We stayed in Knysna two weeks ago and went to Chatters as it was highly recommended and we had a great meal. Pizzas were excellent and the sweets were wonderful. If you go to Knysna its well worth a visit but make sure you book.

We came according to the TripAdvisor reccomand, and we ended up very disappointed. This is a poor attempt of making an Italian food.

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.
