Halle Berry loves spending as much time as possible with her adorable daughter Nahla.
But as she is away enjoying some quality time with her father Gabriel Aubry, the Catwoman star took advantage of her freedom by going on a date with her beau Olivier Martinez.
The pair were spotted in West Hollywood today after they enjoyed a slap up holiday meal together.
Making the most of free time: Halle Berry enjoyed a dinner date with beau Olivier Martinez today
The pair enjoyed a slap-up meal at posh Italian restaurant Cecconi's, though they both looked surprisingly glum considering they had just enjoyed such a treat.
Halle, 45, looked splendid in a classy grey pullover that kept her warm in the chilly winter weather.
Olivier did not look quite as distinguished in a blue shirt and jeans combo, though he did look chivalrous enough to handle tipping the valet.
Relaxed affair: Halle arrived at the upmarket eatery in a pair of ripped jeans while Olivier was wearing a jumper over a shirt and jeans
Relaxed: As well as her dressed down jeans Halle wore a pair of flats to the restaurant
Happy chappy: The hunky French actor looked like he was excited to be leaving the upmarket restaurant
Why so glum? Despite the slap up meal Halle did not look overly impressed
Instead of using the passenger door Halle climbed into the car using the driver's side before sliding across into her seat.
Olivier then climbed in after her, took the wheel and drove them away.
The dynamic duo met when they filmed the movie Dark Tide together last year, and their relationship seems to be going from strength to strength. They even spent time together in Spain in September.

Casual attire: Olivier had donned a blue shirt and jeans for the meal
While Halle was having lunch with her boyfriend, her three-year-old daughter enjoyed an afternoon out at Los Angeles' Pan Pacific Park with her hunky father Gabriel.
The two, who wore matching outfits, had a great time as they explored the fun playground.
Didn't fancy the other door? Halle was seen climbing into the drivers seat before moving across to the passenger one
In the hot seat: Olivier took the wheel and sped awayGabriel and Halle are continuing to battle over custody of the ambrosial youngster, with the Monster's Ball star winning their most recent court battle.
A Los Angeles judge refused Aubry’s request to rescind a requirement that a nanny be present whenever he has custody of Nahla while the two were in Europe this past October.
Much more fun: Gabriel Aubry and Nahla looked like they were having a wild time as they explored the park together
Happy couple: The pair love spending time together and were pictured here in Spain in September
