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.

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 but really impressive wine selection. A very memorable meal.

While visiting Whistler's main village, we stopped here for lunch on the patio. What a pleasant experience! We had excellent and friendly service and enjoyed really delicious food. I had a couple of oysters and then the heirloom and burrata cheese salad--perfect! I'd recommend this spot for eating--deserves the high rating it gets.

Absolutely delicious food the meals always are top quality. I have been here 3 separate times and each time have loved it even more! The outside seating is beautiful and in a lovely location. The food is luxurious and not heavy, keep an eye on deals and groupons because that always helps my dinning experience there.

...in a very enjoyable city. We were delighted with a couple of oysters and an impeccable service, followed by a tasteful salmon and scallops.

Great place in Whistler to gather for a nice dinner! The Canadian sirloin and tenderloin steaks were amazing. We also really enjoyed the varíety of oysters, which were fresh and flavorful. The most outstanding thing of all was the service. Our waiter was extremely polite and really made our experience a lot better.
