. I come from a family where gastronomy has always been important. Please post a video of Sonja Kirchberger. How important is the wine list for you? The Austrian actress Sonja Kirchberger can tell you a thing or two about it. Fifty per cent of the clientele are now Spanish, the rest a mixture of Germans, Brits and Scandinavians. As long as I can cover my costs with my income, everything´s fine. I am really proud to have such professional and enthusiastic staff.
Let´s be honest: Don´t many clients come to Ca´n Punta because of its famous owner? I want to take my guests on a culinary journey. Sonja Kirchberger Photo Gallery No Photos Found. To start with you have to be good at maths. Other than that I want to spend as much time as possible on Mallorca. The dishes play the leading parts. Ca´n Punta has become an essential part of my life.
So you did not become a restaurant owner because you were bored? For example, from the Wiener Schnitzel to the Peruvian ceviche. The star of the restaurant is definitely the cuisine. The menu is not very extensive. When I took over the location in September 2014, it was a tapas bar. However, changes also release new energies. Before we changed the concept last March, the restaurant was mainly frequented by German residents and holiday-home-owners. Next year we will also add selected German and Chilean wines.
Believe me: Just because of a prominent name you will not be successful as a gastronome. What is the concept behind it? And every day is a new staging on a plate. All dishes are freshly prepared, nothing is cooked for storing. Soon I will be in front of the camera again for a detective story in Vienna. Sounds like it has all gone pretty smoothly.
What does it take on this island to be successful in the long term? Everybody should feel comfortable here. I, personally, not only cook a lot, I am also a passionate hostess. The change from the tapas bar to a port restaurant was a process which was kind of a shock to many of my loyal customers. Regarding my work as an actress, I have set myself a limit: two or maximum three productions per year. Does this mean a special invitation to vegetarians? It was important for me to be able to let my creativity shine in this place.
Human beings are creatures of habit, so a radical change of concept is hard to accept. I am still in the set-up phase with my restaurant. I carried on with the same concept until the end of the season, but was ready to beat a new path this year. Clichés are like chocolate stains.

Are you regretting your decision to become one of many restaurant owners on Mallorca, now that a year has passed? You don´t have to dress up either to go to Ca´n Punta. I still have so many ideas which I would love to implement here. I offer almost exclusively Spanish and Austrian labels. Time to draw up an interim balance sheet. I would always do it again; in spite of the fact that a lot has changed during the past year in Ca´n Punta. Ca´n Punta is now a port restaurant with its very own character.
Some maybe come because they are curious, but not more than once; if they return it´s definitely because they liked the food. You offer a lot of dishes without meat. Everybody is welcome, both guests with a small budget, as well as guests looking for discerning, gastronomical cuisine. Small restaurants and large menus do not go well together in my opinion anyway. And the team is super-important.
It has to identify itself 100% with the restaurant and the concept. . . . . . .
