Araxi is home to the best cuisine in Whistler. Renowned executive chef James Walt has been celebrating seasonal, locally sourced ingredients for years, drawing upon the rich offerings of the nearby Pacific Ocean, Canadian ranches and the organic farms in the Pemberton area just north of Whistler.

The décor is sleek and upscale, and the menu boasts an astounding selection of oysters, featuring at least a dozen different types from the chilly waters of Washington State and British Columbia. The raw bar and sushi/sashimi offerings, like BC wild sockeye salmon sashimi with ponzu sauce, are equally impressive.

The presentation of such appetizers as butternut squash soup with curry oil is dazzling. Main dishes could include a lightly gingered duck breast or an organic white prawn risotto. Order a side of the truffle fries, and leave room for the sublime desserts. The award-winning wine list tops 50 pages, and features some unforgettable Old and New World classics. Although any Whistler restaurant will have families dining together, Araxi is really better for an adults-only dinner.
