Cuisine: International, Share Plates, Tapas/Small Plates
Price Point: Mains from $25 - $35

Tucked away in Westfield Albany, All Day Trader enjoys glorious sunshine on their spacious patio; settle yourself in for a solid session of people watching! Its chilled café vibe makes it an excellent getaway from the city, while still being right in the centre.

Their small plates are fresh and vibrant. How about a prawn kokoda or sliced tuna poke to start? Their mains are slightly less elegant, with sticky harissa lamb ribs and crispy skin free-range chicken for a messy (but delicious) display. Stick to the pork belly slices or bavette steak if you want your shirt to come out the same colour.

There’s a large selection of wines but if you want to add some pop, go for a cocktail, all of which are bursting with zingy flavours like strawberry, orange, grapefruit and lemon. Summer, is that you?

Excellent service, very attentive waitress, friendly, knew her menu well. We ordered sharing platters (small ones) and everything was beyond delicious, particularly the Cauliflower dish!! Will definitely go again and reccommend to all.

Excellent service (totally above & beyond) and delicious food. There's something on the menu for everyone. I was a bit worried about whether it would be kid friendly for my 3-year-old, but they had a great kid's menu and offered suitable seating straight off the bat. (Also, the pasta from the kid's menu looked so good that I was tempted to steal it.) Will absolutely go back.

Delicious first time dining at All Day Trader, perfect for an after work drink with colleagues or intimate dinner. Great venue, awesome music, and indoor outdoor flow made the space really welcoming and inviting. Food was delicious, and came to the table quickly. Those string fires doused in Parmesan - heaven!

Had a girls catch up after the Christmas madness here with my 2 little girls. Got a great booth seat perfect for us very clean & elegant. Was greeted with a warm welcoming by manager on duty (waitress could smile more only negative). My girls got given a drawing pack great accompany to our start to keep girls entertained). We both ordered the Steak & you won't be disappointed if your wanting meat this is sure satisfying & fulling (meatasaurous). I got the girls a kids plater great display of veges, bread,cheese & meat. Also ordered the caramel smoothie & a cocktail all delicious. My friend ordered a peach salad very generous & vibrant ticked all the boxes. Will be back again highly recommend for a great meal out

I ordered the Korean Fried Cauliflower, a bowl of shoestring fries and Buttermilk Fried Chicken to share between two and the Bavette Steak as a main followed by the creme brulee.
Cauliflower is a pretty bland sort of vegetable but All Day Trader manages to turn it into an utter mouth party with their Korean Fried Chicken.
The Buttermilk Fried Chicken is also superb - tender, moist and very, very tasty with subtle yet effective seasoning.
The shoestring fries we had alongside a bowl of shoestring fries. They are served sprinkled with parmesan and come with a bowl of truffle mayo. They are the perfect thing to pick at as you sip a cool Asahi and await the arrival of your always late slacker friends.
The bavette steak is a firm favourite and the recent update only added to its deliciousness. Have it rare of course.
The creme brulee was recommended by our waitress as being the chef's pride and joy and it didn't disappoint. A hard shell to crack with the spoon revealing a creamy base.
Everything was excellent and the service flawless and although I confess that I am biased given that this is one of my three favourite places to eat I cannot recommend All Day Trader enough.

We love First Table and the opportunities to try new places, and are so pleased we ate at All Day Trader.
*Warm, friendly service with very attentive wait staff.
*Great food choices with sharing platters, or small and big meal choices.
The tuna, squid, tempura oysters and kokoda prawns were all tasty. Hubby loved the pork belly. We're still salivating over the rich and decadent dark chocolate tart and homemade choc/mint icecream.
*Do not be put off that it is affiliated with a Mall, their food is great, and parking is easy.
*100% recommendation.
*A complimentary dessert for our wedding anniversary was a touching surprise :-)

All Day Trader is our favourite first table restaurant! Very handy having your table clearly identified with a sign with your name on it. The service is fast and friendly, the atmosphere is good for a couple or a group. All the menu items we have tried have been tasty and we usually have a number of the share menu items but the best is the karaage chicken! We have been 3 times and will keep going back.

