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.

This was a last minute unplanned decision but a great result, in this area the rest is frozen American style, this is Spanish and traditional- loved it. Service second to none, including their recommendations- best strawberries ever! Steak and homemade chips amazing and seafood platter out of this world.

Really friendly people serving great food, really loved this place! We had two fresh fish/seafood platters and they were fabulous. Would have no hesitation in recommending a visit here.

We had a very enjoyable meal at this restaurant which was recommended by our hotel. As it was our first night in Mallorca, we were keen to try some authentic seafood paella and the food did not disappoint. The group at the table next to us ordered a variety of seafood which also looked very appealing. The waiter was very... More

The staff were very welcoming and the manager/owner ? shook all our hands . The service was excellent and the food was mostly good - 2 of our party said the venison was... More

This restaurant is a 5 min walk from the port in Palma de Mallorca, it is very good and a couple doors down was a store for camera/cell phone needs (batteries, chargers). We had octopus that was better then the renown "Galacian" octopus of Vigo, Spain. We also had paella seafood prawns which was so-so. They were very accommodating as... More

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
