Hiddleswift strikes again.

Taylor Swift and Tom Hiddleston were spotted out to dinner in Gold Coast, Australia, on Saturday.

After spending time with Hiddleston’s parents in England, touring Rome and celebrating the Fourth of July with a star-studded extravaganza at Swift’s Rhode Island estate, the new couple arrived Down Under on Friday.

“They had dinner at Gemelli Italian restaurant. Taylor told the staff that Italian is her favorite food and she was very excited to try the food,” a source tells PEOPLE. “Taylor and Tom walked in hand-in-hand and left the same way. They spent several hours at dinner before returning to their hotel in a chauffeured car.”

Swift wore a plunging floral midi dress and tan heels, and her beau wore a navy shirt and dark wash jeans.

A source also tells PEOPLE that the couple has been “very friendly” to the staff at their hotel, as well as the Hiddleswift lovers that have gathered outside.

“They have encountered fans inside the hotel several times and have been very gracious,” the source added.

Hiddleston, 35, played coy, however, when a reporter grilled the actor about his “girlfriend” before he headed out for a Swift-less jog on the beach with his trainer.

When asked how Swift was enjoying Australia, the actor laughed and said he didn’t want to answer the question. He said, “I don’t know,” when asked what they were looking forward to doing on their trip.

Swift and Hiddleston met in May at the Met Gala, and started dating shortly after Swift’s 15-month relationship with DJ Calvin Harris ended that same month.
