Oysters with fresh grated horseradish were delicious. Small plates are on the large size but the BC Albacore Tuna + Salmon Chirashi was fantastic. Great flavour. Arctic char main was also excellent. Service friendly and efficient.

My friend and I had dinner here last week and we had a fantastic time. We had a 5 course dinner with wine pairing. It took us 4 hours to finish this dinner but we enjoyed every minute of it! Our server was very prompt in serving us our dishes, detailed in his explanation of our courses and attentive to... More

A busy restaurant is generally an example of top service, food, etc. Our initial impression of Araxi's was well founded. Great friendly service from arrival at reception to conclusion of our meal. Menu can be considered unusual, especially if a visitor to Whistler. Friendly waitress explained ingredients of our intended selections and we were delighted with the meal. Different and... More

This is a serious restaurant in all aspects...food, plating, presentation and service. That being said, it certainly is not for everyone. Although I did see families present there are few selections to please a screaming toddler, nor would this crowd appreciate such. I had a mushroom polenta as I was not ravenous, and it turned out to be a great... More

Absolutely brilliant food. Great wine. Amazing seafood platter, which simply couldn't be fresher. Some really original dishes with very friendly waiters to match. Great place!

In the heart of the village, sit outside if weather permits. Food is great. Don't miss the salmon / crab wrap appetizer .

My 17 year old and I went here for dinner. We sat outside and enjoyed the square and the great weather. We had great service and great food. The rabbit and the dick breast were amazing. Great location and great food.

The brunch was so delicious, we visited again the next day! A perfect people-watching patio with a mix of sun and shade. Highly recommend the ricotta pancakes and the eggs florentine!

We just happened to end up at Araxi's. But we had a great evening. Starting with very fine oysters and a nice glass of a local BC Pinot Gris. The combination of the rabbit with the Erdinger Weissbier was delicious. And the lemontart the best we ever had. You have to keep a sharp eye on the pricelist but in... More
