa.

Fabulous pizzas, probably the best we have ever had with great service. Book or you could be disappointed. Only regret is we eat here only once.

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.