Great restaurant with fabulous food, service and so convenient to Mall. Our go to place for movie night as it’s just steps away. Wonderful offers $1 oysters during a set period of time, great wine specials including unbeatable Mumm at $65 until sunset at weekends. You won’t be disappointed

Had a very good experience here, the place isn’t very cramped - very spacious.
We’ve been here even without first tables and enjoyed it. Their food is delicious - especially their tuna dish. Would definitely visit again soon.

Not my first time at All DayTrader and it won't be my last. The service is always the right balance of efficient and friendly and the food superb. Bavette steak is great as a main and there are stacks of share or entree sized choices like potato croquettes. Go on a Thursday for the amazing make your own gin night from 5pm.

The Experience we had at All Day Trader was excellent. The Waiters were all friendly, entertaining and helpful. We definitely came away with the desire to go back, as the food was well presented with obvious passion and care with the preparation. We had the seafood platter which was scrumptious, however I recommend you smack your lips around a slow cooked beef burger.

Our first visit to the All Day Trader was for lunch yesterday. We were so impressed, especially with the coffee, that we decided to go back for dinner last evening. We are a couple of oldies both a little disabled however the lovely staff couldn't be more helpful. Superb menu, I had the crispy chicken, my wife had the cheesy bites & helped me share the chicken dish. Both were delicious! We couldn't resist the lemon pavlova, a triumph! So the food is wonderful, service attentive without being intrusive. The restaurant was busy, even so the chefs had our meals out to us without delay. All in all a great experience & we'll be back quick smart! Well done All Day Trader!

All I can say is “WOW” , service was fantastic and super friendly, Foooood was so scrumptious, and that steak ohhhh that steak my mouth just dribbles thinking about it, perfectly cooked so soft and juicy bursting with flavour.
Don’t get me started on the seafood platter, YUM YUM YUMMMMMY
Thank you for a great night out, I don’t get to do it often but I’d gladly do it again in your restaurant.

Amazing service! Nothing better than someone who keeps your wine glass full! BEST BAOS in Auckland! Highly recommend the Broccolini and Karaage Chicken. Can't wait to go back and try the rest of the menu as it is definately going to be the new local!

Allan Robertson

Definitely coming back here! The staff were relaxed and professional, the perfect balance. Great range of beverages - try their gin cocktails. My husband raved about his oysters; fresh, delicious. Our shared charcuterie platter plus broccolini side was plenty for two and was followed by a lemon meringue pavlova -the thick, tangy lemon curd was so good we nearly scraped the glaze off our plates! Thank you for a lovely evening

What a pleasant place to go for "date night". Sitting in the evening sun, sipping on bubbles and eating an array of delicious food from the sharing plate options. Everything was just lovely, and the staff were friendly and attentive. We'll be back!

I like location and easy free parking (mall). I hope I can have more pescatarian friendly choice from main meal menu.

I like open atmosphere but also getting smoking smell from outside tables which is not pleasant.

Over all, I still recommend this place.

Very good Bistro food was good and staff excellent we will return. The only thing they should consider is the volume of the music Ruby the wonderful waitress kindly turned it down, in a bistro/restaurant music should be background and not the dominant the music played was great. Thank you to all.

Open and bright atmosphere as usual. We had steak, fish & chips, beef burger and chicken burger as main, and chocolate mousse and cream brûlée for share. All dishes are good as we expected. If you have non-meat (not just veggie on the plate, I mean nice filling proper meal) main more, I will be more happy. Thanks relax night.

I had the ravioli pasta and it was divine, generous with mushrooms, walnuts and blue cheese. Lovely area to be seated, right by the window with the doors opened up to the summer evening outside. Definitely would recomend this place for good quality and delicious food. The manager is great, circulating around the restaurant making sure things are all okay and customers are happy.
The only improvement I could wish for would be that the music was slightly lower to make conversation easier, but this is minor to an overall excellent experience.

Open and friendly atmosphere as usual. After changed menu, some of my favourites (Arancini and Tuna Poke) have gone. I had fish and chips. Fish portion was much less than last last time and much more batter. Chicken burger has sriracha mayo which is good (last time was very sweet chill sauce we didn’t like it). Creme brûlée and Chocolate mousse are big portion! We love them. Recommend as afternoon treat as well. I hope you have more pescatarian friendly menu like last time. Will come back again.
