Chatters had been highly recommended earlier in the day by friends. So on a lovely hot day in Knysna this was a lovely place to be. We were looked after by Keith and later by owner Rob who were both attentive and proud of this excellent establishment. Chatters is on Gray Street a vibrant section which runs down into the... More

I visited Chatters for the 1st time in 2 years last week and I'm definitely going there again as soon as I can. Lovely ambience whether sitting inside or outside. Service was good and so was the food. Definitely worth a try for lunch or breakfast.

Very nice pizzeria with authentic flavors. Helpful people in advice of the menu and wine. Even though very crowded, you still have perfect privacy. A must do restaurant.

In truth, Knysna is not about fine dining. It's about feeding the multitude of tourists that flock there every summer. We have tried all of the most popular eateries in town but none has pleased us more than Chatters. It may just be a simple Italian bistro but the food is (in most parts) freshly prepared and the service is... More

Simple fare but all excellently cooked and served in a very pleasant outside area with great staff and a nice "buzzy" atmosphere at very fair prices. What more could you ask for?

Delicious and filling food at excellent prices. The wood-fired pizzas were tremendous (with a vast choice on the menu) and there is a lovely choice of home made desserts. Somewhat rustic ambience but that merely adds to the feel of the place. It may seem incongruous to eat Italian in S Africa, but I'd recommend that in this instance you... More

This family owned restaurant is fabulous. We had lunch and dinner there and both were very good. At lunch we had the baked Brie, tropical salad, and biltong salad which were all good. The leafy salad is just that. Lots of lettuce. For dinner we had their amazing wood-fired pizzas. For quality calorie lovers be warned that their deserts are... More
