    It depends on what you want to do. There are many meta robots tags that can help you for a different purpose. But if you make restitution to the SE spiders to do not crawl your webiste so robots.txt file is better.

    Robot.txt is good to block a specific category/folder
    Robot Meta is good to block a individual page

    Robots.txt is a text file that lists webpages which contain instructions for search engines robots. The file lists webpages that are allowed and disallowed from search engine crawling.
