Delightful meal

We started with a round of oysters and drinks. Excellent selection. Next came a mussels dish specially prepared by the chef. Quite memorable. We each had various main courses, all well prepared and delicious. Wine list is extensive with many wines available by the glass. We were too full for... read more

Each of our party of 4 loved our selections. In particular the oysters (both raw and fried) and the Artic Char were amazing

It took us a week to get a reservation at the time we wanted (juggling kids, babysitter etc). Everything is classy about this place. The waiters were wonderful and nothing was too much trouble. Any allergies? Any requests? Any alterations to the menu - always the same answer - no problem we will make it work. The meal sizes are... More

Was here as part of a group of 12 and loved the decor and buzz in the room. I was warned that it would be pricey, so they're was no sticker shock when I saw the menu. I was prepared to pay the price and was hopeful it would be worth it. Unfortunately it wasn't. While the menu selections were... More

This place is sooo good. I love it. It's class. It's fresh it's my fav spot in Whis. We had a couple of perfectly made martinis !! And I mean perfect. Then I got confused in the prices of the oysters. And didn't realize the price was 16 for 10 I thought it was much more and I only wanted... More

Lovely experience from start to finish. Fantastic wine offerings. Best oysters - hands down - selection and tastes. We also shared the Charcuterie board - all fantastic. Wagyu and bone in rib eyes prepared perfectly. Most definitely a dinner to remember and dream of having again.

Bizarre, cold and unfriendly. Terrible experience and one which we will not attempt again. I am mystified that people like this place.

We got a lovely table in the middle of the dining room surrounded by mostly vacationers as you would expect in Whistler. The service was lovely, but what surprised me was how good the duck breast main course was. The most amazing part was as I was about to state that it was the best duck breast meal I have... More

Unique combination of flavors. Excellent food and wine. They even have a great selection of grappas. John, our waiter was very nice too. Definitely would return and recommend.

We visited Araxi for a family dinner. They have a large meat/fish menu and separate vegetarian menu which you have to ask for. I had the Risotto which was delicious. We also had the Grilled Red Tuna with wild mushroom prawn goyza which was amazing. The Tuna was so fresh and melt in your mouth good. We also had sushi... More
