Fantastic new grill restaurant. Decorated like an American bistro, everything was cheaper than I expected; Verve Clique champagne at around €40, a good choice of wine similarly priced.
The food, the important bit, was superb. They have an America grill which chargrills the steaks and chops, both of which are delicious. You have to order your sides, of which there's a decent range. I had the creamed spinach - perfect, and a portion of the best chips in Ireland. For dessert they encourage you to try a selection of different, small desserts, each for €2. We were not disappointed.
The restaurant stays open late - we arrived at half eight and didn't leave until one in the morning. We weren't the last to go.
The staff were excellent, particularly the impressively tall and friendly Rory, who informed me they are planning a small portion menu - like tapas but a bit more substantial, and a lunch menu.
Easily one of the best restaurants in Limerick and very good value for what you get, the Hamptons is worth a trip nearly on its own.
