Description: The culinary cornerstone in the heart of Whistler Village, Araxi enjoys a long-held international reputation for excellence in food, wine and hospitality.

His seasonally rotating menus also feature the freshest seafood catches direct from the Pacific Ocean. The dining room resonates with lively ambiance enhanced with fresh flowers and original works of art. The adjoining Bar is the mountain’s popular gathering place for locals and visitors, and in the summer season the patio is the nexus of Whistler’s village life, wrapped by stunning mountain vistas.

Dined here last night- such beautifully prepared food and so delicious. The salmon starter was melt in your mouth and the scallop main divine. Coupled with exemplary service this restaurant is a must visit in Whistler.

We spent the day in Whistler and had lunch here, outside. Our waitress was lovely and because it was cold brought out a shawl and put the heater on for us. We had delicious duck buns, so tasty, but the portion was small and the waitress agreed with us. The boys had large salads with lobster and tuna, that they... More

Araxi seems to be the go-to place in Whistler, so naturally we had to try it. Our first experience was for a late lunch on the patio. This was after 3pm, so they were only serving a limited bar menu. No matter, we made a great meal of fresh oysters, jumbo shrimp scampi, truffle fries, and a cheese plate. Everything... More

I heard about Araxi a long time ago from Gordon Ramsay's Hell's Kitchen. Been wanting to try it and when we were at Whistler on Canada Day, my brother suggested that we have lunch there. We did not have any reservations and we were just in our shorts and Canada t-shirts being Canada Day but the staff was very accomodating... More

Was here last Christmas. They have an oyster special going at 3pm everyday. Be sure to line up early for that. It was an amazing deal and long line up. You won't get in if you don't line up early, at least half an hour before.The oyster schuckers were great and very friendly. We had a great time there. Service... More

Whistler seems like a nice place until you spend $150 CAN on lunch and get truly awful service as we did. The food was good, not great! But the server did not know the menu or the wine list. But then, she was not a true restaurant professional; just another backpacking Aussie that Whistler seems to attract! Too bad she... More
