After reading all the great reviews we were looking forward to our dinner at chatters. Pizza however not more than average. Local delivery service offers better pizza in our view. Service not very attentive. Overall: disappointing.

Very good pizza and friendly service. Unfortunately cannot comment on the recommended pizzas as they all had an ingredient that was out of season! I was tempted to walk to the nearest supermarket to source the elusive Avos. So unhappily we settled for non-Avo pizzas,...More

We return to Chatters Bistro on a regular basis and we are never dissapointed. The food is good and the pizzas fantastic. They do serve the best Pavlova in South Africa.

If you like good pizza, good wine, and good service, this place is for you. It may not be fancy but the price is very reasonable and oven baked pizza is delicious.

Chatters is famous for thin-n-crispy, made-to-order pizzas, a great wine list and home-made desserts. Owner-run, with a casual feel and friendly service style. Outside garden area for warm summer evenings and an inside area with a wood-burning stove, or an enclosed patio for the cooler winter evenings. Extensive wine list available (corkage not permitted and no license for take-away alcohol). Please book to avoid disappointment.
