The culinary cornerstone in the heart of Whistler Village, Araxi enjoys a long-held international reputation for excellence in food, wine and hospitality. Executive Chef James Walt celebrates carefully sourced local ingredients from nearby Pemberton Valley farms, where he collaborates frequently with local growers. 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.

Simply amazing!

We had an amazing culinary experience at Araxi. Every bite of every part of the meal from appetizers, mains to desserts were great! If you visit Whistler, do not miss Araxi!

We tried to book a table for three days. Finally we book a table at 5 pm. We went there and get seated right away. The waitress was nice. Food is excellent. We try to book a table again for Saturday but they are full until 10pm.

We dined at Araxi on a Friday evening and had a great meal. The server was great. The menu, although extremely pricey, is varied and we had a fantastic meal. We made reservations two weeks beforehand in order to get in. Great wine selection. A must dine at in Whistler for a high end restaurant!!!

What a fabulous dining experience! It was my beloved's birthday event, and we booked in advance. I asked for a quiet and romantic corner, which was a good thing as the place was busy and happening. We got our spot, by the window in the corner. What can I say?! it was worth every minute, every bite, and every sip.... More

We were lucky to go to Araxi twice and our experience was fantastic each time. Cocktails were delicious...especially the peach sangria's and espresso martini's. All 5 of us indulged and enjoyed a fair part of the menu and all our meals were delicious in taste and presentation.

Don't know what this place is in with £££. We really didn't find that this restaurant was overly expensive. If you love oysters, you'll love this place......neither of us like oysters but the food was still fantastic. Not a huge food menu (we had duck and rabbit) but the wine menu is enormous. The waiter we had was excellent, he... More

The server was very knowledge and helpful. She made sure to answer all our questions. The food presentation was like nothing I had every seen. The food itself was delicious, from the appetizers to the dessert. If travelling to Whistler this restaurant is a must.

Oysters to die for - if your into them of course. I have eaten at the bar (when on my own) and at table. The food is always great and the atmosphere, particularly at the bar, is very social. The staff know their food and are clearly informed about the menu, the sommelier is terrific and advice is well recommended.... More

Wonderful restaurant! Great atmosphere! Good staff. Only caviat is portion size. If you want a hearty large meal be prepared to order extra as portions are petite. Great for me but my husband was left a bit unfull.
