Small place, always full of cordon bleu lovers, locals but tourists too. Two waiters, extremely quick, and very nice. 10 different filling, three shapes, small, medium and extralarge, and a monthly special!

Small warm and cozy place where you can have a nice cordon bleu or a good piece of meat. The service is very nice. We arrived there by chance but it was the best, I will come back for sure! Grazie!

I do love Cordon Bleu and Getrudhof is definitely one of the best Cordon Bleus one can find in Zürich. But I'm definitely not the only one who knows that. And here is the problem and the reason why I can't give five stars. I'm eating Cordon Bleu here for a couple of years now. Over the years they started... More

This is the place to eat Cordon Bleu in the city! Most guests are locals! We go there about once every other month! This place serves about ten different versions of Cordon Bleu! And there is always a special seasonal one! Like a game version in autumn. The food is pretty greasy, but that's how Cordon Bleu has to be!... More

They have so many tasty courdon bleus and they are delicous. It's not a posh place but the service is good and friendly. You should give it a try!

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
