I sat at the bar just as I came into Whistler from Vancouver and Seattle. I ordered a delicious cocktail and dinner and the bar and the service was outstanding.

We've tried to make a reservation on Open Table with no luck. We called the restaurant and got a table-easy. The place is mixed, casual and elegant patrons, the food was delicious. The boys had the kids steak and seared wild scallops while my husband and I had the prawn risotto and duck breast, delicious. The server was knowledgeable and... More

We went to Araxi in June to take advantage of their 35 year anniversary menu which is $35 for a four course meal! My brother and his gf from Ontario enjoyed the dinner so much and it's unbelievable value for one of the top restaurant in Whistler or even in BC!

We took advantage of the price fix menu which surprisingly had something everyone in our group wanted. All of the food was beautifully cooked and very well presented. The cocktails were delicious and not too expensive for a high-end restaurant. The staff were very helpful finding us a table inside when it started to rain and making sure our table... More

Love this restaurant. My favourite when in Whistler. Save it for special occasions and date night with my husband. Service, food, wine and ambience are all wonderful. Makes for a most pleasurable evening or apres ski.

We were a big group for this dinner in the private dining bit. The food was ok but not nearly as good as our last visit. They couldn't quite pull the large numbers off despite a limited menu which was a shame.Still a good restaurant and we will be back next time but with a smaller group!

We were here for Araxi's 34th anniversary and they offered a special menu - unbelievably great value! We had made our reservation and were quickly greeted and shown to our table. Service was outstanding - throughout the whole dinner - our server was helpful, attentive and right on the mark. The special menu offered 5 courses for $34. There was... More

Excellent quality and presentation. Sit on the patio in the summer and enjoy some fresh oysters or seafood tower. Every item on the menu is excellent and won't disappoint!

We didn't have a reservation but snagged two seats at the bar. The bartender greeted us immediately and graciously. We were served by multiple bartenders through the evening, all equally helpful and friendly. EXCELLENT drinks. We did the tasting menu which was pricey but fabulous. Every bite delicious. My husband is still talking about his fish. Stuck with mixed drinks... 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.
