Even though you may not notice it at first, this restaurant is one of the hidden gems to be found within the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino. The restaurant is located at the entrance to the Casino and what a find!
We had traveled to the Hard Rock with friends of ours to celebrate our son's 16th birthday. We had originally planned to have dinner at the Toro restaurant within the property, but, the night before his birthday we stumbled upon Simon Mansion as we were going into the casino. We went to the staff and asked if we could have a birthday party the next day for 8 people, with the guest of honor being 16. The team showed us to a private room that we would be able to use the next night and with less than 24 hours notice, they were also able to create a birthday cake for him.
The next evening, we came for our dinner and it was WONDERFUL! The private room was great, the perfect setting for a 16 year old's birthday. The service was IMPECCABLE and the food was OUT OF THIS WORLD! We all had appetizers and tried a whole range of entrees, from chicken to steak to lamb. The food was absolutely DELICIOUS! Even all of the sides were wonderful.
For dessert we had the birthday cake, which was delicious and then we also tried the Junk Food platter. Leave room at the end of your dinner for the Junk Food platter. Our 10 year old absolutely loved it. She loved it so much that we went back to other evenings just to dessert, which was of course the Junk Food platter.
You can't believe our surprise when after the meal, the staff told us that they had only been open for 9 days! Great service, wonderful food, super menu after only 9 days, unbelievable.
This place is amazing. If you are in Punta Cana, you have to travel to the Hard Rock Hotel just to have dinner at Simon Mansion.
