We had had a terrible dining experience the night before at another restaurant in Knysna in busy December, so we rather tentatively walked into Chatters, across the road from where we were staying. What a great evening - extreme opposite from the night before thankfully....More

A really nice and good feel to this place in the harbour area of Knysna. Sat outside in the garden area (got to be outside) and it's a nice relaxed, easy setting. Pizza and salad and everything else was really good and all the family...More

When we arrived at Knysna we really fancied pizza so had already reviewed where to visit and it certainly lived up to its reviews. I would recommend booking as it was very busy which shows how popular the restaurant is. The family led staff are...More
