The online platform was launched this month by the people behind the prestigious World’s 50 Best Restaurants List.
The website invites visitors to ‘explore the best restaurants and bars around the world’, and the list of outstanding venues is compiled through the The World’s 50 Best annual global voting process from their international network of experts.
The Galway restaurant was honoured alongside other Irish restaurants Chapter One, Patrick Guilbaud, The Greenhouse, Ballymaloe House, Ichigo Ichie, Ox and James St.
JP McMahon, chef-patron of Aniar, said: “We are delighted to be included in the 50 Best Discovery. We pride ourselves on being an international destination for contemporary Irish food in Galway.
“While our food has evolved over the years, our dedication and resolve remains constant – we are passionate about producing a unique experience for our guests and advocating for food from the West of Ireland.
“Well done to all of the other Irish restaurants that are included. It is a great achievement for our little food island.”
