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. PLEASE NOTE THAT ONLINE RESERVATIONS ARE CURRENTLY AVAILABLE FOR PARTIES UP TO 12 GUESTS. PLEASE CALL THE RESTAURANT TO INQUIRE ABOUT LARGER PARTIES.

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... read more

We took advantage of their 5 course dinner deal for about $35 per person, quite the deal for a fine dining restaurant, we have been here a few times and simply couldn't resist going 3 times during this fall special which was going on in a lot of restaurants in whistler and hope it will be back. First class service... 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.

Make the reservation well ahead.nice and elegant restaurant.good service from start to finish.potatoes accompanied the fish were too much on the oily side.they run out of the wine we have ordered but the waiter recommended really nice replacement instead. You need to be prepared to pay c.200 CAD including 2 starters,mains,1 desert and half bottle of a wine.

We liked Araxi so much that we had dinner there twice on this trip. The menu has a lot of excellent options and we tried completely different things the second time. The oysters were fresh, the venison, duck and rabbit were all great choices. The wine list is very extensive and desserts absolutely amazing - unusual combination of flavors. Overall,... More

Ate a little early for us, but it worked out fine. Make reservations well ahead. Great service, oysters, entree and desert. Artful plates and a venison that you could cut with a fork. Would absolutely return on next visit to Whistler.

We've been to Araxi many times over the years and I always enjoy our dinners there. We went last night midweek and it was bustling but service was very good. We were seated promptly and had a wonderful waiter. We had some questions on the wine list and the sommelier gave us excellent recommendations. Oysters are fabulous as other reviewers... More
