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.

If you are staying in the Village and don't want to make the trek to the Rimrock, this is the next best. Excellent menu and wine list. Local ingredients are featured.

For a party of 8, Araxi staff were very attentive, the food was outstanding and the service was beyond compare.

Thanks to Restaurant Manager Pat and our server Ben.

Araxi is a popular spot for locals and visitors, especially in the summer. Be prepared to find the outdoor patio busy.

The dishes are some of the finest you will find dining-out in Whistler Village. If you're looking for innovative menu choices, accompanied with nice wine selections, you've come to the right place.

The staff provided impeccable service throughout the night, an all-around fabulous dining experience. Highly recommend Araxi for an exceptional meal, whether you sit outside, at the bar, or in the dining area of the restaurant.

Creative, fresh, locally sourced, delicious.....We're "locals" and have been dining in Whistler for years and Araxi is definitely near, if not at, the top of Whistler's dining establishments. Araxi is part of the toptable group that includes the excellent Blue Water Cafe in Vancouver. Enjoyed their beet salad, beef tartar with truffle fries this Friday past with La Stella rose - fantastic!

We've always wanted to go to this restaurant so made a point of it this trip. The food was ok, expected more for the price; our server was great and the martini's were good.
