La Fable Brasserie, located on the beach block of Rehoboth's iconic Baltimore Avenue, offers traditional French cuisine with a bohemian Parisian street cafe flair. Whether you choose to join "Fable" for an early meal or cocktail during Leve-Tot, for an intimate dinner with friends, or to enjoy a late night rendezvous at our "piano" bar, we hope for each guest to create their own dining story.

La Fable is a true French Bistro. From the decor to the limited menue and the execution of the dishes. The escargots were tender and dressed in the traditional garlic parsley butter bath. My Coquille St Jacques was executed in the French tradition. The sauce...More
