I gave Hovan ๐ŸŒŸ๐ŸŒŸ๐ŸŒŸ for average because this review system isn't broken up into restaurant genres. It is very good though and we would certainly go back. I had a gyro, Greek salad, & Fava beans. All tasted great and were prepared with love.

I am a sucker for Middle Eastern food, so it's no surprise I left here happy. The service was incredibly good; we were offered samples of hummus, tabbouleh, and baba ganoush to help us make up our minds. I got the falafel sandwich, which was amazing, as was the baba ganoush side. My husband was less than impressed with his... More

Centrally located in the 5 Points, Hovan offers a variety of tasty Mediterranean options in a casual atmosphere. I've gone to Hovan several times and have never been disappointed. The customer service is excellent. The prices are very reasonable. There are several vegetarian options, which is a rare and nice treat for me as long time vegetarian.

Located in the Five Points this restaurant always has great food and friendly service. Their hummus is some of the best in JAX and all their entrees are top notch. I especially love the moussaka!

Have eaten here and loved the food. Wanted to go for dinner on Saturday, January 3rd 2014 for dinner. Went online about 9 pm to check days and hours of operation. Hours on their website said 10am-10pm for Saturdays. My husband, daughter and I drove over, got there around 9:20pm, lights were on "OPEN" sign was lit up, so we... More

Fast, easy and healthy with a smile from the owners who also tend to serve during busy lunch hours. They have amazing varieties of greek salads, wraps and more. Most combo meals include a wrap of your choice, 2 sides, pita chips and a drink for $8.00. Enjoy!

I have visited Hovan with family and friends numerous times in the past couple of years. Not only are the staff very friendly; but the atmosphere is very relaxing. There are seating outside or inside. Since it is located at the Historic 5 points, I recommend sitting outside on nice days. There's a lot to see while eating while your... More

My mom and I stopped here for an early dinner during a day trip to Jacksonville. It is nothing fancy - the decor is simple, the food is served fast-food style (not formal sit-down), and the menu is basic Mediterranean fare. But the food tastes SO good. Everything is super fresh and loaded with flavor. The tomatoes taste like they... More

I discovered Hovan Rolls in Atlanta at Lenox Mall back in the late 80's-early 90's. I have been a fan ever since. However, they don't have any restaurants close to me so when I saw that Jacksonville has a Hovan Mediterranean restaurant I was so excited. This one will not disappoint. You must try the Vegetarian Hovan Roll. I've tried... More

Great place for gyros and humus. All the food that I have gotten from them has been really good. Nice little sitting space out front to eat and people watch.
