This old-world restaurant on the northern beaches at Balgowlah is a hidden gem on bustling Sydney Road. Chez Maurice et Linda's menu is classic, direct and unpretentious. If you like your French food rich and filling then this is the place for you. The menu rarely changes, so expect the likes of deep fried camembert with raspberry sauce, braised duck in orange and Grand Marnier sauce, and perfectly pink lamb with garlic mashed potato.
