If you want to prevent particular search engine, use following codes:

User-agent: *
Disallow: /

The "User-agent: *" means this section applies to all robots.

To prevent un-needed bots to access the site,

User-Agent: *
Disallow: /

And to just allow Google,  use the following,

User-Agent: Googlebot
Disallow:
