Description: Rififi started in 1960, located five minutes from the main Palma harbour and remaining always in the same address since its beginnings As a family tradition, this is the third generation managing the restaurant since it started more than half a Century ago. We are proud to be one of the top (if not the best) of Mallorcas restaurants in terms of seafood, shellfish, lobster and Spanish/Mediterranean cuisine. The combination of having the finest products served with extreme profesionalism in a relaxed atmosphere and all this done with a very flexible price, has been our secret to continously succeed in customer satisfaction.

Opposite Palma's main shopping mall rather than in centre. Not a tourist trap at all. Welcome is warm. Owner takes great care with recommendations and stopped us over ordering - a rare quality. Food and interior probably haven't changed from the 60's. Grouper finished with pine nuts, currants, spinach and garlic was excellent. Home made desserts which were good. Follow... More

We went here as we were staying nearby and had read other positive reviews on Tripadvisor. We weren't disappointed! Staff were friendly and attentive. Explained the menu well. I had the mixed fish , which on this day was cod, hake and gruplo. It also came with prawns, mussels and squid. Delicious. The cod was more salty than I'm used... More

This is one of the oldest fish restaurants in Mallorca. The food is always perfect. The staff is attentive and professional. We have been coming here since 1988 and have never been disappointed. Try 'la barca' or the 'arroz caldoso'

I enjoyed some really nice dishes here, the bill was incorrect and when I pointed out I didn't have the pan ni aperitif, the waiter argued that this charge also included the price of the tablecloth..... Nonesense !!! Bad front of house management to an otherwise nice place

The best food I have ever tasted anywhere in Spain. Fresh and innovative menu which was tailored to our requests. The owners/staff could not have been more attentive and every course was superb. Have returned now on two occasions and have had fabulous evening each time. YOU MUST try it. Ps the house wine was excellent value.

We ended up in this restaurant following the suggestion of the receptionist at our hotel which is reasonably close to it (BQ Augusta Apartments). The restaurant has a "nautical" theme, a very good atmosphere and the service is excellent. There were between one and two waiters at all times for each table, very scrupulous and careful to all your needs.... More

Nice Restaurant, good service offered by workers proud of their job and fresh sea food in a wide range of dishes. Well worth the money, not too expensive for the experience. Paella is very good but i suggest to book it in advance.

We were recommended restaurant Rififi by hotel reception and also the local english speaking supermarket owner. The fish in the the display refrigerated cabinet looked old with glazed eyed instead of shiny ones. At that stage we should have left and gone elsewhere but with recommendations and the restaurant owner promising us something special. One of the worst meals I've... More
