It is amazing how this restaurant works, the service, the food, the ambiance. You cannot go wrong with Chatterpauls. And now they have live music! It is amazing.

We had a delicious meal for two. The salad was huge as were the two meals. The Chatter Rib was so soft, tender and full of flavour. The chicken parm was also full of flavour! Dessert was a perfect size after the generous portions! Can’t...wait to order again!!More

My family and I recently celebrated my birthday ( a week B4 Mother's Day) with food from Chatterpaul's new (COVID-19-related) Take-out service -- the service and food were amazing as usual. As patrons of Chatterpaul's for the past 10 years or so, we have come...to truly appreciate the work that Chad and Penny and their staff have put into making this restaurant one of Durham's finest. After reading Penny's 'A note from Chatterpaul's about Mother's Day' (13MAY20) it re-enforced just how dedicated and committed Chad, Penny and team are to making this place even more of a success than it already is, given that one-time experience. Yes they had problems on Mother's Day but it is the way they and their brave (front-line) staff handled everything (including Penny's response in the e-mail) that sets them apart from most other food fares in the Whitby area. My family and I will be re-doubling our efforts to dine there more often now knowing the major challenges the business faced that day and knowing they will come out of this unprecedented pandemic 'hit', that we are all taking, even more committed! Kudos to Penny, Chad and team. We look forward to dining in one day soon!More

I was dubious that Chatterpaul's outstanding food quality could be maintained in takeout, but I was wrong. My food was ready on time, was hot and delicious. The chicken parmesan was as good or better than any we had in Italy, and the lamb shank...was outstanding.More

We are not people who frequent takeaway meals. We just are having a wonderful takeaway dinner from CHATTERPAUL'S and we had to interrupt the meal to tell you so. This experience was like dining in the restaurant. We are very happy with the quality of...what we got. We feel there was excellent value for what we paid. Thank you for making the process easy to follow. For that we thank the staff. During these difficult times, we finally were able to celebrate a meal that made us think of better times.More

Went to this restaurant for my birthday and had a wonderful meal. I had not been there in a while and it did not disappoint. I would say it has to be one of the best restaurants in the Whitby area. The atmosphere is good,...the service is efficient and the food is delicious, everyone enjoyed their meal. This restaurant is a "HIT" for me, as I love the bit of island flavour they infuse into the meals.More
