From high-end restaurants to casual eateries, the options are abundant. 

No visit to Whistler is complete without going to Araxi Restaurant + Oyster Bar for a memorable meal. Chef James Walt works with local farmers and producers to bring nothing but the best to Araxi's seasonal menu. This fine-dining restaurant is the perfect spot for a romantic dinner or celebration.
