The night before, they hit up local restaurant La Guarida with their mothers. Jay puffed on a cigar while she took photos of him, according to restaurant manager Beberan Aemereca, who spoke to E! News about the dinner.

“Everyone was surprised when they came in,” he said. “They looked like a family, like a family dinner. It was like they were on vacation and were very relaxed and happy.”

While inside the Havana restaurant, fans shouted Beyoncé’s name and she eventually went to the balcony to wave to them. “She was beautiful, without a drop of makeup, very natural,” waitress Silvia Fernandez told the AP. “What happened with the people was incredible.” E! reports. Jay-Z also joined her on the balcony to say hi to their fans.

The couple married on April 4, 2008 in a rather secret ceremony in New York City and welcomed their first child, Blue Ivy, into the world in 2012. The same day they celebrated their wedding anniversary, Beyoncé dropped a Pepsi ad featuring a teaser of her new song, “Grown Woman,” off her 2013 album release. On the Timbaland-produced track, she sings, “I could be bad if I want / I can go slow all night long / I’m a grown woman/ Do whatever I want.”

Earlier this week, Bey also dished about being Mrs. Carter in the new issue of Vogue U.K. “I feel like Mrs. Carter is who I am, but more bold and more fearless than I’ve ever been,” she said. “It comes from knowing my purpose and really meeting myself once I saw my child. I was like, ‘OK, this is what you were born to do’. The purpose of my body became completely different.”
