Continental Deli CBD
Founded by Elvis Abrahanowicz and Joe Valore of Porteño, and Jesse Warkentin and Michael Nicolian (of Bodega and Gardel’s Bar).
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.
You can expect to see many of our most popular dishes, our in house tinned seafood, our famous tinned cocktails as well many new dishes to try.
Amazing food in a great location. Very difficult to hear people with the noise levels from the concrete floors.
Everything you'd expect from this team of experts! A fantastic spread and variety of food, served by fantastic staff in amazing surroundings.
Great wine list and love the Deli selection
Great food great service but man so noisy you have to really yell just to be heard . Tjann
The food was fantastic but the restaurant can be very loud at certain parts of the night. Service was great as well!
The staff were very friendly and helpful with the wine and food choices. They accommodated dietary requirements beautifully and everyone thought the food was delicious. As we were a group, we had the set menu. There was a good variety of food and most of us left very full. My only comment is that it is a very noisy restaurant. We had a lovely time - thanks for having us.
Fantastic food and service but quite expensive and very noisy
Wonderful venue great food and staff. The wine list is unreasonably expensive. Ultimately it will cost business. What a pity
Best city restaurant experience ever. Everything they've done has been really thought out and done with style and authenticity. Get there.
Great to have the guys from Newtown in the city, good vibe and perfect for a business lunch, will be back for sure.
The octopus and mango dish is very good. The service is excellent
Whilst the food was tasty & the staff attentive, the noise was unbearable.
We were not the only table struggling.
Too much hard standings. Need noise reduction implementing. Also keep the music to soft background sound not dominating.
This place was amazing. The recommendations from the staff were spot on. The kale bucatini was one of the nicest dishes I’ve ever had. Great cocktails, great music, great food, great people. Will be back.
This place is a true Gem. The food is amazing and the staff were very welcoming and professional. Love this place
Very interesting menu and attentive wait staff. We loved everything we tried!
Big fan of Continental Deli in Newtown and was please the CBD Deli opened so close to my office.
Took three colleagues in and we had a great meal. One of my colleagues is vegetarian and also allergic to alcohol (including in vinaigrette’s etc.) and the staff were very accommodating.
I had the French Dip sandwich... was great. Reminded me of Ross’ Moist Maker in Friends but to the quality you’d expect from somewhere like Continentala Deli.
Overall service and food were great - only thing to note is we were glad we booked! Looked to be a small queue forming when we arrived.
