U2’s Bono heads to lunch with daughter Eve Hewson and family in sunny France

U2’s Bono heads to lunch wearing a black face mask and his signature tinted shades as he joins daughter Eve Hewson and family in sunny France

Bono stepped out wearing a black face mask and his signature tinted shades on Wednesday, when he grabbed a bite to eat with his daughter Eve Hewson and wife Ali at La Colombe d’Or.

The family stopped for lunch while enjoying their holiday in Saint-Paul-de-Vence, a mediaeval town in Southeastern France, with the U2 frontman, 61, looking typically stylish in a dark green jacket teamed with black trousers and a T-shirt.

Eve, 29, looked beautiful in a red satin slip dress, while Ali, 60, wowed in a bright orange button-up dress.

Ali also wore a face mask in keeping with pandemic protocol.

Meanwhile, Netflix star Eve teamed her beautiful dress with a white fedora and accessorised with a delicate necklace.

The family were joined by Bono’s bodyguards as they spent time abroad together.

It comes two months after the superstar enjoyed a blow-out birthday bash with his nearest and dearest in London.

Joined by his daughters Eve and Jordan, 32, Bono and his family rang in his 61st year at the upmarket Scott’s in Mayfair.

Two days later Bono, Ali and Behind Her Eyes star Eve – whose birthday falls on the same day as her famous father’s – were spotted continuing the celebrations over lunch at the River Café in Hammersmith, with Bono making time for a chinwag with the eatery’s owner, Ruth Rogers.

Earlier in July, MailOnline reported that the West London café – a favourite among A-listers including Gigi Hadid and Kate Moss – does not share its optional 12.5 per cent service charge with staff.

Restaurants are not allowed to keep cash tips left for waiting staff but can take the service charge – now a more popular way for customers to thank staff as the use of cash is discouraged due to Covid.

A River Café waiter said they now only take home about £20 a week each from cash left by diners.

Workers say they believe the money is classed as ‘revenue’ by Ruth, who became Baroness Rogers of Riverside when her architect husband Richard Rogers was ennobled in 1996. Staff would rather it was added to their shift rate of £87.

Earlier in July a TripAdvisor review, which has since disappeared, claimed that the policy has been in place since before Covid.

The reviewer, ‘Sinitta’, said: ‘I was appalled to discover service goes directly to management. Out of principle I refuse to return here. River Cafe should be ashamed.’
