If you want the whole variety of cordonbleus, this is the place to go: pork, beef, veal in all different kinds of sizes according to your liking. Staff is great, food is perfect and prices are completely in order for what you get. Overall a wonderful, down-to-earth exception to mainstream food in Zurich.

Gertrudhof specialises in cordon blue, and has a selection of variations on this dish, made with either pork or veal. We had the Appenzeller, the Entlebucher, and the Taleggio - all three were great. There's a selection of sides as well, including a number of salads. This is a very down-to-earth restaurant, with friendly service, and hearty food. A great... More

This place specializes in cordonbleus. You can choose from over 20 types - I chose "knobli" - the garlic cordonbleu. It came with chunks of mashed garlic cooked within the meat, it was heavenly! The cordonbleus were are around 25-35 CHF each, and the side dished are charged separately, mostly 6-8 CHF. On a busy day, prepare to share tables... More

We had a great evening in this place, the food was great, probably the best cordon bleu we had in Zurich area. The place was full and we were having dinner at the same table as another group of people, which did not disturb us but would have been nice to have a little more privacy. We recommend it, however...

This place has one of the best Cordonbleus i have ever eaten. You have some diffrent types of fill-ins. The best one i think is the one with garlic. (But you have to like it). The prices are very fair and it is very familier in there. The location is easy to reach and in a hip district of zurich.... More

If you love cordon bleu this is the place to go! They have a big selection of different cordon bleus and so far all of them have been excellent! The staff is friendly and the restaurant is quite cosy.

It is already the fourth time I have tried this restaurant and, believe me, it is the best cordon bleu you can find in Zurich city. Far away from the too touristic place in the old town, this pub/restaurant offers an "original" experience of the Swiss traditional dishes. Even if they changed the owner recently, they are still the top!... More

Finally visited the restaurant just around the corner from where i live and which is famous for cordon bleu. Service is halfway friendly at best. One cordon bleu needed 3 attempts to be properly cooked. Veggies as a side totally overcooked. On the bill several (more expensive) veal cordon bleus instead of pork. For all this failures they didnt even... More

First of all be sure you have a reservation!! Crowded place. We felt a little pressured and the seating comfort is not really high! Anyway, delicious cordon bleu, friendly staff and the food comes quickly!!!
