It is fantastic to have a world class wine list in Whistler after a long day of skiing. Better to Marry it to excellent local dishes - Like the venison. Truffle fries were very good as well. When we requested a customized pasta - the chef accommodated without hesitation. Extraordinary place.

If you are in Whistler, please try to visit Araxi! Lovely atmosphere, imaginative food and an excellent wine list! The service is also exceptional!

In the heart of the village, very nice vibe with a good wine list. Expensive but good value. Fresh oysters a specialty and well worth trying a sampling from around the area.

Vegetable starters a highlight e.g. the beet salad and the soup. Pricing is not all that much higher than the typical Whistler venue and so represents good value as... More

We shared the two tier seafood to start and shared another fish dish for the main. Both dishes were lovely. Make sure to book ahead otherwise the wait can be over an hour.

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.
