Strange creatures of the island ... estranhas criaturas da ilha

This photos were taken in a very interesting restaurant in the north of Florianopolis, in Sambaqui, a beach facing the continent. It is decorated with a lot of creatures from Florianopolis folklore, as the witch and others (Maricota, Bernuncia, Boi-de-mamao) which in other oportunity i´ll explain here. The restaurant, called Recanto Restinga, is specialized in seafood and has a wonderful view, besides the great musician that usually is there playing songs inspired in Florianopolis´ culture.

Estas fotos foram tiradas num restaurante muito interessante no norte de Florianopolis, em Sambaqui, uma praia voltada para o continente. Foi decorado com algumas criaturas do folclore de Floripa, como a bruxa e outros (Maricota, Bernuncia, Boi-de-mamao) que em outra oportunidade vou explicar melhor. O restaurante, chamado Recanto Restinga, e especializado em frutos do mar e tem uma linda vista, alem de um excelente musico que geralmente toca cançoes inspiradas na cultura de Florianopolis.

  4. Looks like a good place to eat good and have a laugh with these "mythical characters". It is a good idea to be spread in other cities.

  7. Great figures, would love to sit in that restaurant. The first one seems to be the witch fromt he fairytale "Snow White", where she hands the apple to the girl that falls in deep sleep.

    Isn't that first witch the one in Walt Disney's version of Snow White? She used to give me nightmares when I was a kid!

    There is an article about it in French:
