Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart jetted off to Spain – well, a little piece of Spain amid the wintry gloom of Vancouver – for date night on Saturday.

The couple, who are filming the Twilight movie Breaking Dawn in town, were spotted enjoying a late dinner at one of Pattinson’s favorite small restaurants, the Spanish tapas bar La Bodega, downtown on Howe Street.

The pair, who were joined by costar Kellan Lutz, as well as Stewart’s bodyguard and his date and three other friends, sat at a large table in the loft of the restaurant, tucked away in a corner.

After sharing a number of plates of tapas, they left around midnight and strolled back to their hotel about three blocks away – with Pattinson and Stewart splitting off into one small group, and Lutz in another.

Pattinson and Stewart were both decked out almost all in black, clearly trying to keep a low profile – but were in high spirits and being warmly affectionate with one another, swinging their hands back and forth and laughing.

Filming is expected to continue in Vancouver until mid-April.
