Great ambience, friendly and warm. Extensive well-priced wine list, super service and the best pizza I'v e had for a long time. Highly recommended.

The Hubby and I were delighted to find that the woodfired pizza's made by Chatter's are still as delicious as ever! Crispy bases with generous toppings (even the avo is generously served!) and friendly, efficient service made for very happy tummies and memories. We will be returning!!

Chatters for our weekly pizza fix. Sadly, the salads are so good that they are the first choice, meaning I never get to try the desserts, as a pizza is a must. Even if it's shared.

First time visitors to Knysna so as usual we consult trustyTA. We fancied a pizza and this place came up. What we got was tasty but not a pizza! Wrong dough base and topping added after cooking?

Over the years we've been visiting Knysna we have found that some of our favourite places have dropped standards, some have closed but some- like Chatters- are consistently excellent. Pizza toppings are incredibly generous- UK vendors could do with picking up some tips! As well as the wheat free base I usually opt for they are now offering Banting. I... More

Chatters is popular with both locals and visitors alike . You have the option of either sitting indoors or outside . The menu is varied but most people seem to go for their pizzas . The choice is wide and varied and the toppings are generous . Sadly my pizza arrived with a burnt crust but was otherwise very tasty... More

Pizzas thin and crispy with decent amounts of toppings and a good number of choices. Service was good and place was busy and it was a Sunday night not necessarily the busiest of the week. The decor pretty basic and we sat on benches outside although there were some tables with chairs. A pretty standard pizzeria with above average pizzas... More

We do not often eat pizza but this was very good. The place was busy and obviously popular but the service was a bit slow

If you haven't been you must! I almost hate telling people about it, its that good, friendly and efficent service, good beer selection and the best and biggest wine selection in Knysna. The Pizza's are simply the best, they pride themselves in offering several kinds of non-wheat bases. Great atmosphere! Much much better than 34 South by miles!
