As locals, we mostly re-visit this lunch/dinner spot on special occasions. The gluten-free pizza and wine dinner came in at quite a hefty price, but somehow we always have the greatest time here. The service is fast and friendly and you get the feeling they know what they're doing in the kitchen! Even thought Chatters is a short walk away from the touristic waterfront, we easily recommend this upmarket pizza spot to friends and guests. They offer a good selection of pizza and local wine, and on a good night, the garden setting offers you a magical atmosphere...

Definitely worth a try if you like thin pizza bases. They also cater for wheat and gluten free. Just not impressed with their salads. The first one on the menus is really just a collection of a couple of leafs, trust the menu there.

We were looking for a place to eat lunch, but not being familiar with Knysna's hotspots, ended up driving down one of the streets and luckily spotted Chatters. It looked warm and welcoming and indeed was. Our host was very friendly and service was prompt! The pizza was absolutely delicious and was stacked with fresh avocado on the top - honestly one of the best pizza's I've ever had!! A pleasant atmosphere and warm sunny day, made for the perfect lunch!!

My first taste of a pizza in Venice, Italy back in 1979 possibly put me off this form of food for life! The thick stodgy base, smothered in a tart tomato sauce and sprinkled with a glutinous topping which was supposedly cheese was a definite no return! However, my wife, an avid pizza fan, persuaded me to have a slice of her seafood pizza at Chatters and I might just order one the next time we visit and visit we will. The pizza base was wafer thin, crisp and the topping complemented, rather than detracted from, the overall package. My tagliatelle carbonara was as it should have been. Egg, pork and pecorino rather than the smothering cheesy white sauce often dished up as an alternative. The wine list is refreshingly different and comprehensive whilst the service was just about as friendly and efficient as one could ever expect. Log No. 9a Gray St. Knysna into your GPS!
