This stunning little Bistro on the square in Woodmill Lane really does offer a warm atmosphere and friendly hospitality.... And the cuisine they claim is made with love. Well, we did experience that, great place!

“Very pleasant all round”
Reviewed 5 March 2014

We have enjoyed a light lunch here twice recently. Food excellent, Egg Benedict delicious, as are quiche dishes, and cakes, shaded seating in central location, handy for shopping or just people watching.

“Chaplin's Bistro hosted a special birthday event”
Reviewed 5 January 2014

Knysna is one of the most beautiful towns in South Africa and I choose to celebrate my birthday there. A group on friends met for lunch at Chaplin’s, situated in an open court in Woodmille lane shopping center. The restaurant has a lovely setting either under trees outside or cosy tables and lounge area inside. The food was divine, the service (although a big group) great and the staff very friendly. The owners Bruce and Jenny went out of their way to make it a very special occasion. Excellent breakfast and lunch spot with the best carrot cake in SA! For any special events or functions contact Jenny Burrows the co-owner whose creativity and organizing skills will delightfully surprise you!!

“A good place to meet”
Reviewed 8 October 2013

Chaplins in Woodmill Centre is a welcoming place to eat or just to have a coffee. The food is excellent and reasonable, but its greatest charm is its location, superb for just sitting a reading your newspaper or just people watching while you enjoy a good meal or a drink.
