A Cozy Nook

There are several classic Hungarian (and Germanic) entrees on the menu. I ordered the schnitzel which was a bit dry but still tasty.

Service is very good and the décor what one might expect in a smaller town. A cozy nook and a good place to relax and enjoy some home cooking in the middle of a busy metropolis.

We were there for dinner with friends and loved the food and the great service. I tried the beef stew with pasta and feta sauce and was just delicious! Thank you!

My husband goes to Jonas regularly for lunch (reservations recommended) so when we went for dinner, I was surprised seating was available tight away. I am undecided about Jonas. The restaurant is long and narrow with the only windows being at the front. One person's cozy is another person's dark and claustrophobic. The restaurant is decorated with traditional embroidery hangings... More

big portion, taste OK probably adjust to canadians. I had potato pancake with beef goulash. The meat was tender, pancake was just average. The biggest surprise was frozen veg- big no and the price. $21 per meal not worth the money.

Coming from a European back ground I expected better. My wife had the cabbage rolls and they were dry and not great I had the beef in a potato pancake with reheated frozen mixed vegetables. You would think that your side dish didn't come from a bag. I don't no what all the great reviews are about but I won't... More

A friend suggested I try this place. Being European myself it seemed to be a good bet. Reviews on several sites were mostly 5 stars and you can't find anyone who says anything bad about them. We were greeted and seated right away and the atmosphere is cozy. I had the beef stew with pasta, feta cheese and dill. You... More

The service and delicious food are just two of the reasons that Jonas has survived so many years at the edge of dowtown Calgary. We attended on a Tuesday night (6:30 pm) and were able to park right in front of the restaurant along 6th Ave SW - otherwise you have to park on 9th St , with a little... More

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.
