Continental Deli Newtown
Continental is the realised passion for a neighbourhood deli. Bring your basket to purchase your specialty deli essentials, be it charcuterie for your next days sandwich, fromage for a friend, or all the elements for a perfect picnic. We have sourced what we consider the most interesting, rare and delicious cheeses and charcuterie as well as an impressive range of tinned delicacies; anchovies from the Bay of Biscay, clams and cockles from Galicia, sardines from France. We are however most proud of the items we have canned ourselves from incredible local produce.

A little expensive (Eg bread for two people , one piece each is 8 dollars which is an incredible mark up on the cost of a loaf) but the food is delicious so worth it for a special occasion , just don’t other the bread if you have a budget ;)
Delicious food and amazing service! Highly recommend!
Best cocktails and amazing food! Great for shared meals and the cheese platters are amazing
I love this place. Charcuterie and cheeses are always great and the other dishes are even better. A relatively small menu but everything is delicious. The jerusalem artichoke risotto and XO carbonara rigatini on the menu at the moment are just pure food pleasure. Have eaten here six or seven times in the last four months (one home delivery) and even though I've ordered some of the same dishes three times, I'd still go back and order them again.
Always delicious. The fennel salad was as good as I remember.
Always amazing food, great service and lovely atmosphere!
This is quick becoming a favourite spot. Everything I've eaten here has been superb, and the cocktails are great. Plus you can order a mocktail off-menu
We had a lovely time amazing food and great service. Thank you so much
Our first time and will definitely be back. Food, wine and cocktails all amazing.
Only downfall, our waitress seemed a bit under-the-pump due to a busy service, and came off a little dismissive at times. She also spilled half a glass of wine on the table when pouring and didn’t even notice/apologise. Given it was an $80 bottle and we were a little disappointed, but understand these things happen.
Very good. Service was great. When they didn't have a cocktail I wanted they offered a free drink which was very good of them. Overall pleasant experience.
Terrific food and great value for our set menu. Our lactose intolerant guest of honour received individual tweaked dishes without fuss. Perfect evening. Thanks.
I love everything about this place, simple food done well and great staff and cocktails too!
Very cool lil place, tasty wholesome bistro food, nice ambiance. Mar-tinnys and charcuterie are delicious
lovely meal and great atmosphere - will be back!!!
All was perfect. But we sat down the infront of cold cut and cheese fridge, it is difficult to call a front desk staff.
We are so happy with our experience! Its really nice to be back for dinner and you guys made it amazingly!
I got to sit at the bar and the staff recommended wonderful food and drink options. Everything was super tasty and I’ll be back again soon for a Sandwich
Friendly attentive service, pleasant vibe with superbly flavoured and varied food - quite well priced for the high quality and ample servings. Highly recommended.
Such a nice atmosphere - great food and great wine! Loved every bit of our experience.
We were seated at the bar which I love, seeing the bartenders do their thing, the meats being sliced and cheese carefully curated. As always the food was delicious and impeccable service to match. Continental Deli is a favourite.
Great atmosphere, amazing service, we enjoyed a few drinks and share plates. One of my favourite places to enjoy a sunday afternoon in Sydney.
amazing food, beautiful service. We were particularly taken aback by the meatball and parmesan sandwich & salted beef roll. Outstanding.
It was out first dinner date in two months. It was amazing!
Beautiful restaurant - eating in the bistro or the deli is fantastic either way. Loved the flan in a can!
I would recommend this restaurant however I think that it should be made clear on the website that selecting the time from 3-6 pm will allow you to only eat sandwiches and charcuterie plates. I was extremely disappointed when I was told this on the day hoping to celebrate my birthday with friends and a proper meal !!!!
High quality as always! Love this venue and it never fails to impress - the service is impeccable, the food is always so delicious and the wine list has a great selection.
Odd that a banquet order for 4 people would have uneven numbers of charcuterie items. It just made things a little awkward to negotiate.
We also needed to request bread to eat it with when it did seem every table surrounding us who were eating similar dishes were supplied with.
That said the food was great and there was more than enough to eat.
The cocktails really do need some looking at in my opinion as while their price is in the ballpark for Sydney there is way too much ice in the tall glasses
Lovely neighbourhood spot - friendly service, intimate atmosphere & great food.
Banquet for $65 was a no brainer with fabulous food & lots of it. Bit noisy upstairs but good service.
Nice and quiet (which is becoming rare) place, elaborated food with simple and fresh ingredients, unusual mix of savours and ingredients, good portions without exaggeration.
Recommended for a nice dinner with somebody you do appreciate and share a good moment with.
Great creative food with good portions at ok prices, can be noisy, especially at shared table. Service excellent.
Beautiful lunch - cheese and charcuterie suggestions by Melvin were unbelievably delicious and the wine suggested was incredible.
Awesome experience overall and the food was on point. The waiter new the wine list enough to know exactly what I described I wanted in a wine and came through with the goods. Was also a first date so with all this said it paid off choosing to go here
The restaurant is great, however it feels like the portions got smaller in the last 6 months and the value for the money was not there. Also its a bit sad paying 75 bucks p for a 8 small courses to finish eating chicken with expensive wine and tiny entrees to share. Service was good, a bit noise when you have to share the big table as there is a birthday party.
My partner and I had a sumptuous and beautifully presented meal at Continental Newtown.
The service was top notch and ambience perfectly aligned to our food.
Had a fantastic experience at Continental Deli! Food was amazing, service was great and atmosphere was perfect. Would definitely go again and recommend to others.
Cute little venue. Suggest sticking to the downstairs space as upstairs is an echoing cacophony. Had a lovely, umami-rich strozzapretti with kale and chickpea, but all other dishes lacked va va voom and were extortionate. The wine list is on point, but again budget breaking. What a shame
Absolutely amazing, best service I’ve had in a while and charcuterie I didn’t even think we got in Australia - highly recommend!
Yes! Yes! Yes! Just love it. The meatball sandwich is just to die for and the Grenache simply delightful to partner it. Thanks all x
Continental Deli Newtown is superb, with a really interesting menu that honours tradition while updating it for a modern sensibility. The food is full of flavour yet delicate, with an excellent wine list to match. We went for the Chef's Menu, which offered a great sampler of their most famous dishes for a very reasonable $65pp. Would enthusiastically recommend to anyone!
