We had afternoon tea here followed by a mocktail - and enjoyed every minute of the experience. Our table was at the window and, because the glass goes to the floor, we did feel a little dizzy at first - but it was worth it for the truly stunnning views. The veggie afternoon tea was unusually thoughtful (some seem to... More

Right. I am at the Cloud as I type and it is a very warm day in Man. Inside the cloud is very unpleasant: hot! The staff apologized saying that this is the best performance of the air con system! A multimillion pound building with poor Aircon..... The rumors are true then. They say the same about the flats....

My Daughter took me for champagne afternoon tea for my Birthday. We were very lucky with the weather as the views are amazing, made us both feel a bit dizzy at first as well sat in the corner so sheer drops either side! The bar area definitely has the 'wow' factor, although I do agree with another comment that some... More

Me and my husband visited Cloud 23 for afternoon tea and cocktails. The bar is beautifully designed and the views are absolutely stunning. However, some of the furniture is starting to look a bit dirty and tatty. For example the leather on our chair was peeling and our side table was wobbly. Out server was very pleasant and worked very... More

Enjoyed the afternoon tea and views! Service a little slow, a couple of nit picks, no teaspoons or sugar was brought, for the tea, also we had a mousse to eat ...no spoons for this, ordered a water, it never arrived. Think these little issues need addressing!

We came here for afternoon tea and whilst the view and the food was good, I think the £17 charged for 1 Gin and Tonic is a little steep. Also if you're sat on the tables in the window immediately in front of you as you get out of the lift on a sunny afternoon, prepare to get very sweaty,... More

Took my mum here for her birthday present and we really enjoyed the experience. The food was excellent and very well presented. The staff were also very friendly and really made us feel welcome. If you only do one thing on a trip to Manchester then I would recommend this.

I want to say a very BIG THANK YOU to Hanna who works at Cloud 23, who made our day on Saturday. My mum was 70 and my stepdad was 60 so I took them for a meal and I wanted to surprise them with cocktails as Cloud 23. I wanted to book but i was told I couldn't make... More

Have been here a few times... We where with friends and they had booked a table with drinks, had to pay a deposit of £40 per couple. Whilst you are committed to spend a few quid the benefit of booking is you don't have to wait at the lift, straight up and in, nice table, drinks already freshly served, and... More
