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.

Started out great. Ended horribly.

Great somellier. Super service oriented. We were expecting a great evening.

Had to find waiter after waiting ONE HOUR for our main course. When he arrived befuddled he asked if we wanted our main dishes served together. UM. YES please.

10 minutes later food arrived. Cold. Scallops over salted. Venison mealy And cold.

Somellier was kind and offered us a complimentary glass of wine and dessert. That made it a bit better but still a sad end to the evening overall not great experience.

The food here is usually one of the best in Whistler. Still is. It’s a bit on the expensive side but well worth it. The wine list is deep and there are some gems in there as well as some outrageously overpriced. The food was surprisingly being served a tad slow this year (the waiting staff were very attentive though) which I found slightly unacceptable given the amount you pay for service here. We sat for at least 20 minutes after our order was taken before the fresh oysters were served. By that time, I was buzzing a bit since there was nothing else except the bottle of wine. I’d say twice slower than their normal pace. We eat here every year. The group had just taken over and reopened IL Camineto and perhaps the kitchen staff got thinned out a bit. Nevertheless, I highly recommend eating here when in Whistler. The seafood is so fresh and outstandingly prepared.

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!

We have dined here on several occasions and it still is our favourite restaurant in Whistler.
Food is always outstanding and the servers are always very friendly. Don’t hesitate recommending this restaurant.
