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.

After finding this place on trip adviser. We went there after a long day and as we were a group of 6 it is always hard to please every one. This place completely satisfied every one. There was a huge variety of tastes from different meats to the vast variety of stir fried veg, witch we got to choose any combination. You can not only choose any thing you wish the indoor barbecue is really easy to use so its very difficult to spoil your meal. Further more you can eat as much as you wish from the vast menu which might I add has around eight different puddings. You can also help your self to beer, wine and water and soft drinks throughout the meal. Perfect solution one fixed cost every thing sorted and more. You will not be disappointed. Don't mistake this from an all you can eat buffet.
Every thing is fresh as it comes out regular and is kept on a bed of ice to keep it perfectly fresh. Really friendly staff and professionally ran.

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 as many times as you want. You can also choose from a large selection of meats and sausages to grill your selection over their gas/coal fire. I am making it sound more work than it is -- it is very nice, wonderful for families, very informal.
Staff was extraordinarily friendly and eager to please.
Cost is 25 euros apiece, flat, for as much as you want. Price include decent wine, desserts, pre-dinner aperitif, post dinner coffee, cognac (which we declined.)
We ate at a lot of places on our 11 day trip to france. This was one of the ones I recommend wholeheartedly, and would return to if I could. Well worth it.
One of the reasons we chose it was the small Tripadvisor sticker on the restaurant sign.

Thanks again Tripadvisor!

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 prompt and efficient manner. The price and quality were very good.
The food was fresh and there was an excellent array of choices. I would not hesitate to return to Le Sans Gene with a group or with friends.
Thanks to everyone at Le Sans Gene for helping make the groups stay in Caen such a special one.
