Kristen Stewart celebrated her 23rd birthday with Robert Pattinson at a Mexican restaurant on Tuesday night (09.04.13).

The 'Twilight' couple hired out a private area at Malo in Los Angeles for a 40-strong crowd of her closest pals, including 'Spring Breakers' star Ashley Benson.

The pair chatted with a friend in a car outside the venue before heading into the eatery. The party-goers then moved on to No Vacancy bar to enjoy a fun-filled evening of drinks and dancing.

The evening was a smash success, with Kristen's friend Scout Taylor Compton tweeting: ''My feet have never danced so much. They are very happy indeed.''

Earlier in the day, the pair were spotted at 90s boy band Hanson's album release party at Los Angeles Jane's House Lounge with Ashley and their 'Twilight' co-star Nikki Reed.

Kristen was showered with gifts by Rob on her birthday after a tumultuous year for their relationship following her cheating scandal with married director Rupert Sanders last summer.

The Hollywood heartthrob presented her with an engraved £30,000 fountain Bentley pen to add to her collection of expensive writing tools.

Robert also gave her an antique bracelet and allegedly asked her to move back in with him properly.

An insider commented: ''They've been taking it slowly, but Kristen has gradually won back his trust. Rob has taken a giant leap by officially suggesting they buy a love nest together.''
