It's a 15 minute walk. You'll have to email Saveur to check out availability. They do have a vegetarian set 5 course menu.

Un seule personne nous a parler en Francais lorsque mous avons visiter ce restaurant. Le nom du restaurant est en Francais mais je penses que c'est leur limite et ils ont qu'une personne du staff qui parle en Francais.
