We Loved Cocodimama Restaurant - Food and View

Cocodimama - View of Exuma Sound
We ate three times at the charming resort Cocodimama on Alabaster Bay one mile south of Governor's Harbour airport. We were there twice for dinner and once for lunch. Everything we had there was great.
Our first dish was a "prosciutto (ham) with melon" appetizer, except that this was a very non-standard version (at least in our experience). Both the (imported) prosciutto and the (local) melon were delicious. What was unusual in our experience was that the melon was sliced as thin as the prosciutto. And it was a very generous portion. This was a "special"... not on the regular menu.
Another night, we had the Italian meats and cheese platter. This, I think, is an appetizer from their main menu. We were served a large wooden board generously covered with about five types of ham and other cured meats, plus several cheeses, some good olives and an "onion marmalade". We took some home with us to leave room for the main course.
We had two pasta dishes. One was the simplest possible pasta with tomato sauce. The other a seafood pasta. Each night, we split one of these dishes as our main course. The pasta (imported) was absolutely perfectly cooked and both sauces were excellent.
For lunch, we chose the simple hamburger and fries ... and very good it was.
Prices, both here and at other restaurants on Eleuthera, were similar to what we would typically pay for a similar restaurant at home (Connecticut, USA). Wine was more expensive and a poorer selection, which again we found was true everywhere on the island. We are not complaining. It is a price worth paying for drinking our wine in balmy weather overlooking the Caribbean in December.
Service and the general atmosphere were friendly, helpful and efficient. As far as we are concerned, Cocodimama was the best restaurant in town.
