“Awesome Cordon Bleu Festival”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 16, 2014

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.

“Awsome selection of Cordon Bleus”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 20, 2014

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.

“Go for the Cordon Bleu”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 12, 2014 via mobile

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.

“Good food in relaxed family run establishment”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 26, 2013

We really enjoyed this little restaurant. Arrived without reservations (bad idea, it's popular with the locals) but were seated with some other people. Very gracious service, excellent Swiss food. Servings on the large side. Soup was excellently flavoured. Desserts mostly of the icecream variety, or chestnut as in Mont Blanc. The former, served with orange liqueur was good. Would hace liked the chestnut but had observed the servings were huge and didn't dare!

Unfortunately for us, closed on Sun and Mon or would return.

“Not bad at all!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 3, 2013 via mobile

Had a day trip in Zurich, so we decided to try this as it was not as expensive as the other highly rated restaurants. I had the "I Don't Care" Cordon Bleu while my gf had original. Both were excellent! The dried tomatos gave mine an explosion of flavours so make sure you go with an empty stomach. Definitely get a side of fries(not included). Don't underestimate the original. It's simple yet still very very delicious.
