Being from Vancouver, we've eaten at their sister restaurant 'blue water cafe' several times, so we came in with high expectations. We were not disappointed. Service and food were excellent, fantastic drink selection, and a great atmosphere. As we were here in the shoulder season, it was busy, but not packed. Personally got the Tenderloin steak while the wife had... More

Visited Araxi about a year ago and the meal and ambience was very memorable. I like to revisit to see if it was just the wine or what so we dropped in again. Great and deep wine list so we sat at the bar prior and enjoyed a nice Mendocino Zin. The meal was once again very memorable. I ordered... More

One of the top restaurants in Whistler. Expect fresh and local food. Menu Changes depending on what is in season. The place to eat and drink wine if you are in town. Servers with clean white aprons so you know what to wear there although this is Whistler so don't be surprised to see fleece and flip flops.

Restaurant is well recommended by all local Hotels. They even have their own cookbooks. The service was very good, atmosphere very nice , presentation excellent but the food was nothing out of the ordinary that you could say, "I must go back". We've traveled all over the world and really was looking for the wow effect and didn't find it...... More

The food was tasty but the portions were small. I left feeling unsatisfied after having a main course and dessert.

Our family of twelve enjoyed a wonderful dinner in celebration of Thanksgiving. The food and service were beyond excellent. I recommend Araxi to anyone who enjoys a wonderful dining experience. I know that we will definitely be returning.

Lovely meal here, staff were great & food top class. There weren't many restaurants open in October which I've not seen in other top tourist places around the world , that half the town closes down, so we're relived to find a really good restaurant

We reserved a few days ahead for a group. The service was adequate wine glasses not filled; we got up and served our selves a few times. But the icing on the cake was 50% of my group received their meals 20 minutes ahead other half. When speaking to the maître d' we had zero compassion or understanding. Very poor... More

The culinary cornerstone in the heart of Whistler Village, Araxi enjoys a long held international reputation for excellence in food, wine and hospitality. As an early pioneer of farm to table dining, Executive Chef James Walt's seasonally focused menus celebrate the excellence of locally sourced ingredients. Walt's innovative and skillfully executed dishes-from savoury starters through delicious desserts-deliver intelligent compositions and unforgettable flavours. Centrally located in the main square of the village, Araxi boasts a contemporary dining room coloured in warm earth tones - and a sleek Oyster Bar that exudes the passion and craftsmanship that lie at the heart of the restaurant. The lively lounge, which features a year-round indoor/outdoor bar, is Whistler's favourite gathering place for both locals and visitors alike.
