Being of Hungarian heritage, I am very happy that this restaurant is in business in Calgary. The food here reminds me so much of the great dinners that I enjoyed as I grew up in the wilds of Toronto. The place is a little small, so reservations should be made for the peak dinner times on Fridays and Saturdays. Service... More

I have been going to Jonas for years and the food has always been excellent. It is owned and run by a husband and wife with him in the kitchen and her out front. They are very nice and friendly people and it adds to the ambience. The food is Hungarian comfort food and they do a very good job... More

I love this kind of Slavic food and wasn't disappointed by this place. Cabbage rolls are to die for, as is the goulash. Not a fancy place by any means and off the beaten track. Still, I recommend this restaurant.

Yes, you will get an authentic hungarian food but dont be fooled. We went to Calgary with my husband to celebrate our wedding anniversary and as we have hungarian ancestors we decided to celebrate it in Jonas. When we arrived we've beed told we have to order fast cos the kitchen is closing in 15 mins. So we ordered in... More

Excellent food, will definitely go back next time I'm in Calgary. Tried the chicken paprikash, one of my favorite childhood dishes, and it didn't disappoint. My whole family loved it as well. We also shared a beef stew with egg drop noodle, and it was also wonderful. They close fairly early, so we ordered it to go; kitchen closes at... More

Restaurant is located in downtown Calgary on 6 Ave near 9 Street. It is quite small with many nice and typical Hungarian decorations all over the walls. The Hungarian couple who owns and runs it is very nice and friendly, always ready to help and smile. The food is great! The menu contains typical Hungarian cooking and the portions are... More

Had dinner tonight and it was the best food I've had in a long time. Wonderful crispy pork schnitzel and Mushroom Paprikash with dumplings. OMG!!! Everything was so good and we shared each others dishes. Dessert was 2 light crepes filled with sweetened cottage cheese. A perfect ending to a perfect meal! If you like Eastern European food, check this... More

First let me say I've never been to Hungary but I know that I'd like the food if it's anything like that we had at Jonas. We went for an early supper and we got quick and friendly service. one of our group has been to Hungary and said we got food that was very similar to that in Budapest... More

My first tripadvisor review, couldn't hold it back after my experience tonight. I am in the middle of moving to Calgary from Ottawa and am completely unfamiliar with local restaurants. I was searching for a good restaurant on the net and came across Jonas' at downtown Calgary. Reservation and service was friendly and bilingual (English and Hungarian), food was fantastic.... More

As close to home as it gets. I travel a lot, but when in Calgary I always make a point of dining here. The food, decor and being able to hear and speak Hungarian thrills me to no end. I had the Cucumber salad( Uborka Saláta) Chicken paprikash with homemade noodles. (Csírkepaprikás Nokedlíval) Portions are large and I never think... More
