Actually, the site owners are those who have total access to the control of the website on the Google console toolkit. This means, they have access to all the important information, data and actions that are taking place on the website.

Full users have similar permissions as site owners. Although they have access to all the information and take most site actions, they are unable to provide access to the website and add users or owners.

As the name itself says, a restricted user has more restriction when it comes to permissions for the website.
