    Yes block with robots.txt and you can also use .htaccess too. Leave only those 2 files on the server and remove all files from server. After that ping google.It can take upto 2 weeks do get the whole site deindexed.

    Simply by files removal from your server,will give you error and you can deindexed first by disabling your robot file.
