What I tried:

  • Jerk chicken lunch special, goat curry, roti, Kahlua cake and milo.


  • Finally an authentic Jamaican restaurant in Hamilton from this mother-daughter team!

  • Located next to Vintage Coffee and The Capitol Bar.


  • Nothing major at the moment.

  • There is no tip button when using a card to pay! So make sure to bring cash for tips.

Must Try:

  • The jerk chicken is one of the best I've had. Only $6.99 for their lunch special.

  • Coconut coffee and other drip coffees. (I cannot have caffeine so I did not try it).


  • Friendly and warm. The owners Kristan and mom/chef Yvette were both delightful and very enthusiastic to have opened!

  • Being just the two of them, it takes awhile for your food and drinks to arrive. However, I assure you it is worth the wait.

  • They have gone through a lot to have opened this restaurant and although you might not see this restaurant being promoted anywhere, trust me it does get busy in there!

  • 5/5


  • The lunch special comes with rice and beans, a choice of creamy coleslaw or potato salad, and a choice between Jamaican fried chicken or Jerk Chicken. I picked the Jerk chicken, coleslaw and rice combo. It also comes with a canned drink. Did I mention only for $6.99?!

  • The chicken was cooked to perfection. It was an explosion of flavors and perfect to the taste with the combination of creamy coleslaw and rice.

  • The goat curry and roti was to die for. The most tender pieces of goat with a great curry. Reminded me of my moms cooking.

  • I am very biased when it comes to "Milo" as I grew up drinking it about twice a day. They made the perfect glass of hot milo and it took me back home to Malaysia.

  • The Kahlua cake was moist and very delicious.

  • Pro Tip: Try the in house made hot sauce! Amazing!

  • 5/5


  • Big space with bay windows letting the sun in to this Jamaican restaurant.

  • Do not expect a hipster, minimalist or modern set up as this is a simple restaurant.

  • It has a rustic and cozy island feel to it. Chalk walls and tables with art surround the restaurant.

  • One comfortable couch with a big table to have a great sit down meal.

  • Love and a sense of community is what you feel at Vibez.

  • 5/5


  • Definitely give this place a try! You will not only leave full and happy but also really excited to spread the word to your friends!
