In brief: Both are Excellent
Both are excellent technologies.
The best lens for you is the one that satisfies your visual demand. A conversation discussing lifestyle and expectations with your surgeon will help direct your lens choice.

In brief: It depends on you
Each lens works, but achieves its goal differently.
It is even possible to use one type in one eye and the other type in the other eye; this can allow you to enjoy the strengths of both and often minimize the weakness of each. In order to know which lens would be best, you should consult with a surgeon who implants both types, and who will spend the time figuring out which is best for you.

In brief: Both have strengths
The restor lens provides an excellent range of vision.
However it does carry the risk of halos and glare around lights especially when driving at night . The crystalens also provides a good a range of vision (but not as effective as the restor) but if implanted correctly has a lower side effect profile.

In brief: Depends
There are two classes of intra-ocular lenses (iols) approved for cataract surgery and presbyopia correction - i.
E striving to obtain good uncorrected distance and near vision: multifocal and accomodative. The restor is a multifocal lens and the crystalens is an accomodative lens. Comparing them is apples to oranges; the strengths and weakness of each must be customized to the indiv. Patient.
