We booked for afternoon tea, the service was excellent, staff very helpful, the food was what you would expect for afternoon tea, but the view is what you really come for. However ask what price alcoholic drinks are, or just have the tea or coffee that is included in the price of the afternoon tea.

Cloud 23 is based at the Hilton Hotel on Deansgate on the 23rd floor, We went on a friday evening around 6pm and our names were on the guest list but there was no wait and we was straight into the fast lift...

Not as good as it once was. However, the redeeming feature is the fabulous views over Manchester. My friend and I visited a couple of weeks ago on a Saturday afternoon after having lunch at a local Italian restaurant. We had a couple of glasses of wine which were ridiculously overpriced and a bit of a rip off to be... More

came here today for a quick drink before dinner. The place was nice, and clean but wait staff very aloof. Took 20 minutes to get our drink orders. For a place that charges ridiculous prices, you would think they have elegant menus, but it was shabby and dirty. My brother in law asked for another beer, and the waitress rolled... More

This place is so dire! The management is disgusting, the staff are extremely rude! Do not pay a visit, it is a rip off! Very judgemental atmosphere! After travelling all over the world in 5 star hotels I'm appalled to even say I have been here! Utter S***

Visited here in May whilst on the trip from London. Fabulous range of cocktails on offer whilst sipping away your cocktails. Definitely recommend booking prior going so you can skip the never ending line! Lovely private life straight up to the bar over looking the whole if Manchester. We were placed at a bad table without many views but after... More

Attended for afternoon tea for my girlfriends birthday - 22 August 2015. Was sat with a window seat, and with it being August 2015, the weather was quite warm. Needless to say that attending a restaurant as respected as this, I would have thought they would have it well air-conditioned. I was like a green house. Absolutely sweltering. There was... More

The view was special as you would expect, the cocktails were tasty (but pricey). Unfortunately, the service was a little dissapointing. The initial waitress needed prompting in order to serve us, which was a shame. Overall, a worthwhile visit just for the view alone, but I won't be back in a hurry again.
