With the engine cool remove the radiator cap. Get a mixture of 50/50 anti-freeze and distilled water. Set the heater to its hottest setting.
Start the car and allow it to reach operating tempreeature then top off radiator and resrviour. Replace radiator cap and test drive.

Just use that as the top off point. It should be the highest point in the coolant system.
