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.

Araxi is a must stop while in Whistler for my husband and I. This visit was no exception. Fantastic service and attention to our needs. We ordered way too much food, but couldn't stop eating because everything was so delicious. Seafood tower is a must, and their venison is so tender and juicy.

Every time we come to Whistler we are at the bar within half an hour of arrival! We especially like the apres ski menu from 3-5 and always order the oysters which are always fresh and delicious, the charcuterie board that is our personal favorite, and their delicious truffle fries!
It's got a nice atmosphere and the cocktails and service are top couldn't ask for more.
I'd like more steak options for dinner, other than that prepare to enjoy a great meal every time!

What a gem of a place! From start to finish, the hospitality, service, presentation and food were Michelin level! How fortunate to have such an outstanding team of chefs and wait staff at a ski resort. Everything was delicious, we can’t wait to return for another magical evening!

Our honey moon celebration dinner. Absolutely amazing food and service. Our server i think, tessa was her name. Short dark curlier hair with bangs (we told her about our dog Walt, just want to make sure she gets kudos) she was one of the best servers we have ever had! Will be back for sure!

Rude hostesses, 1.25 hour seating after reservation, courses poorly timed, food cold upon arrival, unattentive server, terrible experience overall. 7th visit to this restaurant and was sorely disappointed!

Araxi is almost an icon in Whistler. In a great position, the service never disappoint and the food has maintained its high standard in the past 20+ years we have been visiting Whistler. The seafood platter as a shared appetizer is well worth trying & reasonably priced. We had 6 adults & 2 children in our party & we had a mix of meat & seafood mains which were all well presented & inventive in flavour.

Excellent well prepared food. The service is outstanding. It’s fairly pricey but the quality of the food makes it worthwhile.

Great experience overall. Service was impeccable. Accommodated our 8 month old and made our dinner experience enjoyable and easy. Beef tartare was chewy and Burrata average but the oysters delicious and the trout outstanding.
