“excellent value french food”
Reviewed October 10, 2012

The restauraunt is now under new owners and while we have been regular visitors over many years we are delighted the standard has been maintained. The menu has not changed significantly but there have been some inprovements- the shared vegetable platter has improved with the vegetables definately better spiced and firmer. The price at under $50 for 2 courses is great value. meals are well portioned. All four diners had lamb on one occassion with 3 variations in cooking. All arrived as ordered and at the same time.
There are a variety of choices in all courses covering meat, chicken, duck and fish. The mushroom and scallops as entrees are hard to beat.
Parking if not on the street is available under Stocklands just around the corner.
The restaurant is BYO which is always a plus.

What a fantastic little bit of traditional French heaven in the heart of Balgowlah.
My husband and I have been going here for years and always jump at the chance to take visitors for a treat.
The restaurant has a set menu of 2 or 3 courses at $43.50 for 2 and $51.50 for 3, with heaps of choices available to select from.
It is unlicensed so don't forget to BYO.
The food is amazing and we were worried when Maurice & Linda sold, but the new owner has kept the menu the same and if anything, it is even better than before.
This is more an adult restaurant as it is quite small and cosy, not child friendly, but children are also welcome of course.
Balgowlah is becoming the hub for fine dining and we feel so lucky to have such choices right on our doorstep.
Go and try Chez Maurice & Linda, you won't be disappointed.
