Cava Restaurant: 53 Lower Dominick Street. Galway Tartare EatGalway

Aniar is a terroir based restaurant located in Galway’s West End. The word terroir is usually associated with wine-making: the combination of factors, including soil, climate, and environment, that gives a wine its distinctive character. In the case of our restaurant, we use the word in order to describe the way in which our food comes from the specific place that is Galway and the west of Ireland. We hope to reveal the distinct and various food stuffs that make up our particular landscape, through our farms, the wildlands and the shores that surround us. The natural course of the seasons will dictate our ever-changing and evolving menu.

Owned and operated by JP McMahon and Drigín Gaffey, who also own Cava Bodega and Tartare Café + Wine Bar, Aniar was awarded a Michelin Star for 2013 - 2019. This supreme culinary achievement recognises the restaurant's effort to pursue innovation through the prism of traditional techniques of preservation.

Aniar also runs a Boutique Cookery School. The School offers one-day workshops as well as six-week classes. The classes run by JP McMahon offer both demonstrations and hands-on experience. Click on the link below for more information.
