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.

After visiting rimrock cafe, this was a disappointment. Shrimp roll for appetizer just ok. Bread delicious. We had scallops which were tasty and pretty, tuna which was ok. Dessert we shared lemon tart which was ok, room temperature. Service was wonderful. Nothing spectacular, which was to be expected. Would not return.

Having seen it on Hell's Kitchen, I wanted to go and see what it was all about. I wasn't disappointed. Perfect steak, creative sushi...I recommend this place to anyone going to Whistler.

I'm not a big fan of fancy restaurants where the food decoration is a big concern. Araxi is like that. Food is good but not for the price. I had two small pieces of polenta with arugula and a tablespoon of decorative swirl on top served on a painted plate and it was 25.50 before the tax. So to me... More

Ordered a glass of Wine and the barman dumped the Bouquet in my glass. After complaining, the waiter told me that this is normal [sic]. could not finish the glass, paid... More

The both were very good. For main course, my mom had the Wild White Prawn Risotto which she didn't fin particularly good, my dad... More

We ate here for lunch and it was great! A varied menu of super fresh ingredients served in a friendly atmosphere. The prices are also very reasonable for the quality of what you get, roughly $20/person.
