I usually order a large pizza because "next morning breakfast pizza" is great. But the pizza was so good I devoured my entire large pizza and left empty handed. I was tempted to order another pizza for breakfast but prudence prevailed. We were served by Rob only to later find out he is the owner. Rob, if you had to... More

Had two different pizza's and a bottle of wine, all of which were amazing. Freshly cooked stone-baked pizza's were very tasty. Service was really good, staff were friendly and polite. Would have definitely returned, but we were on a mission to try a few restaurants out!!

Chatter was recommended to us by the owner of Ithyani guest accommodations. He was right about the quality of the food. We sat out at a simple table with white lights. Service was excellent and the food was superb. Great salad, yummy pizza and over the top good home made ice cream with chocolate sauce. Can't wait until the next... More

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.
