We were so impressed with the food that we went back three nights in a row. The menu was creative and we did not repeat a dish so were able to test the breadth of the kitchen's ability. Pricey but definitely must go if you can swing the cost.

Really enjoyed catching up with some friends in the lounge - comfortable ambiance and great cocktail menu. Order their martinis when you're there, you won't regret it!

Not only was the 5-course menu excellent and the service faultless, despite the high quality of the food the price was very affordable due to the anniversary special offer. All in all a memorable experience.

Ordered some kind of mushroom pasta and added on a seared scallop for dinner. Portion was small but quite tasty and well presented. Oysters, lemon tart and non-alcoholic cocktail were good. Staff were mildly polite but lack the warmth, especially the front line staff who showed me to the seat. The serving waiter only warmed up slightly more after the... More

We went here a couple of nights during our stay for oysters, once for the happy hour and once after dinner one night. These oysters were a good size and good price considering we were in Whistler. We ate on the patio under heaters while it rained. It was great and the service was really good!

We just stopped by to have a drink with a local friend. This is one of the old time favorites in Whistler, and has excellent service, and great drinks.

As soon as the waiting staff realised we were not drinking alcohol it was obvious he was not interested. Food very mediocre but very expensive.

We hadn't been to Araxi in several years, but last December we decided to give it a try again. I was sorry we had waited so long! The food here is incredible. My son ordered a steak off the kids menu and I wasn't expecting anything spectacular. We were shocked when it came out with a rainbow of veg and... More

Araxi features oysters from the BC west coast. Our absolute favorite is Kusshi oysters, smaller, deep cup and mild taste. Pair that with Taittinger for fantastic experience. We enjoy small plates to complement oysters such as BC Albacore Tuna Crudo. If you are in Whistler do not miss this place. We live in Whistler and are often at Cocktail Bar... More

My wife has been before and wanted me to go.I would recommend looking at the menu online before hand as there are too many items to choose from. We started with a couple of cocktails that were excellent. My wife had the Truth and Lies I had the Rhubarb Old Fashioned both excellent. I tried 3 Oysters recommended by out... 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. 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.
