Ambience makes all of the difference when it comes to dining.
The view, the sultry smells, the cool crowd, the buzz, the vibe and the architecture can make all of the difference.
Eating and watching a competitive female grappling match has the makings of a great day.
If you are in Prague and want to experience a fantastic place to eat and drink coffee, Bistro Proti is such a place.
“All four elements were happening in equal measure – the cuisine, the wine, the service, and the overall ambience. It taught me that dining could happen at a spiritual level.”… Charlie Trotter
The informative and enticing site wallpaper.com is happy to serve as our host. “With an ever-growing number of cool cafés, wine bars and shops, Prague’s Karlín district is fast becoming a haven for the hip set. Its latest arrival, is Bistro Proti, a cozy corner eatery with a sleek interior inspired by the neighborhood’s most significant historical figure, engineer František Križík.
The restaurant is a twenty-year long dream come true for journalist husband and wife team David and Karolina Konecný, who tasked local atelier Mimosa and architecture firm Modulora to outfit the space. As such, the stark white room is defined by a series of black cables which – embellishing the wall behind the Corten steel counter – are functionally attached to the restaurant’s pendant lighting fixtures, while forming a visual grid-like pattern. Clean oak furnishings and marble floors are elegant additions to an otherwise industrial space, which serves an all-day breakfast menu along with light additions such as soups, sandwiches and home-made desserts.”
“Eating is one of the great beauties in life. One of my favorite recreations… eating with friends, the service, the ambience.”….. LeRoy Neiman
The reviewers agree.
Here are some from foursquare.com. “Don’t miss this new place! They serve soup of the day, salads, sandwiches and amazing cakes. Everything is fresh and tasty. Service is perfect!”
“One of the best cafés in Prague. Number one for me. Try their sandwiches, cakes, whatever and you will fall in love with this place as well!!”
Let’s turn to a travel expert, tripadvisor.com to add to the flavor. “I really enjoyed this place, the atmosphere is great and the staff as well, very nice and kind. The coffee, but especially food really worth it, I had cappuccino and “spread Proti proudu” and everything was delicious!”
Wonderful. How about one more. “The sandwiches and desserts at this restaurant are simply incredible! The service has always been so welcoming and knowledgeable. Every time I have visitors in Prague I make sure to take them here to enjoy a comfortable atmosphere and truly delicious comfort food!”
You my friend are starting to look satisfied.

FW-25: Revana vs Jane
Release date: December 30, 2015
In her first competitive match Jane is determined to prove that she is not just all looks, but a capable wrestler, and that she deserves to challenge higher ranked wrestlers, and get a shot at the title against the champion herself. But Revana has different plans. She is tired of getting defeated, and is determined to end her losing streak by grabbing her first victory against the newcomer, who only just started mastering her holds.
Opponents are closely matched size-wise, both weighing in at 55 kg (121 lb.). Revana might have the edge in experience, but Jane has the edge in physical fitness, thanks to years of professional pole-dancing. Will Revana finally be able to come out on top? Or will Jane, despite lack of competitive wrestling experience, achieve victory and move up the rankings? Find out today!
This promises to be a great match.
