Quality over everything! A small, tiny restaurant but the food is HUGE! Almost 15 different types of cordon bleu, didn't try all of them so far, but the ones I had were amazing!! Not fancy, trendy or modern - this place is just about food - nothing more, nothing less! Service is simple, but very friendly! If you're around town... More

My wife and I decided to follow a hint in the local newspaper and visited Gertrudhof. Many years ago we had an appartement close to the place but we never visited this place. The place is located in one of the less famous but very traditional places in Zurich. A lot of normal people and students are living in this... More

This restaurant is a short tram ride from the main station with a short walk through a neighborhood. We went based on the reviews from previous customers. The restaurant itself is small and appeared to be frequented by locals. There were approximately 15 choices for cordon bleu that come in three sizes (about 4 oz, about 6oz, and about 8oz).... More

This small restaurant is located outside of the beaten path. But it is worth going to. You will need to call ahead, as tables are always busy. They serve a big variety of cordon bleu. Excellent quality. Sides include homemade Rösti, a local specialty made from potatoes. Cordon bleu are available in three sizes. I chose the mid-sized, which ended... More

I have been to Gertrudhof with a goup of friends and we enjoyed a nice dinner. It's a regular local restaurant with easy people from the village. Friendly staff and with a great choice of different styles of Cordon-Bleu's. It's not a restaurant you go for healthy food, but for great tasty food!

Great place to have a cordon bleu. The have all kind of varieties, from the "original" to "Mexican" cordon bleu with beans, corn and salsa. The service was outstanding and waiters speak good English. They also serve a very good, cold and local beer.

They have many different kinds of cordon bleus. I went for a “scharfer Sascha” and it was excellent. As well the starter and the dessert were very good. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Everybody who likes cordon bleus should have a go at Gertrudhof.

Took advice from other TripAdvisors, and was pleased with the results. Easy to find, and seated right away at 1800, without reservations. Hungry, but not famished, so we each had a small, traditional pork Cordon Bleu, and shared a rosti. Just enough, delicious, and the staff couldn't have been friendlier. Will certainly return when in Zuerich.
