Definitely recommend the 3 course meal and matching wines. Atmosphere was great, service was well timed. All meals were served at the same time. Our party of four all enjoyed the taste sensation

Delicious cocktails and great oyster special before 5pm. Bartenders are attentive and know their menu inside and out. Cheese plate was simple, but well put together. Great spot for spending the afternoon!

Fabulous oysters at really good prices (10 oysters for $18). we sat with two pisco sours and demolished 30 oysters between the two of us. For oyster lovers this is as close to heaven as it gets .

Hello, Will there be a Thanksgiving dinner available during US Thanksgiving? If so, what will it entail? Thanks

Response from Dan468 | Reviewed this property |
Most countries do not celebrate foreign holidays. Just as it is unlikely to find a Thanksgiving dinner in the US on the Canadian holiday, the same is true in reverse.
Is there a 5 coarse meal special and what are the choices?

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.
