“Wood grilled pizza - enough said!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 20, 2013

Chatters was recommended to us by our tour leader, who frequents when he travels through Knysna, which is regularly. I've traveled to a lot of different places, and eaten many a pizza pie, but Chatters served us probably the best pizza I've ever had. Our group of six dined there two nights in a row, and tried over half a dozen of their specialty pizzas collectively. It takes good chefs to know what unique ingredients are harmonious, as opposed to clashing, in an effort to seek creativity. The crust of the pie greatly benefits from the wood fired ovens. And a special thanks to our server who recommended the Pinotage, a wine exclusive to South Africa. I've never enjoyed a red wine more!

I recommend sitting outdoors, weather permitting. Their patio is charming.

“Great food, great service, great experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 8, 2013

Finding a really good pizza isn't that easy these days. The market seems split between greasy sauce-drenched Debonairs-style pizzas and sparce, flavour-free and topping-free "gourmet" pizzas.

Chatters, however, gets it right. Lots of quality toppings, cooked to perfection.

We will definitely visit again when we are back in Knysna

“Best pizza EVER!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 4, 2013

What a stunning selection of pizzas! There is a reason why this place is fully booked all the time - the pizzas are outstanding. Make sure to book in advance when next you plan a trip to Knysna. Service was great and we loved the extensive winelist. Can't wait to go back!
