There's no such thing as "the best interface", you choose one that best fits your needs, operating environment, requirements or knowledge.

Avaiable options may include C/C++, Java, PSQL, TCL, PHP, PERL, PYTHON and maybe more (some are subject to compile options)

need to specify exactly what you mean by "interface"
for example here www.sqlmanager.net GUI interface to administer and manage PostgreSQL DBMS

If it's you personally that wants to interface with the database then I'd suggest either the command line interface that comes with postgres called psql. If you want something GUI than check out pgadmin3.

As an aside, if you want to be taken seriously, you might want to take the time to write like you have an education that extends beyond the kindergarten of IRC
