This local restaurant serves very delicious Swiss cuisine with a modern touch (including several vegetarian dishes). On Sunday they additionally offer sunday roast and on monday Wienerschnitzel. The relaxed setting with old wood panels and the very friendly service invites to stay longer and have an easy conversation. We were a group of four and each of us had three... More

Very close to the tram stop near our hotel we stumbled across this place by chance and were happily surprised. The welcome was warm and the food hearty if limited. I enjoyed the pork cordon bleu and the other dishes were well received.

I bought the cordon bleu. At first i thought it was great, but after needing to eat more than just a single bite, i slowly came to the realisation that the food they served was just terrible. Lets start with my meal. It took them about 30-40 minutes to deliver my food (i understand quality takes time...). The meat was... More

Being in Swiss we chose to have a traditional Swiss meal We enjoyed a "geschnetzeltes" of veal with veal kidney. That was superb and so was the rösti that went with it. The "cordon bleu" came in an unusual form. More a ball then flat. But it was made by perfect meat that was cooked juicy and the cheese inside... More

We went to the Hardof with friends we were traveling with because it was close to our hotel and well rated on trip advisor. The two guys had the bratwurst which was very good, but for us spending $31 for one brat and a side was a bit much. The wives had the duck salad. The duck had no flavor... More

This is a nice friendly hotel, across the road from the Mercure Hotel. It has quite a 'buzz', and is very popular with locals. Bookings are advised! Food is good and plentiful, and the service is friendly and attentive. A great local restaurant.

I went in while out on business and just needed a quick meal and I was very surprised and delighted at the high quality of the food and the way it was presented. It is very inexpensive and in general I really expected basic food but it was far from that. A very good experience and I strongly recommend as... More

Really enjoyed the food and service at Hardhof on Sunday night. It's not easy to find a good restaurant open in Zurich on a Sunday - but this one was well worth the tram trip from our hotel. The service was excellent and the 'sunday roast' of deer shoulder was very filling and great flavour. Wasn't cheap, but then nowhere... More
