We went here two nights because we could eat everything we wanted to try in just one visit. The food was beautifully plated and flavor a were amazing. Even their cocktail menu had unique creations and the two we tried were very good. We ate at the bar one of the nights and the bartenders Erica and Tommy were so... More

We had an excellent meal here and the service was very good. It was expensive so not an every day option. Although stylish and beautiful here people don't dress for dinner as seems to be the case all over Whistler. Menu choice was small but everything so delicious and beautifully presented. Lovely sitting outside on a heated terrace and blankets... More

We had a table of 6. And to our dismay thr service was lacking. We were there for a while however our server barely came by. Our dishes took way too long and so did clearing of our dishes. His personality was lack luster. We certainly don't come to Araxi to expect this. The manager was however kind. I would... More

Came here for the happy hour and it's worth it. I love the fresh oysters and truffle fries! The service is quite slow when taking orders and the bill. I love the idea that they separated the fine dining from the bar. Maybe i'll come back again.

Had dinner here last night on a recommendation from a friend. Great location in the busy and energetic Olympic village. We had a couple of great cocktails at the bar-you can sit in or outside. We ended up staying there for our meal as we enjoyed our bartender Simon. They serve delicious truffled popcorn with drinks. We then split a... More

We had dinner at Araxi and everything was fantastic, from the arrival to finalizing the bill. The food was brilliant; fresh, clean, beautifully presented, but most of all really really tasty. The service was excellent, very attentive without be intrusive. Yes, this restaurant is a bit pricey, but it's definitely worth it. Highly recommended.

Recommended by a friend, and it was fantastic!! The service was good, although it was early so she only had 2 tables. The food was truly delicious! We had oysters to start, the scallops and steak for dinner and shared Black Forest cake for desert. Absolutely impeccable, so well presented, ample serving size entrees and beyond words delicious! However, it's... More

This is a hard visit to rate. I'm not one to trash a place if after 5 great meals then my peas are sort of cold. (If they have the gall to actually serve me peas.) We ordered the $89 fixed menu. The Albacore Tuna - fabulous! Crispy Pemberton Squash Blossoms - insanely great. Then we wait. And wait. And... More

My boyfriend & I booked a table here after hearing great reviews. I was really disappointed all round. 1. At the prices you are paying I would have expected a wine waiter & food waiter. 2. As a vegetarian I can't abide restaurants that have one token vegi dish... Araxi had just that in the main section. 3. The food... More

We were hosted at a business dinner in a special room and were served a treat. The service was excellent and the food delicious. I think the halibut I had was one of the best pieces of fish I have ever had (flakey, delicate, seasoned just right) and the salads and vegetable were a great compliment. This is well worth... More

Description
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.

The lively lounge, which features a year-round indoor/outdoor bar, is Whistler's favourite gathering place for both locals and visitors alike.
