The 23-year-old daughter of Barack and Michelle was said to be "polite" and "in good spirits", with a source saying that she jokingly complained that she knew she would have to make her way to the more discreet part of the restaurant, despite enjoying herself at the bar. The bar is located near the front of the eatery, meaning that Malia would be more susceptible to being spotted by fans - and so she relocated to a table towards the back of the restaurant where she would be undisturbed.

Malia was sent to be in good spirits 

Rosaline is based on Melrose Avenue in West Hollywood, and offers exquisite Peruvian dishes that are "inspired by tradition" and designed to be shared and served when they are ready. The dinner menu includes everything from beef heart skewers with rocoto pepper and feta cheese to arroz con pollo; a slow-roasted chicken with cilantro rice. Mmm!

Barack previously opened up about how proud he is of his two daughters

He said: "They don't have an attitude – that was what me and Michelle were worried about the most and I write about this in the book – when I talked about running, are we going to end up with weird kids?"

"And Michelle and my mother-in-law were very good with saying 'Listen, you have to make your own beds, you have to wake yourselves up'. They have just turned in exceptional young women. I could not be prouder of them, not because they're smart and accomplished, but they're just kind people."
