Husband and I went here on a Monday night two weeks ago. We were just one of two couples in the restaurant-so I'm not sure the vibe was as it could have been. it is kind of like Fire and Ice in Boston or Stir Crazy in New York (You choose the bowl of vegetables and it is stir fried... More

I went to the Sans Gene in Caen with my husband and my daughter of 15. I wanted to invite them there because of their internet site, which gives you the interest to come. You cook yourself and it is amazing. I must say that we were not disappointed at all. People are really kind, explain how it happens and... More

I picked this restaurant because I was craving veggies and meat. At a fixed price you get to pick your veggies, oils and meats to your hearts content. Then you grill them yourself which was a cool experience. All the veggies were fresh and tasty and the meat was outstanding. Highly recommend!

The idea is very good and I imagine profitable for the owners. Essentially you stand and cook your own food but its sociable and the selection of meats is good and the on tap wine is perfectly drinkable.

Great service, great food. Place is clean. Very friendly staff. Unlimited food and wine as well as soft drinks. For beer you pay extra but that's no problem. Deserts were great and you can help yourself with as many as you can handle. Very easy going atmosphere. Made our evening out.

To Americans in Caen: Le Sans Gene is a place where you choose from amongst a TON of fresh veggies, and oils, and your choice is stir fried before you Teppan style (think Benihana.) It is fresh fresh fresh and very nice. It is sort of (BUT NOT REALLY) a buffet so you can go back to the veggie selection... More

I recently took a group of 45 people to Le Sans Gene. The whole concept was really original and Kids and adults alike had a great evening, so much so that they gave the restaurant a standing ovation when we left! All of the staff were really friendly and all of the preparations for the booking were handled in a... More

We travelled especiallly to visit this establishment having read the reviews on Trip Advisor, as we wanted a special meal on the last night of our holiday with friends. We had read how accommodating the staff are, but our experience was quite the opposite. Notwithstanding that we were a party of 10, we turned up at an empty restaurant at... More

On arrival you are given a drink, you chose your vegetables and oil and it is cooked for you. You choose your selection of meat and cook it yourself. Potatoes are provided. Several puddings and cheese follow. Wine is included in the price and bread and coffee. Pleasant staff. A good fun experience
