See the "Restore your device from an iCloud backup" section in:

Just be aware that restore is an all or nothing process. You cannot selectively restore only contacts (for example) and the info on your iPhone between now and when the backup was made will be lost. But from your question, I think you already know that. Also, as an FYI:

If you were syncing contacts to iCloud, they won't be part of your backup. If you were syncing, try going to iCloud.com/Contacts using a computer browser to see if they are there.


Go to iCloud.com using a computer and select Settings. When that page loads, look at the bottom left side under Advanced and see if you can restore from there.
