We stayed in Knysna two weeks ago and went to Chatters as it was highly recommended and we had a great meal. Pizzas were excellent and the sweets were wonderful. If you go to Knysna its well worth a visit but make sure you book.

We came according to the TripAdvisor reccomand, and we ended up very disappointed. This is a poor attempt of making an Italian food.

Ordered some House Wine (on their recommendation) - which was quite good. Food was cheese and veg. pizzas. all were great. Very full and happening place to be in, and... More

We had nice pizza's on a rainy night in Knysna. This meant we had to sit inside which did not have great ambiance, it would have been great outside but of course nothing we can do about the weather. The service was good, the pizza's were tasty on a nice thin base and the dessert was delicious. A good, reasonably... More

Great little place for pizza/pasta set in the middle of Knysna. Super thin pizzas come fully loaded with delicious ingredients (some a bit more enticing than others...bacon & banana 😳). Waffles for dessert are a winner...truffles with espresso a bit of a let down.

You'd be a fool to miss this place when stopping in Knysna. We started with the melted Brie and ciabatta, cooked in the pizza oven and served with crusty ciabatta. Followed by a beautiful thin and crispy pizza, with a tasty chilli sauce on the side. Perfectly finished off with waffles and beautiful home made ice cream with chocolate sauce.... More

We go there often and it is always very good. Ingredient changes to pizzas are picked up without problems and the pizzas as the salads are always good. I can say that it is my favorite place for pizza in Knysna! Well done team Chatters!!!
